Store refused to exchange Microwave
Mel, my gorgeous wife, bought a new oven the other week. New super-duper stainless steel thing.
Here in the office yesterday the Microwave oven died. And the kettle started leaking. Must have been bad karma??
So Mel had the bright idea of bringing in the kettle and Microwave from home for the office. Which meant she could buy a new kettle (stainless steel) and microwave (stainless steel) to match the new oven.
So off she trotted to the local store tonight and purchased them.
The kettle was fine. He was plugged in and worked well.
Not so with the Microwave oven.
But not so with the Microwave oven. The one Mel was looking at in the store was stainless steel. But when she opened the box, the one she had been given was a metallic blue.
And that wasn’t going to match the oven.
Mel wasn’t happy!
Back in box. Back in the car. Back into the store. And in she marched.
But the guy at the store refused to swap the Microwave!
Mel was furious until he said this next bit:
“Ummmmm……just take the blue plastic protective cover off and you’ll find it is indeed stainless steel underneath.”
Mel snuck out of the store as sheepishly as possible, her face a crimson red!
When she returned home and told the boys and I what happened I think we gave a small smile (actually we all roared with laughter for about 5 minutes).
She unpacked the Microwave (again), peeled the blue plastic sheet off and was most delighted with her purchase.
God bless her – she gives me so much material!
