Light bulb burnt-out after only a day?

I got this lamp from my grandmother. It takes "type A" 300Watt bulbs which I bought from home depot (they're expensive!). It was a pack of 2 and yesterday the first one stopped working after only a month or 2. I replaced it and today the second stopped working.

Is it possible the lamp is broken? It worked yesterday. Also, we don't keep this light on a lot by any means.

The employee at home depot also told me not to let oils from your skin get on it cause it reduces the life expectancy so I used paper towels

Any advice?
