What a week! It was busy at work, busy at home.
The Bag Lady thinks she may (finally) have a resolution regarding her washing machine. She received the unwelcome news from the repair company that the part they needed was still unavailable and they wouldn't have it until APRIL 4th!! The Bag Lady called them and complained, but they said it was the fault of the manufacturer. So the Bag Lady called the manufacturer, who told her that they did, indeed, have the part in stock, but that the repair company had not ordered it from them. Apparently, the technician ordered the part from a company called Reliable. Which, in the Bag Lady's humble opinion, isn't very!
The Bag Lady told the manufacturer that April was not acceptable, and asked the pleasant woman she was talking to for suggestions. The woman put her on hold and finally came back to tell her that the company was willing to send the part directly to the Bag Lady. Then she could call the repair company and they would send the technician out to install the new part. So the Bag Lady will (hopefully) have the part by the beginning of next week, and she sincerely hopes the technician will be available to complete the repair at that time.
Oh, and the Bag Lady finally asked the pleasant, helpful woman where their call centre was located, and was told they are in Tennessee. Lovely people, those Tennesseeans!
In other news, the Bag Lady had a nice surprise the other day when she stopped to check her lottery tickets. She won a whopping $80.90! Enough to buy another couple tickets and splurge on a nice lunch for herself and the Rancher.
Have a great weekend!
