    OMG!! too funny!

    I'll tell you a Sears story that happened to DH & I about 10 years ago.

    We had bought a new Kenmore refigerator and at the tender age of 13 months the compressor died.

    Repairman told us not worry it was under warranty & it would take a week, as the compressor would be shipped from some other state.

    Well, a week went by- no compressor.

    Called and talked to the lady at the number they gave for me questions re: my repair, asked if the part was in and she said it would be 3-4 more days.

    I call again, 4 days later and the lady says "another couple of days".

    OK, Now I'm mad- I tell her that I don't know what the PROBLEM IS but this is ridiculous and that I am sick of living out of a cooler & we can't afford to keep eating out!!!

    She tells me to calm down, and then proceeds to ask me what the motor on a garage door has to do with eating out!!

    That's when I figured out what the PROBLEM WAS!! LOL

    I can only assume that there was an equally frustrated customer with a broken garage door who was unknowingly waiting for a compressor!
