Waiting For The Repair Guy

It happened on Saturday morning. It stopped working. Augh.

I never realized how much we use our microwave. It’s been back to heating things up in a skillet, planning more in advance and realizing that dinner really shouldn’t come out of a box anyway.

The repair guy is scheduled sometime between 1pm and 5pm, which is another pet peeve of mine. Why is it that they need a 4 hour window? And why is it in this age of modern technology they can’t give me a call when they are on their way to my house? You know how much rearranging of my schedule I had to do to make sure I am home? Come on folks, get with it! Arm your service guys with phones so they can call on their way so we can get home to look pretty and answer the door. We’re busy. We have things to do. We have kids to pick up, kids to drop off, dance lessons, soccer practice, groceries to buy, errands to run. We can’t just dilly dally at your convenience and wait for you.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll tell my boss I’ll be coming into work sometime between 9am and 1pm. You think that would fly?


  1. I hate that too - same as when you buy new furniture or something...we have a bigger window than you have...anytime we get new furniture or appliances, the time frame is anytime after 7 am....depends how long they take up our way...we have had things dropped off nice and early at like 7:30 and other times not till 6:00 pm...so I totally understand the window and having to wait around for them!

  2. hahahahaha... I came over from the Johnston's blog and this cracked me up... boy wouldn't it be nice to be able to say oh I'll be there sometime between X and X :)


I love me some comments! Thanks for leaving me one.
