Better Than Before

The bad news: the icemaker on our 7-year-old Samsung RS257 (superseded by the RS267) refrigerator malfunctioned and leaked all over the floor.

The good news: in 2008 we had renewed the Best Buy extended warranty, which covers parts and labor on the housecall. At $169 for three years it’s turned out to be a bargain.

Also good news: the Best-Buy repairman asked me to defrost the freezer before he returned for his second visit. I dumped nearly half the contents, most of which were unidentifiable.

I don’t welcome problems, but sometimes fixing them makes things better than they were before.

Defrosting one freezer makes the second one look not so hot.
