it's just been one of those weeks.
Well, this hard drive repair guy deal is so strange. He has a toll free # on his website (I have his cell #), so I tried that. It rang and rang and finally went to a recording that said if you are getting this message the best way to contact him is to text him on his cell. So, I did. He apparently has an iphone too, so I was able to see that about 30 minutes later he read the text. This morning I sent another text saying "can I get a reply, please?". It's been read and no reply. Good grief. How about just sending it back if he doesn't want to fix it? If he had been that hard to get a hold of initially I wouldn't have even sent it to him! I got his name and number from a computer repair shop. He called me right back. I sent him the drive and he got it the next day and emailed that he received it and that's the last from him. SO FRUSTRATING. Treating someone/anyone like that is just beyond my comprehension and understanding. How do you just completely ignore calls/emails/and texts? I would feel so completely rotten and guilty if I ever did that to someone I had agreed to do a job for, let alone any reason.
The overnighted dryer fuse and heating element arrived this morning. Of course neither of those fixed the problem. But, he wouldn't listen to me and take out the old one's first and do a multimeter test on them (still says he doesn't know how to use it) to see if that's what was bad. Then after he complained some more, I said "can't you just hook up that extra dryer we have?" He says "isn't that a washing machine?". No....it's a dryer! Rolling my eyes........We used that dryer at our previous house (left by owners) and not this dryer. He's the one who does 90% of the laundry - I'd think he'd know if he had 2 dryers or 2 washers. Then when we moved into the shop he decided to use our old dryer instead. Kinda like his memory when a few days ago he told me to start opening up a couple windows up stairs for a little while in the mornings - just to get some fresh air upstairs. So, yesterday morning he comes up to my office and asks me why I have the window cracked open.....
And all of a sudden, the past couple of weeks all his jeans are giving up and ripping out. Two ripped out last week, so on Monday, I ordered 2 new pair from Walmart (he wears Wranglers relaxed fit). Usually stuff ordered from Walmart gets here in about 3-4 days. Then this week another pair ripped out. Now he's down to 2 pair and no dryer to keep washing/drying those 2 pair...and of course the new ones I ordered are on the slow train to get here. They won't be here until next Monday. I'm going to order 2 more, since he lost 3.
Woke up to our power out this morning. Waited another 3 hours for it to come back on. Work delayed 2 hours since I couldn't get online.
It's cooled down 30 degrees and raining. I like it. So, at least there is that that is good.
