The joys of owning your own home
I love owning my own home. It IS one hundred percent better than having to rent and rely on a “landlord” to keep things up and running but it is also a double edge sword when things break between paydays.
Today I am thinking it sucks to be a homeowner.
Last night while I was cooking dinner my electric range developed a rather serious malfunction. The back left element would not turn off by using the switch even after I reset it several times. This is rather a HUGE fire hazard of left alone and I ended up having to pull my range away from the wall and unplug it from the wall socket. Holy CRAP it took a lot of strength to pull out the huge ass plug this thing has. Let me just say I had to use a lot of momentum to get the thing unplugged. I will not even discuss what I found under the range after I moved it. Funny though it was a freaking pharmacy under there with all the pills that were dropped and rolled under it.
Anyway I really digress due to my frustrations.
Well I had to do the research and figure out how to get this thing fixed. We are between paydays which means we have no money to schedule a repair. Next payday is Dec 24 because since normal payday of the 25 is Christmas the check will be deposited a day early..Oh joy. Well as it stands I will have to wait until after Christmas to get this sucker fixed and now do not have a working stove/oven because I can’t plug it in. I suppose I could risk it and plug it in, use it, unplug it every time I need it until I can get it fixed. But how safe is plugging it in only to keep unplugging it? Not to mention I will get really strong moving the range back and forth every time I have to mess its power needs.
Meanwhile how I am to make my famous meatballs for the Christmas dinner with NO FUCKING OVEN? Oh the holidays are so fun this year. Also I am going to have to cook by microwave until I can get my range fixed. I just want to feel sorry for myself and cry but I refuse to give into that helpless feeling. I actually have the urge to take apart the stove and look at its innards. I wanna see the guts and check out the switch. I need to start buying lottery tickets.
BBL I am gonna go tear apart my range. OH WHAT FUN IT IS! (OMG I feel a sudden rush of joy at the thought of taking apart my range. Is that sick or what?)
