10.10.10 has got to be the cause of it
Ok so it is the 10th day of the 10th Month in the 10th year of this century. i.e 10:10:10.. so how did I know? well I was filling in the on line warrenty for the new fridge... Oh this fridge.. Has been the subject of a post and now it gets better so it is worthy of a blog in my opinion.
The just less than a year old Zanussi fridge door gives problems.. so we call Currys and they send out a man that knows how to fix it! well he says it needs a new door and he will order it. Two appointments and a few weeks later still no door. We then contact Zanussi that says..sorry no doors in the United Kingdom:Angry:
But we can have an uplift code.. what is an uplift code? it tells Currys we can have a new fridge because the item is less than 12 months old.... great.. the new fridge is £86 more.. we have to pay for this.
Now Mrs Boss decides to go an see what Currys has to offer...two smaller fridges (now note this word smaller .. it is important in a moment).. two smaller fridges are same price as the broken one, but to get the same size it costs extra.. note again I said same size.
Today the fridge arrives (paid extra for a Sunday delivery).. checked the old serial number to make sure they are not getting a duff fridge but the one with the broken door.. that is what they have.. so they unpack the new fridge and try to put it in the hole where the other one came from....
Now this is where the word smaller and same size comes in.....
Yes new fridge is bigger than the hole it has to go into. Fitted kitchen... the old fridge fitted with room to spare each size.
So the usual domestic conversation starts.. did you not measure it I ask? no the man said it was the same as the old one she says.
Poppycock... it is not going to fit in that hole and yes I was right.. half in and half out of the hole. Who ever put the kitchen in has the cupboards at the wrong angles it in narrower by 1/2" at the back than the front. Wonkie wall I expect or a duff fitter
Two hours later, with the power saw and the electric drill and we have a part of the carcass of the kitchen cupboard beside the hole for the fridge removed... big hole if you must know.
It now fits, I hope it lasts a long time as I would hate to have to get it back out of the hole... I had to rewire the socket and move it up as the fitted plug would not go in the plug socket.. a five minute job 3 hours later.
Even the workmen get more cups of tea than I did.
So the 10:10:10 must have something to do with it all..Oh yes do not let women near a tape measure.. or should I say make them learn to use it or go to the store yourself... At least I can blame Sue for it this time..10:10:10:100%.:Rofl1:
