A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

DENT BE GONE


Yes, I had let my new refrigerator door go while stocking its shelves, and it hit the side of the unit so hard that it creased the front of the door.

But despite being told to live with it, I marched into Lowe's and told them the truth.

This is what I didn't know. The appliance specialist said the delivery man most likely had neglected to put the stop on the door when he reversed the handle. And he was right.

That was Saturday. Sunday, I had a new door. The Lowe's fix-it man also said the bottom piece covering the wheels was cracked, and they would replace that too.

I've got to say, you all were right! Squeaky wheel gets the grease, and Lowe's hears the squeak better than most big home-improvement stores!

Now you need to share some fun fridge magnets/slogans with us or ask us to suggest some (similiar to car bumper stickers)i.e." my karma ate my dogma" or "my pit bull can beat up your chihuahua" or "save a tree, eat a beaver" ...

My daughter noticed a dent in the door of her newly installed refrigerator after the installers had left. She had purchased all of her kitchen appliances for her new home also from Lowe's. No problem, new door the very next day. I think that Lowe's rates high in speedy customer service. Love your new fridge, looks pretty big though for just you and Spud.
