They don't make things to last anymore!!!

I need a "homeboy repairman"!! Went to run the dishwasher this morning & I couldn't get the door to close. I tried everything I could think of but finally gave up & called the hotline thinking that I had the child lock on or something. After spending 20 mins pressing buttons I finally got to talk to a "real person"! Another 20 minutes before this so-called expert decided the latch was broken!. I explained the dishwasher was just about a year old & probably had been run a total of maybe 75 times!!!!!!! I was given a choice & 3 repair places to call along with an authorization number to get it fixed. I tried calling & not one of them answered the phone. At that point I pulled out my receipt which was dated Feb 21st, 2008 - more than a year - I called the store I bought it from. A very understanding sales person said he understood & gave me the number of their repair service. This phone call did not go as well as the "witch" person on the other end informed me:
1. They would not be able to come out until Tues!
2. It would be $69.99 for the service call, $35.00/30 mins for labor plus parts!
I'm sure I don't have to explain that at that point I had a "hissy" fit & was told if I hadn't have called the hotline they might have been able to work with me! Guess what they are not working with me!!!!
I went back to the hotline & after another 20 mins to get to a real person & 20 mins more of explaining that it was ridiculous that it wouldn't be covered under warranty.......... the average family would have used that dishwasher around 375 times!!! I ended up with another special authorization code but still had to find someone to fix it. I finally had one of the repair places answer the phone but still can't get anyone here until Tues!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
