Life is funny

Not so much "Ha ha" funny, but funny none the less. We finally got a new washer to replace the old broken one. We went up to Nebraska Furniture and were just going to compare prices. Well we head back to the washers and dryers and on the way back, we see a washer that is marked down $100 due to a small dent in the top, AND it is also 10% off says the handy salesperson who saw us browsing. He also said that was the only thing wrong with it, so what a great deal right? So we were all like "Yay! Whoopee!!" So we bought it and my brother helped me get it into our apartment that night. I started to load clothes in it and noticed the basin was shifted to the left a little. I figured it was just off center and I pushed it over and loaded it with a small batch of clothes. It ran okay, but when I was unloading the clothes, I noticed the basin had shifted left again. I figured it was just from the weight of the load and how it settled. So I loaded another load and shifted it back to centerish and ran it. And in the middle of the first spin cycle I heard a loud THUMP THUMP THUMP. That's right. The salesman lied. Can you believe it? I was shocked as well. Good thing we bought the 3 yr. warranty on it that covers everything. But now I have to wait until Monday for the repair guy to come and fix it. No cost to me because of the warranty and all, but still, a pain in the astronomical buttocks.
See. Funny.

Aye, but the Pamphlet's would have probably fallen for the same ploy.

See if you can get an extra set of water hoses out of the deal. :)

I wouldn't say you had astronomical buttocks, perhaps just celestial...
