Or maybe I should. I have always held the belief that the biggest money issues arrive when you can't spend the money.
Case in point- I purchased a Kenmore Elite range about 3-4 years back, with the knowledge that I would be moving in the next 5 years (or at the time I had seriously hoped I would be moving). Today for breakfast I cooked pancakes and I broiled bacon. I do not fry bacon on the stove-ever; I will forgo hot scalding splatter thank you very much.
Every thing was going great. I decided to bake chicken nuggets for the kids lunch and I turned the oven on. Twenty minutes go by and I realized the darn thing hadn't heated at all. I turned it off and turned it on, listening for the classic "whoosh" I normally hear when it has ignited. Nothing. Must be the pilot right? It took me and my husband another 20 minutes to remember that this oven has an electric starter- no pilot light.
I started to set up service with Sears but didn't because they couldn't come out until Thursday and it would be $85 just to look at the problem. Finally tried Home Advisor, which I had done before and found an appliance repair person with excellent reviews and that worked on Sundays. I picked up the phone to call at 3:52 pm only to notice that their Sunday hours are 9-3 pm. Smacks forehead.
There goes the roasted chicken dinner, with rosemary potatoes and green beans I was going to make. I had even considered baking a cake. Instead I will have call the repair place first thing in the morning to set up service and brace myself for a possible $200 bill. I am so hoping its a lot less than that as the work should take no more than 1 hour but I rather assume the worse and be pleasantly surprised than to have a minor heart attack.
