Why won't this F-ing shovel break?!?!?

As I was about 10 minutes into my afternoon shoveling escapade, (round two for the day) it hit me.  Why won't this F-ing shovel break?  I spent the next 20-30 minutes shoveling and thinking, trying to will it, my shovel falling apart in pieces.  The ironic part is, at some point over the last storm or two, it cracked on the face of it.

It's like someone is toying with me.  This cracked shovel, holding strong through multiple snow storms now!  Countless hours of shoveling.  However many hundreds of pounds of snow I have picked up and launched somewhere, be it my yard, the front edge, the deck, etc.  Still, it holds together and keeps on tiring me out.

I don't get it.  Any other item I have owned seems to break quite regularly.  Why not this F-ing shovel!  By the time I was done, I decided it is now a mission to see how long I can go with my F-ing cracked shovel before I have to buy another one.

Bring on the snow!!!

This isn't mine, but I feel a bond with its owner!
