Being an adult is expensive!

Postby LePaul » June 2nd, 2016, 9:43 am

It seems every time I have a little money put aside for the 'new printer fund', something happens.

This week, it is my refrigerator. Over the past few weeks, I noticed a 'clunk' sound when the compressor stopped. I pulled the refrigerator out, made sure all vents were clear...not pet hair or anything in the way. No...all clean.

Just a 17 year refrigerator reminding me that it's final days are near.

I really miss just spending money carelessly :lol: :-P

Oh no! Mine was leaking water a few years ago...it turned out to be a clog in the drain in the machine itself, which was an easy fix.

I really need a wealthy woman to support my crazy hobbies :)

My washing machine door lock broke, and considering it had lasted 15 years, I did not complain. Until I found out what it would cost to repair. The engineer wanted 135 monies just to show his face, never mind the parts. So I gulped, bought the lock for almost 90 monies and repaired the thing myself. Then for some damn fool reason the kids want feeding as well. Every day! Madness.
