Sounds like the fiasco we've just had with our 3 year old fridge. It up and died on us one day and it took Sears a fucking week to come and spend 15 minutes replacing the relay. Could have been worse, I guess, but it was a nice anniversary present to be able to have fresh produce in the house again.

And my repairman wasn't the least bit red. No offending ass-cleavage, either.

Uncle Bob, why don't you just have whoever is bringing your mother in law from the repair shop to your house bring her home instead ? Then you can offer to pick her up at home later on... sure you'd have to spend time in the car... but it's better than the whole day.

Here's what you do, you set up a schedule of activities for you, Andrew and your MIL you could have storytime and videos, nap hour, a drive in the country...

Sike, Just kidding.

You'll be aight playa, what's the worst that can happen? You'll lose 4 to 5 years off of your life and go prematurely bald. No wait, that's already happened, so um nevermind.

UB: you have an all day babysitter for friday! Who says you have to be home too? Let her know something came up and go screw off for the day! What time do the titty bars open up?

So what's worse: A) Root Canal B) Mother-in-law or C) Broken washer?

Just leave the friggin house man!She's there... she can watch the kid and you can go gallavanting around town!

Just so you know that there IS someone out there who knows how hard it is to be you... I had my washer break, right in the middle of Hurricane Ivan, so I have 14" of water in my basement, and my 10 loads of wash are floating in the basement. When the water finally receded, the Sears guy came out, tinkered with the washer about 5 minutes, put the hose back on it (right, the hose came off) and then charged me $105. Can you believe it? UGH.

Well, I won't give you any advice, but I will give you my condolences. UB--I'll be thinking of you Friday. Good luck.
Uncle Bob - 2004-10-05 12:15:40
I guess I should clarify a few things ... my brother-in-law will be bringing Grandma to the house at 8 am before he has to go to work because her car won't be ready by Friday. Second ... Andrew will be in daycare all day Friday leaving Grandma and I literally by ourselves. Or at least he is supposed to be in daycare all day. Suggestions of keeping him OUT of daycare that day are currently rocking my world.

Beef up on the Benedryl. The few hours that you would be awake would be a haze, it's like revisiting your early 20's!

A new washer, eh? Look into the Fisher & Paykel brand! They spin so fast that your clothes are half-dry when you take them out, and the dryer can do its work in no time.
warcrygirl - 2004-10-05 13:08:28
You can walk around in your drawers if you don't keep Andrew out of daycare that day. Maybe she'll get disgusted and go to the mall or something.

Thank god I don't get along with my mom, Hubby will never have to entertain her and if he pisses her off, who cares?

Sears customer service sucks big green donkey dicks.

dont you have dental work or shopping you have to on friday?
ScottyP - 2004-10-05 20:01:53
Same thing happened to my washer, UB. Of course, it IS from 1968 and lasted 36 years before it crapped out. But I just moved into this house and used it for 1 month before it went.
cosmicrayola - 2004-10-05 20:21:27
Here's what you do. You send Andrew off to school and then take grandma out to brunch. You spend most of the time eating so conversation won't be a problem. Then you ask her to go with you to shop for something nice for Suzy. You tell her you feel all bad about the washer and want to make her feel better. While she shops, she won't be conversing. Women don't talk to men when they shop. Unwritten law. By the time you finally agree on an inexpensive gift it will be time to pick up Andrew. Your no worse for wear and because you sprung for brunch, she thinks you are simply wonderful. It's either that or you could crawl up behind her, throw a pillowcase over her heac, tie her up and stick her in the closet. When you let her aout in about 6 hours you convince her it was burglars.

Now UB, I know you've said before you aren't the best at being Joe-Fix-It, but give the washer a try. Ours went out recently. I found a shop in town that sells all sorts of appliance repair stuff (My town is about 40,000, yours is much higher if I remember right). Bought a belt for $25 and ripped the washing maching apart in the garage & figured out how to replace the belt. Wife's parents happened to be in town visiting & had already bought us a new washer, so I sold the newly belted one for $75 and was up $50

Sounds almost as good as the car battery charger I got from my husband last Christmas. Hope you're not counting on having sex anytime in the near future. Men never learn.
