The heat on our dryer went out last night. That’s the bad news.
The good news was that it happened on Mr. Hoagie’s wet shirts, so I didn’t need to spend four days convincing him that the dryer really was broken, and it wasn’t just “user error.” (Sometimes it’s really rough being married to an engineer.)
The good news? We managed to get a repairman in today.
Bad news? I’ve been waiting since 8:00 am. He showed up at 3:00 pm.
More bad news? He wanted $321 to fix it. We’ve paid twice that in repairs over the last 8 years.
Still more bad news? It’ll take 10 days to get the parts in. Ten days without a dryer.
Called Mr. Hoagie at work to fill him in. Passed him off to the repairman when he had questions (he’s gotta hear it from the horse’s mouth or he cross-examines ME).
We were on the fence over whether to repair or replace. Ten days until repair put it over the top for me.
So…who out there has a clothes dryer they’re happy with? We have a $65 off coupon at Sears.
