I got a guitar for my birthday one year. I think I was 10. It was ordered through a magazine and arrived in the mail, waiting for me when I got home from school. So I ripped the packaging open as fast as I could. I took the guitar out and literally strummed the strings once and half of the strings just snapped. It turns out I wasn't just ridiculously strong or a terrible musician, it was just a really cheap guitar. Once my parents saw the devastation I put on that thing, they took me out and got a me a proper guitar. I still play that same guitar, 20 years later.
