    Our ceiling holes in the living room that K accidentally created are FINALLY getting fixed tomorrow! Hallelujah. Can't wait to not have plastic sheeting and duct tape on the ceiling!

    I’m so impressed. Once he paints the ceiling tomorrow you would never know K is not allowed in the attic ever again.

    This was probably the 5th or 6th time he’s been up there, and to be totally fair he did used to run network cable like this for a job. He just got overheated and slipped. He readily agreed that we will pay people for all future attic ventures.

    Aaaaaaaaaaand I just ordered our new fridge!! It’s the fanciest fridge I’ve ever had, I am SO EXCITED!!!! Moving the old one into the garage for a beer fridge/extra freezer space.

    Garage fridge is the best.

    Oh I forgot the important part.

    New fridge has a “pizza pocket” (official term per Whirlpool) to stand frozen pizzas upright in the freezer.

    So I now understand why it was $1000 cheaper to go with this fridge from the outlet store.

    They lied about its condition. I just had to reject the delivery because it not only had a huge dent in the door that wasn't listed or pictured, it was also missing almost all of the shelves. UGH.

    So like, I guess $1000 more for Best Buy? Fuck.

    That's so shady that they didn't disclose that!

    The delivery guys told me this "happens all the time" with online sales, since they're not tied to a salesperson, no one double checks the listing or anything before they're sent out on the truck. The delivery guys were who insisted I reject it, so kudos to them.

    Do you think you may have gotten the wrong one then? Or the one you bought was misrepresented? I wonder if its worth waiting until Labor day and seeing if there are any good sales?

    No the store only had one, there’s no way I can see that it wasn’t misrepresented.

    Costco has it right now for about $500 off retail so unless anywhere would run a Labor Day sale for less than that on that exact fridge (which I doubt) I think Costco will be the way to go.

    Still works out to be about $1100 more than this would have been, which is painful but at least it’ll be brand new.

    Ouch but at least you won’t have to worry about Costco, they’ll take it back if anything is wrong no problem.

    And silver lining #2: under warranty.

    It did come with a warranty and I was gonna pay for an extra SquareTrade couple years but. Yeah, I am definitely glad to be getting a brand new one.
