Seems like your mouse never broke (or, if you have a wireless one, the battery in it has never died, and if it did, you could immediately replace it).

Or are you the type that does everything on a touchscreen? Because, judging from your logic, traditional computer controls must die too...

The high frequency of mouse failure, the high cost of downtime and the low price of mice suggest that having spare mice makes sense.

By your logic, I would be stranded at the side of the road wishing I had a spare tyre.

That's not quite a correct analogy because modern systems allow you to do things without mouse. Still there are some individuals that obviously strive to take those possibilities away and make a mouse like a tyre. I'm really happy it's not the case yet.
