My Refrigerator’s Holiday Intuition: Because It Knows. It knows today is one of the worst days of the year to decide to simply quit working because it falls in The Holiday Window: a period of time where you are guaranteed to not even have a repair person answer the phone for the next three days.
That’s right. My house missed me so much while on vacation that it decided to throw me a little party.
And since today is “What the Frak Friday”, it concluded the very least it could do was provide me with blogging material while doing it.
Today was The Fridge’s day to shine.
It waited. Patiently.
It waited until I fully stocked up on groceries after two weeks of being away. Multiple gallons of milk. Yogurt. Eggs. Lots of meat. Fruit drawers packed to the brim.
Then, with no warning, no fanfare, it sprung its surprise on me.
This morning I reached into The Fridge and grabbed my son’s two Eggo’s – because that is what Mothers of the Year feed their kids for breakfast every day.
I found them. Completely thawed.
I kept a cool, level head (i.e. I nearly curled into a ball and cried while simultaneously cursing The Fridge).
I grabbed any groceries still remotely salvageable and raced over to my mother-in-laws to put them in her fridge.
CG confirmed the compressor was not turning on.
I called all but one repair place (whose reviews consistently mentioned how horrible they were).
I have yet to talk to anything other than voice mail.
Because this is A Holiday. Before A Holiday Weekend.
Unless you work for CG’s employer who observes New Years on Monday.
Which does not help me in my fridge repair issue.
I’m going to have to buy a mini-fridge. Because I cannot be denied access to milk for two children under 4 years old.
I don’t even want to think of how I could buy a plane ticket with the money I just threw out in groceries.
How is it, that The Fridge not only knew I had just fully stocked it, but that it was A Holiday – cementing the evilness of its surprise gift???
Seriously… What the frak…?!?!
Have you had a “What the frak..?” moment lately?
