Some of my longtime readers might remember the problem I had with the ice-accretion in the freezer in the kitchen at work. Several of you offered solutions that ranged from stern warnings to actions that might involve having to hide a body. I decided to replace the refrigerator. It’s a long and complicated story, but since I am not a skilled-enough writer to make buying appliances sound interesting, I won’t bore you.
Suffice it to say, late last Friday, two men from Home Depot delivered and installed a new refrigerator. On Monday morning, people started reloading water bottles, cans of soda, Half & Half, homemade soup and leftover pizza. They also began helping themselves to chilled water, ice cubes and crushed ice, delivered from the door – yes, the door – no more ice in the freezer!
About an hour and a half later, we were told that the installers had warned us not to drink the water or use the initial supply of ice. They said that the lines should be cleared by running water and making several batches of ice…oops.
“Thanks for cleaning the water lines for us!”
