One More Day
Sunday and its still snowing. I've always hated Winter - sure its pretty the first time it snows, but beyond that, this frosted wasteland has lost its charm and glamour. I'll have Spring now, please. Thankyouverymuch.
Sunday, and our hot water heater has yet to arrive, and I've gotten fairly good at estimating how far one round of boiled water will go. (For the record, its 1/4 of a bath, or 1/2 sink of dishes)
Dear Sears, fuck you.
I'm not one to anger easily when it comes to retail. Having been a slave to the retail grind for quite some time, I try to extend a little patience and courtesy to the poor souls of my ilk. My gripe is simply that over the course of three days, I was promised three times that delivery would be either today or tomorrow. They failed to mention that the plumbing company was closed for the holiday weekend. Three times. Dude! Number one rule of customer service. Don't promise something you can't deliver.
It could be far worse, of course. And for that, I am grateful. But I'll be immensely relieved when the hot water returneth.
In the meantime, there is a pile of dishes to wash, decorations to put away, and other hideous domestic tasks that make me cringe. Ahhh, life.
