Still waiting

So I’ve effectively wasted another day waiting for the Electrolux man to show up. My two month old washing machine is springing a leak somewhere.

So soon? Well, I guess I should consider myself lucky it’s still under warranty. I’ve had stuff conk out days after the warranty period expired so I guess this is good then 🙄 .

Still, I hate calling for service. I’d rather fix stuff myself, if I can. Even if it means thumbing through those utterly useless manuals (reminiscent of the ones for my new microwave oven that I’ve had to read from cover to cover, twice, recently) and making a big mess.

The manual mentioned something about the filter cap being loose maybe so I went on my knees, found the darned thing and stuck it back in tight. But that, apparently, wasn’t it! Because it’s still leaking from underneath.

So I had no choice but to call the company last Thursday. Yes, that’s 4 days to call me back and 2 (and counting) days to not even show up. See what I mean? It’s a total waste of my time. I actually put off my breakfast date with a girl friend because the guy said he was on his way over. He must’ve gotten lost in the swamps of Florida 🙄 !
