Well, because it is 12:04 AM EST, it is officially Valentine’s Day up in here.
Normally, I am all about a special holiday, but I just can’t bring myself to get excited because my sweetheart isn’t here to share in the Valentine hoop-la with me, so yeah, there’s that.
Still, I am counting on this day-of-love to be a great one.
Do you know what I would LOVE more than anything on this Valentine’s Day?
I would absolutely LOVE it – if Sears would send a repairman to my house today who could actually repair our new fancy front-loading washer (which we’ve had all of three months, mind you!) and ensure that it will no longer SPEW WATER ALL OVER OUR BASEMENT FLOOR.
The first joker that Sears sent to our home to repair it (I sure wish I could remember his name) spent more time telling me 1. I’m probably using too much detergent, 2. Am I sure the detergent I’m using is HE, or 3. I’m probably using too much detergent, than he did actually attempting to repair the thing.
And here’s the thing. I have always filled the detergent dispenser to the “normal” wash line, just as the fancy “load-sensing” sensor instructs me to do, and always with the HE (highly-expensive) detergent.
So, either the repairman who didn’t really repair anything has no clue what he’s talking about, or the fine folks at Kenmore Elite have no idea that it only takes 2 teaspoons of detergent to run a load of laundry through their machines.
On the off chance that the Kenmore Elite folks have someone on staff whose job it is to scour the internet for the words Kenmore and Elite in blog posts, chat rooms, and reviews (Like my good friend at Suddenlink who found my blog and fixed our internet problem) I’d LOVE it if you’d drop me a line and let me know if the repairman is feeding me a line.
In addition to that, I’d like your word that this new fancy [read: expensive] appliance will be replaced in the event that a second repairman fails to find the problem.
So in case you missed that, I would LOVE to have my washer fixed once and for all today.
In the meantime, I’ll be counting down the hours until the LOVE of my life is back home with us.
