Dammit!!! I talk about my fridge and my damn dishwasher just broke!

I can't win for losing I swear. I was just unloading the dishwasher (and was in fact praising it in my prior post) when the height adjuster (Plastic, of course) just snapped off with everything in the rack crashing to below!

It's only a $15 part, with ridiculous shipping of course, but at least I can fix it tomorrow.

I give up.

1. That's so irritating...

I just came from Advanced Auto Parts for some of those retainers for the inside trim panel of my car door. Took 2 different stops and 2 different kinds of retainers to finally fix it.
Three little plastic push pins- $4.63.
Getting my door panel fixed- priceless.

2. Were you fixing your window or replacing a speaker?

It seems like once you pull those off they're shot.

5. Nah, I had screwdriver in my back pocket...

I turned when the door was opened. The tip caught the door panel and pulled it off; and ripped my pocket off as well.
That's why it's so irritating. I wasn't working on the door. Just bad luck.

7. Are we related?

That seems to be the kind of crap that always happens to me. Last fall my wife and I were out somewhere. I stopped so she could run into a convenience store for some water for us. When she got out the door did that sort of half close thing, so I leaned over to pull it the rest of the way shut. I tore the whole side armrest/handle off in my hand! The hardest part was the interior was a somewhat rare interior color. I had a hell of a time tracking a replacement down.

The funny part was when she came back and found me sitting there with the whole assembly in my hands as I tried to explain to her it just came off in my hands.

It reminds me of this:

3. The appliances are equipped with listening devices, ya know.

The dishwasher is probably jealous of the refrigerator.

Be careful what you say in the kitchen.

4. How bizarre is this?

When I was researching refrigerators earlier I come across a link to Samsung urging me to buy a smart appliance, add it to social media, and friend it, I kid you not. I am told I can "chat" with it.

6. IoT is getting out of hand...

What could my fridge and I possibly need to talk about? Does it look around inside? Take a sniff, looking for spoiled food?
The fridge needs to stand there and quietly do it's job, not start an argument with me.

9. " Chatting with appliances " ?....creeping robotic influence.

See, I told you the dishwasher was jealous because you were paying too much attention to the refrigerator !

14. My wife and I go through between 4 to 5 pots a day

So yeah, it would be a real problem.

At least the coffee pot was hand assembled, has replaceable parts, and has a 15 year warranty.

15. Now that's a lot of coffee.

I only have two or three cups every morning, but they are mandatory.

I've had a cheap Mr. Coffee for years to backup my main unit.
