The Dishwasher Saga – should it really be this hard?

I’ve never really been a great fan of dishwashers.ย  We tend not to use that many dishes and I usually find it quicker and easier to wash them by hand anyway.ย  I also think it is a good discipline for the kids, to get involved with “washing the dishes”.

However, as a part of the rental agreement, we were assured that a new dishwasher would be installed. We were promised this would be done before we moved in… but here we are almost 3 months later and we still do not have a dishwasher.

This week… We Promise…

Over the last few months we’ve had various promises that it would be done “this week”, but of course that has not yet happened… Finally, this week we saw some progress, and were contacted by the handyman who was going to pick it up and install it.ย  It was apparently ordered some time ago, and should have been picked up and installed yesterday… but of course it was not ready.

The handyman did call and apologise, and arranged to do the work this morning at 0900… but now – at 0950, there us still no sign or news.

With a bit of luck the handyman’s arrival will be imminent, and I can update this post with good news that it is installed and running – but I am not holding my breath..

10:30… still no sign.. or news.
14:20.. still no dishwasher or news ๐Ÿ™
17:00.. no dishwasher… maybe another day/week ??

Monday: Got a call from the Handyman (Jake).ย  He apologised for not contacting me on Saturday… his dad had a heart attack.. ๐Ÿ™ Oops now I feel guilty for being grumpy -“Sorry” !!

Tuesday: Dishwasher installed and all good ๐Ÿ™‚
