YIPPEEEE Florida!

Hey all. I just got back from a business trip to Pensacola, FL. It was alright. Sort of boring but it's fine.

I returned on Thursday to find my stove had given up on me. The ungrateful bastard! All the meals I've cooked on that damn thing. All the baking and cleaning and love I gave that thing and it just gives out on me like that. Stupid ingrate. That's ok....I'm going to find a better one to replace him. One that will appreciate me and not leave me in a lurch when I have 40 hungry ass baby shower attendees to cook for. One that will give me years and years of faithful cooking and baking pleasure and not leave me at the slightest hint of irregularity.

I heard that GE and Whirlpool were pretty good catches. Strong, dependable and faithful.

Oh yeah..... he will miss me once he's in the scrap yard. I will go shopping for my new love on tomorrow.

Wish us luck!

We have a Jenn Air and it has been great! And I'm not even allowed to cook ('cept stovetop popcorn and boiling chicken)

Must be in the air, my washing machine gave up the ghost Friday...
paid over 900 for it and it didn't last even 5 good years.

Good luck finding a new and better replacement!

Get rid of him - quickly. Let him rust in peace!

LOL! Isn't it funny how stuff like that happens when you need to do something important?! Say, cook for 40 people?!

Best of luck with your new love!

Isn't that always the way things work? This was a really funny story about something that really isn't all that funny to begin with. See what a different perspective in our minds can make?

lol @ ungrateful bastard

It seems your stove hung in there as long as it could. Love the state of Florida. I used to live in Orlando. Never been to Pensacola before.

GE is the way to go! :)

The Ambiguous Blob said...

I envy people that have to buy new stoves for themselves when theirs break. Because it means they own a home. I don't see this happening for me... at least not where I live now.

I hope you hadn't cleaned it before it conked out. That's my biggest fear :)

Stoves and ranges are funny these days. They dont make them like they used to. Check out consumer reports and use your best judgement!!
