Fear the beard AHS and Sears!

image

The following took place while I was in the Netherlands the first week of November: refrigerators traded places between the kitchen and the garage. Reason: matching colors in the kitchen. Result: icemaker refused to disperse ice cubes, a very important ingredient when drinking bourbon (Jim or Jack, household names).

Called upon American Home Shield (we’re insured) and they instructed Sears to take care of the matter. Dutch readers; within minutes we move back to Dutch, hence, google who Sears, AHS or Jack and Jim are (Jill is innocent).

My complaint explains it all:

Complaint

After the service repairman checked out the door of the icemaker, he concluded it was hardwired (wires broken) and needed a new door @ $900 (excl. labor).

Not covered by AHS.

My wife (for crying out loud) repaired it for $2.95 by fixing the wires.

At least we want a refund of the $60 and truly, if we would have followed his advice, would have lost $1,000.00+ !

Pretty unprofessional.

I am looking forward to receiving your reaction.

Regards,

Jacobus Laanen

Yes, ice makers are not insured, no, we don’t understand this kind of advice, yes, I am proud that “my” Astrid fixed this, and yes, my first name is Jacobus and my 2nd is Peter. Reaction: nothing, zilch, nada, niente. Retweet this, forward it, publish it. My American friends; I will go back now to my regular program in Dutch. I am glad you joined us for a while.

Overigens, dat ‘fear the beard’ komt van de closer van de San Francisco Giants (de regerende wereldkampioen honkbal), Brian Wilson (nee, verwar het nou niet met de beroemde Beach Boy).

Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson led the National League in saves during the regular season with 48 and has five more during the postseason. AP

Ga me zo in het pak steken om een beetje met die baard bij te beunen, zo’n 96 kinderen vandaag in San Francisco en morgen plus minus 60 in Berkeley (het 9e jaar alweer).

Met al die onrust in de wereld weer wat tijd voor positieve energie; de Pieten en ik gaan weer een heleboel kinderen (en ouders) blij maken. En ouders die willen dat de kinderen door de Sint en aanhang gestraft worden komen bedrogen uit; opvoeden doe je zelf maar. Wij brengen zodanig vreugde dat iedereen ons als de ideale schoonzoons zien. Hoewel, volgens mij bestaat mijn gilde Pieten vandaag volledig uit vrouwen. Nou ja, als je haar maar goed zit.

Geniet er nog maar een keer van:

    Beste Sint,
    Veel plezier in deze dagen
    Vele kindjes die presentjes vragen
    Ga maar gauw de baard ombinden
    en veel genoegen met je pieten-vrinden
