Big Box Blues Update
When we last left our intrepid hero (or the guy who doesn’t save receipts), he was awash in the Big Box Blues. I figured I’d offer some resolution.
Turns out, after all the work to get the receipt to confirm our warranty, it didn’t matter, because we (and, I’m pretty sure you can read that as because I) didn’t get the change out of our pockets before we washed the clothes. The $1.60 in change stuck in the washing machine water pump was our fault, apparently. So, $136 later (or $134.40, if you count the money found in the pump), our washer works again.
Interesting thing, though. When you spend a dime buying a fancy-schmancy, high-tech Whirlpool Cabrio, you sort of expect it to be able to…you know…filter. any loose chage that might find its way into the drum. The Cabrio has a bit of a problem, methinks.
So much for technology.
