Why I Went For LG OLED TV Despite Protests from the Lady of the House

People have always told me that I am a ‘man of class’. I don’t know where they got that title from but from the way they always smile while pronouncing it, it is obvious that the title is of good intentions coupled with a certain hidden admiration.

And as a ‘man of class’, I always want the best in terms of electronics and to me, the brand, other than the product itself matters a lot. The reason why I often prefer a brand to a product when it comes to electronics is simple: a good tree rarely gives forth to spoilt and rotten fruits.

Talking of brands, I have this unusual craving for LG products than anybody else in this part of the Sahara. I don’t know how it happened but if it was to be tied to a relationship, I would say it was ‘love on first sight.’

From my microwave to some branded mugs and water bottles, to my precious mobile phone, they are all LG. the moment you step into my living room, the first thing that would run into your mind is that I work with LG. Anyway, this is not what I was planning to talk to you about but the LG OLED TV.

Just between me and you, in my house, there are two warring parties. These parties are; yours truly, me and the Lady of the House. I usually call her the CS in charge of all affairs home. Of late she has been holding ‘silent protests’ wanting me to include the ‘Electronics’ department into her docket. In short, she has been demanding for a handshake so that we can agree that I will be consulting her before buying an electronic like TV. There is no way am going to fall for this because she is a darling of Sony and am not ready to let go, not even to imagine being without LG.

The World Cup was fast approaching and as part of the new year’s resolution, which I had set five years ago, there was no way I was going to watch the much-awaited world tournament on my Vasco Da Gama-like screen. I wanted to watch the game as though I was right there in Russia and the only way I could do that was to purchase a brand new LG OLED TV. It was the newest on the market.

I had been saving for it since December 2017. I woke up one morning and broke the ‘good’ news to my CS in charge of All Affairs Home. I told her I was going to buy an LG OLED TV. She looked at me with narrowed eyes like an investigator going through an NYS tender. She cleared her throat, stood up as though she wanted to confirm whether I was making one of my usual dry jokes. She realized I was serious.

Wewe nawe na LG, haunanga kitu ingine kwa akili,” she said at last. It sounded like an insult to me though but I was in no time to sit and do insult analysis. “Wewe end ubuy LG. Nitatafuta pesa nibuy yangu.” She said. I could tell she did it with a heavy heart but deep within I knew she was happy because her soap opera viewing experience was going to move to another level.

As a person with a passion for electronics, I usually either buy from an official distributor or buy from the brand office itself. This time I went to LG Brandshop Kenrail Towers to fulfill my dream of owning the much coveted LG OLED TV. To cut the long story short, I will not tell you the long story. The bone of the matter is I now have the LG OLED TV in my living room though am considering hiring someone to watch over my remote control because one or two times it has found its way in the handbag of the lady of the house.

Why did I go for LG OLED TV? I will tell you soon.
