Broke my first today. Pinched the top too hard and it shattered.

823 + 1 = 824

+2 = 826

Accidentally dropped one into a pot and then gripped the extra one too hard out of anger.

My first one. Only 7 months after buying that damn thing. Shook it over the sink to get excess water off. Like a dumbass, I let it connect with the side of the sink. Still seeing red for being such a fool.

Opened a vintner's best equipment kit at the shop today, inside was a broken ALLA hydrometer.
Called distributor, new one is on the way.

This still counts... right?

If you don't personally own it I wouldn't count it.
