When Appliances Attack

So just recently, I opened a letter in the mail.

It said:

Dear Gina,

We here at big multi-national corporation that may or may not own NBC just wanted to send you this friendly letter to let you know that your dishwasher may or may not catch on fire.

1500 people have already had their dishwashers from us explode in their kitchens, so we thought me might institute a wee bit of a recall.

We can either come and fix your 7 year old dish washer, or we can give you a $150.00 credit toward the purchase of a new one. From us, that is. No cheating and buying a product that has a much lower chance of blowing up your home. We've fixed the problem. Seriously.

Thank you,

Corporation Bent on World Domination

So this is exactly the type of letter I didn't need to see, especially since we literally took ALL weekend to find a replacement refrigerator. In 105 degree heat, of course, in a warehouse that lacked air conditioning.

It never ends, does it?

And, what the heck is going on with my template? I have done nothing to it. One day the graphics are missing, the next day the dividers. I just don't have enough hours in the day to deal.

New post over there, and later, a poll!
