New fridge, which had been ordered by manufacturer as replacement of one that arrived in July and never worked, for tenants, who have lots of rubbish, FINALLY arrives.
Only problem is that it is delivered directly to the flat, but the old fridge, which is actually a new fridge but a not working new fridge, and older than the new new fridge, to us anyway, and so it is now henceforth called the old fridge, is still in there too. The room where both fridges sit would be considered on the small side for cat swinging possibilities and that is with just one fridge freezer present. With two, the cat wouldn't get a look in, and in fact one tenant will now be doing somersaults into his bedroom in order to work around the fridge. Not good.
"Please can you take it with you?" I say to the delivery drivers.
"Because we haven't been asked to."
"Please could you make a call and ask them to?"
"We can. But we know what the answer will be."
Call. Surprise, surprise. No reply.
"So what do we do now." I ask.
"There's nothing we can do." They say.
I ask if they will at least take the packaging with them, to which they concede. This reduces the bulk sufficiently to at least be able to swing the cats whiskers.
Tenant and I are left stunned at situation.
Would anyone like a secondhand non working fridge? It's yours for collection.
p.s. Will not be eating meatballs in Ikea for a long time.
p.p.s. I'm sure that some Whirlpool appliances are very good
