What About the Warranty?

Arrgh! My watch band broke. Where was the receipt? Found it. Purchase date, April 22nd, of the current year. Warranty disclaimers had more holes than the Titanic.

Went to the place of purchase. They were more helpful, than expected; temporarily fixed the band, till the correct pins arrived by mail.

The worn-out vacuum bit the big one and went to dead appliance Valhalla.

Much to do before escaping for an extended weekend with friends. Did I mention the riding mower battery failed before mowing the lawn? It failed to hold a charge–four-years old. It’s been hard to keep ahead of the broken stuff lately.

  1. I don’t know what an extended warranty on my car would say, but it must be worth selling – since my car went out-of-warranty, I have received 18 ‘Final Notice’ letters offering me an extended warranty and 9 phone calls!! [the latest one was yesterday!] lol

  2. We oldsters know that stuff just doesn’t last like it used to…we have a chest freezer that has been living outside in Alaska for almost 40 years, and it’s still doing its job. I have no doubt that a freezer bought today would whine if it had to live outside, and if forced to do so, it certainly would not last 40 years!
