Now I hate waitin' round like a bump on a log.

There are lots of goofy ads on radio and TV for ARS Service Express (like the cowboy ditty in the title), and how they almost never show up late. In fact, they call themselves the "on-time repair guys". My window of waiting was from 9 to 11 AM. The guy shows up at 2:15.

The refrigerator stopped running Saturday night... (guess we can stop chasing it...nyuk nyuk), and ARS was able to come Monday whereas Sears couldn't come until Tuesday. The hilarious part is that the refrigerator is still broken. It was the compressor, which should be still under warranty but we have to get it fixed only by certain companies, ARS not being one of them, and Sears, ironically, probably IS one of them since it's a Frigidaire. (Not even sure any more who is still willing to mess with Frigidaire.)

Well, forget Sears... somebody else is scheduled to come out Friday, and we bought a little beer-sized fridge to tide us over. So we are out the cost of that, and ARS' $100. He DID fix the gas leak in the stove, however, so I think it was well worth it. Plus we are supposed to get a check back for $50 because they were late.

Just after I read this, I went to put something in the dryer and guess what? It seized and smelled of burning. I called the repair service (Sears) and the first available repaie appointment is a week from today. But a broken refigerator is worse! Good luck!
