Default [Q] Tight Micro USB ?

Hello,
I have noticed that my micro USB is pretty tight. I have to insert the charging cable with a slight angle and wiggle it a lot to unplug it.
Is this normal ?
Thanks for the feedback !

The charger that came with mine is also pretty tight but all other chargers I have used seem fine. Maybe it just needs to be broken in a bit? haha

Tight is better than loose. The cable keeps falling out of my N7.

The micro USB cable that came with the phone isn't what I would consider 'tight', although 'snug' seems more appropriate in my case. I definitely don't have to maneuver the cable into the phone to charge it, nor do I have to wiggle it a lot to pull it out.

I realize if you remove 'micro USB', 'cable' and 'phone' from my post, it could be taken WAY out of context...

Edit: Actually this is the case with this entire thread =P

Actually, it's been several years since I taught 9th graders so I don't often instinctively think "that way" these days! It was so second nature--especially with Shakespeare.
Thanks for the chuckle. (I LOVED 9th graders---really!)
Oh, and after reading this, it was REALLY hard for me not to reply (there) to your "Kind of a bummer but after the first time you should be fine" in another thread.

Same here, my micro USB is very snug. I had some trouble with it multiple times, especially in the dark. I've sort of figured out the right angle to plug it in at now. Just not used to it being this difficult time compared to my old phone and nexus 7
