I purposely ordered a fridge without an ice/water dispenser because (A-) they always break first, and (B-) they take up valuable door space. Sadly, there was no option to delete the ice maker. I connected it since the line was already there and the damn thing died a few weeks out of warranty. They wanted $300+ to replace it. F that. One day I'll yank all the ice maker guts out and reclaim a little more freezer room.Best I can figure out is a valve broke somewhere in the ice maker and just let water pour out.
You must have angered the water witches...Yesterday was fun.
Get up, make coffee. Go to my home office. 5 minutes later I realize I must have left the tap on or something as I could hear one running after the current song ended on spotify.
Go to the kitchen.... water all over the floor. Leaking from the fridge. its coming from the freezer, fridge and the water connection in the back. Pull the fridge out..... turn the valve off at the wall. Push fridge to the sliding glass door in the dining room to get its leaking ass outside so I can start the clean up. Realize its too wide for the sliding door. Pushing it back through the dining room into the living room and out the front door. Now I have water everywhere. Wet dry vacuum and lots of towels later all the water is up off the wood floor.
Start taking everything out of the fridge and freezer and get the water out of the inside.
Best I can figure out is a valve broke somewhere in the ice maker and just let water pour out. Fridge is now back in the kitchen with water not hooked up and its doing fine.
Glad I was home.... in the space of a few minutes there was water everywhere. Could have been a whole lot worse.
After my 3 hour detour from work. Everything is going fine after putting it back. So I do a load of dishes in the dishwasher. Come out later for lunch........ water leaking from that friggen thing....... LMAO. All I could do was laugh. That one was just a clogged drain and an easy fix though. Glad I had the wet dry vac and towels out already.
I've had a Kenmore "Elite" Oasis Washer and Dryer set for probably about 14 years. In that time, I've replaced the control boards on both, the suspension springs and tub bearings on the washer and the drive belt and rollers on the dryer. On the one hand, that feels like a good bit of work to have to do on a washer and dryer when we don't have kids, so it's not like they're running every day. On the other hand......at least I was able to replace that stuff fairly easily and MUCH more inexpensively than paying someone else to do it or buying a new washer and dryer and I learned how to do all of it thanks to YouTube.
Common courtesy. When you are checking out at a register and there are people behind you and you wait until everything is bagged and the total is flashing on the screen before you even to begin to get your wallet out. It is absolutely unbelievable how clueless folks are. Imagine if as they are bagging the groceries or whatever, you already had your card or cash out and ready to go. F'n magic right there!
Next up is people that do not use cruiser control or move out of the left lane. I guess being in eastern NC really can drive you batty.
Or the folks in the 100k self driving rocket ships that still have no turn signals and get auto accelerated from a stoplight by fully loaded semi trucks.
Or how about NCDOT working at the absolute busiest time of day or busiest day of the week, when they have data that specifically shows how much traffic will be coming through. And there are 24 hours in a day. Work at night. Once again MAGIC. And the 10 people guys standing around watching the 1 guy work.
Back to the regular rants.
Wooo, Much better.
The amount time over 3 and 4 people is crazy. This is one of the main reasons I shop online.I worked at a health food store as a clerk for several years, so you can imagine the sorts of entitled behavior I've witnessed from customers. I don't disagree with you. That said - how much time do you think nitpicky grandpa has truly added to the transaction by waiting to whip his wallet out?
Oh, don't worry, you still get a "my pleasure!" at the end of the transactionThat right there is what can happen when somebody stops bitching and starts doing! Technology to the rescue...but one day we’ll probably forget how to interact with other humans. I know a few of us who are looking forward to that day.
