Oven, fridge and beetroot

While dutifully cleaning the inside of the oven door, the inner glass fell out of position. Replacement cost and service call, $262. It can stay dirty in future. I was slightly mollified by a gorgeous and extremely personable service man. However, he could not comfort me in the manner I would have liked.

I also asked the service bloke's opinion of our noisy and running too much fridge. It came with the apartment, so it would be six years old. He pulled it out, listened, felt the temperature of the compressor and explained in very succinct manner. It is fucked he said. So it looks like we will have to buy a new one in the next couple of years.

In two years, three calls for the dishwasher before we gave up and bought a new one. One call for the stove top, burnt wiring. Fridge is no good. One call for the oven. All appliances courtesy Central Equity and their subsidary Melbourne Inner City Management.

Pity they didn't make these things strong like our beetroot container which is a well over twenty year old ice cream container. Alas a crack has appeared in the lid of that too. Place is falling apart.
