Two Things Before I Do Something Else

1. As I rounded a bend this a.m. a dog ran out in front of my car and when I slammed on the brakes I yelled DUMB ASS!! there were no witnesses so you'll just have to take my word for it. ironically enough I was on my way to Allstate to have the car damage estimate, glad I didn't have rover wedged into the front grill--would have looked bad for my case

2. GE is a liar. LIAR. Drew emailed a complaint about our microwave breaking in less than three years to GE's friendly complaint dept. They said oh how awful we'll send a repairman to fix it on Friday for $75.00. Outrageous I know, could have gotten a new one yada ya. But Father Al thinks we should repair what we have instead of throwing it out to clog our land fills and kill polar bears. I agreed.

When the repairmen got here it was, "Labor is seventy five dollars, you have to pay for the part and you have to pay us for this $75.00 service call even if we don't do anything because we're already here."

The total bill was $189.oo. I won't be able to cook in it because we will be eating off the dollar menu at Wendy's all month to pay for it.

The new part has a five year warranty not including labor. The whole entire microwave only had a one year warranty not including labor.

Tori, give 'em a TAD award please!

Just one thing more: Hear ye Hear Ye, Jean Knee is having a bathing suit issue showing that real bloggers like to swim too. Send me a photo of you sporting your freakieast swim suit pic.

F.I.R.S.T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jean Knee said...

yer supposed to read the actual post first

Brian o Vretanos said...

You could advertise your microwave on "Dan The People's Ebay" blog...

Or send the bill to Father Al. It's all his fault anyway.

Jean Knee said...

I like the second option, he'll probably act like he never heard of me

Brian o Vretanos said...

Actually, given the state of the Dollar at the moment, I could help you out. £5 should cover it.

Jean Knee said...

you don't think Father Al secretly works for GE do you? youch!

Brian o Vretanos said...

You should point out to Father Al that he got a Noble Prize, lots of money and glory out of his suggestion, and all you got was a bill for $189. You should point out that this isn't exactly fair.

Jean Knee said...

yes our currency is declining, lucky for us they're just printing more wink

Jean Knee said...

I think he gave that money to some tree huggers. frown

Brian o Vretanos said...

Printing more? That's bad for the environment.

bee said...

hey!!

bee said...

I was 11th! bwahahaha!

ok bye.

Brian o Vretanos said...

If he'd given the money to you then they wouldn't have had to print more and there'd more trees to hug.

11th!

Jean Knee said...

it's all on recycled Toilet paper, which is what it'll be worth when they flood the market with it

BEE'S SPIRIT said...

brian:
HA!!!

Brian o Vretanos said...

NOT FAIR!

If you're not really having the day off then you owe us a blog post!

And...

You were up at 4am being first on my blog when all the others were asleep.

Shocking behaviour!

Jean Knee said...

there's that fake Bee again, I wonder who that is?

Brian o Vretanos said...

I must admit, though your 11th was VERY neatly timed ;-)

Jean Knee said...

she's had practice

BEE'S SPIRIT said...

JEAN KNEE I'LL HAVE TO COME BACK AND READ YOUR POST CUZ RIGHT NOW I'M HIDING IN THE KITCHEN WITH SCARLET. SORRY ON THE CAPS THING...

Jean Knee said...

that caps thing happens to me all the time

Jean Knee said...

Brian took his marbles and went home, aren't you ashamed now?

Brian o Vretanos said...

She's shameless.

Jean Knee said...

duped

Brian o Vretanos said...

Time for the Emilia Hour. Back later.

Maddy said...

Sad to say, but these days more often than not it's simpler and cheaper to throw it away and buy a new one - what a slight on humanity, if not the purse.
Cheers

Brian o Vretanos said...

On the other hand, the Chinese people who are making all the cheap microwaves will be able to eat as a result...

Lisa said...

Hey, that's almost what I paid to get a light bulb changed this week! We could buy a family value meal and share if you lived closer.

GE Sucks!

Tori :) said...

DEFINITE Tad Award!! Ugh!!

Dan said...

I would never even think about fixing a microwave, aren't they like 80 bucks ?
Are you really a dog trainer ? do you have any dogs ?
I'm actually a dog bone maker
( I'm not in fashion ! )
Need any rawhides ?

Dan said...

what do I need to do to make my dog wash my car ? or plow the snow ?

Tracy said...

I'm going to tell you this story to try and make you feel better, or atleast laugh at us. Which may make you feel better in the long run.
A few weeks ago, we got a movie from Netflix, Mr. Brooks I think, and we were very excited about watching it. We stuck it in to the DVD player, geared up to watch this movie and 15 minutes in to the movie, it starts to freeze. We took the movie out, checked it for scratches, cleaned it, put it back in, it froze again. I said to my husband "I think that DVD player is on it's way out because there's nothing wrong with that disc!" My husband said "Well hell, then I'm throwing it out" and he did just that.
A few weeks later, while on our bulk fix at Costco, we picked up a new DVD player for $160.00
Finally we're going to get to watch Mr. Brooks. We put it in, same place the movie freezes up. Turned out that there was an "imperfection" in the disc causing it to freeze.
So, while your Father Al would frown on us for our wastefulness, he's smiling his way to the bank with your 189.00 check for fixing yours.
Be proud.

Jean Knee said...

that's right Lisa, they do. unfortuunately we have all GE appliances

Jean Knee said...

Dan, I always need rawhides

for the dogs I mean

Jean Knee said...

sorry about your misfortune Tracy, sounds like something I'd do

No Cool Story said...

On the plus side Father Al got mentioned, so that's always good.

No Cool Story said...

I went to Nordstrom Jean Knee and now I'm 37, you tell me how that's fair :(

No Cool Story said...

Talking about not fair: That repair service is Teh Sux, they should tell you up front all their charges.

No Cool Story said...

Melissa said...

You are a better person than I am... I would have tossed the darn thing and got a new one... Father Al has disowned me... twice...

Large Marge said...

No Cool Story said...

I just woke up jean Knee.

It's Saturday, I only sleep in on Saturdays :)

Brian o Vretanos said...

NCS:

Where do you sleep the rest of the week???

Jean Knee said...

don't tease her about her homelessness condition

that's mean

Bee said...

S.I.X.T.Y!!!!

No Cool Story said...

Brian: I guess it's sleep-in...as in "Today I slept-in, then took a nap and was not 1st or 11th on any posts..."

Besides I'm not homeless.
I have a cardboard box than you very much.

True, I had to fight off a couple of rats and a toothless hobo for it, but now I call it mine.
Problem?

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I feel sad today, jean knee. :(

Jean Knee said...

sad is not an option here

Bee said...

What did I miss!? Why is our Elastic sad??
No! We must do something!

Jean Knee said...

I poked her

Dapoppins said...

no dog in the front grill? How about the cat stuck in the back bumper!

Swimsuit contest? Hummm. The last picture of me in a swimsuit was taken when I was 12. All the rest were burned by the Nazis.
