Finally--The Sears Saga Ends

A few days ago I received a call from a manager at our local Sears store. He was very apologetic for all that's happened with our rototiller and told me that they'd decided to just replace our unit with a new tiller. I was a bit hestitant because that means we're once again tied to Sears if there's any problems, but I'm hoping this new tiller will work and we won't ever have to deal with Sears again.

Of course, when we went to pick up the new tiller we waited for over 30 minutes for them to get all the paperwork finished. If we hadn't been starving it probably wouldn't have been a big deal, but 30 minutes is a long wait. While we waited we looked over refrigerators, stoves, and exercise equipment all the while chanting our mantra that we'll never again buy from Sears.

This last store manager was a nice guy and worked hard to please us, but I will still never buy from Sears. I'm just glad it's over and done with and hope that we can get our garden spot tilled and planted and never have to think about the tiller problems again.

On a side note, the vehicle that our kids drive lost its engine. Cool. That on top of our van breaking down and my husband spending the better part of Saturday trying to fix the van to no avail. Oh, and we still have that April 15th deadline hanging lower and lower over our heads.

And how was your weekend?

Glad you got the tiller resolved. Hope it works out for you.

And that April 15th deadline? Thanks for the reminder. I gotta' get that done soon.

If you want to come to Virginia I have a great repair guy.
But otherwise I'll just wish you good luck.
When it rains it pours, huh?

I will heed your warning about Sears, though, thankfully, there isn't one near our house. I hope your week shapes up better than your weekend.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I was hesitant to make the post, but felt compelled.

Have a great day.
