'Member when I tole ya about all our breaking crap bad news?
Like my much beloved blender that I broke?
That I was using every day up until the unfortunate mishap?
I am pleased to announce that the replacement part was a mere $5.
Now, if I can just get the da!# part to come off so I can replace it with the new one,
I'll be back in blending biz-nis.
And something excruciatingly important--
the thorn in my side. The tool that makes most of my projects possible, but of course, I am talking about my beloved nail gun. . .
please note that I did not break it. It broke. I did not break it. Notice that I didn't say that about the blender.
I can't be blamed for everything, okay? (voice rises in pitch, runs off, slams door)
Anywho, the parts were super duper cheap. Like $1 cheap and I'm not playin'.
Had the parts shipped to the Daddy-o. Why? 'Cause if you live in my neighborhood, perhaps you've had a problem with shipping to this street name as well. You know what I'm talkin' about.
Got a call from the Daddy-o:
"Hey! Looks like I've got a package of O-rings and gaskets here for ya. And ya know what? I'm not giving you your parts until I get my dang nail gun back."
"You wanna play that way? Fine. Where do you wanna make the drop?"
Slowly now. . . slowly. . .
Please regard that I have paint on my butt. And I am now officially on a diet.
Aaahhh! Aren't these affordable fixes for seriously important house items such a relief?
And finally, the foremost, thee most paramount of all the fixes. . . the one that had me crying sweet, sweet tears of relief. . .
'member my poor TV?
I knew we hadn't done this. I knew it was a defect of some sort.
Just trust me. I knew.
Samsung dude agreed, too. And I am happy, nay, overjoyed, to report,
that the entire panel has been replaced.
And this is where the Samsung dude thought I was a complete moron for snapping pictures while he worked.
But I don't care, man! And this time we're getting TV armor on it so I don't have to watch and protect it for the rest of my/its life like a freak!
But what is important here, is. . . I have my TV back!
And I think I just tipped you off to what a big nerd I am.
p.s. I should have named one of my boys "Jean-Luc". That is all.
