Herb, It's Not Funny Anymore

And we begin month four of having paid for a dishwasher but not having a dishwasher.

I called Danby yesterday to ask what was going on, since a couple of weeks ago they promised to send me a new dishwasher and they even called Herb's Refrigeration for me and told him what he needed to send in so they could send me a new dishwasher. Shelli at Danby just called me back. She had called Herb. Herb "promised to send in the sticker today." So Herb has been sitting there for two weeks doing nothing while I depended on him to get me my dishwasher back. It makes me look back on the other long delays in this process in a different light. How long did he wait before making the original parts order, and before sending in the paperwork they sent him?

Shelli says that if they don't get the sticker by Monday, "we'll have to go a different route" which will mean getting her manager involved. All I could do is sigh listlessly and thank her.

On a happier note, here's a Nutmeg update: She no longer wants to be a "clown that is not very funny" for Halloween. After briefly desiring to be a dog, then a car, then a pumpkin (this last one did not last through our two-hour trip to Target), she now wants to be a choo choo train. Seamstresses are standing by to see if this will be ratified by the full Nutmeg assembly into a final costume choice.

Ack! I hate checking up on things that are supposed to get done and never do. I never have time to keep checking and I would not be very nice about it if I did have time to call. I hope you get your dishwasher soon!

Again, I have to comment on your super-human power of Patience.

Just HOW do you do it? You should go on the road with those mad-skillz
