While we were waiting for our new dishwasher we were washing dishes by hand and placing then in the dishwasher to dry. So the door was being opened and closed a lot. Well, on Halloween our dishwasher decided to rise from the dead, much to everyone's surprise No one even pressed start, we just heard it running later that night.
|When we discovered that it was working something along these lines occurred.|
The next day we got an e-mail from our landlord saying something along the lines of "Great news guys! Your new dishwasher will be here in a day or two!" with a follow up e-mail a day or so latter telling us that the new dishwasher was scheduled to go in the next day. Um..... right...
Well we all felt pretty sketchy accepting a new dishwasher when our old one was no longer broken but what were we going to do? The thing was already here and ready to go in and our dishwasher had broken once so who knows if it would do so again or not. We ended up e-mailing our landlord telling her about the Halloween happenstance and we were unsure on what grounds it had happened, and who knows if the dishwasher would fall apart again. So..... we didn't end up getting the new dishwasher, but our old one is still working so who knows.
The moral of this wonderful tale is that I'm thankful for a conscious that helps you out when you're tempted to do something wrong, even if it means that you don't get a new dishwasher and also for the relief that comes with a clear one. I'm also thankful for our dishwasher. Yeah it's old and junkey but hey, it's still functioning. And finally who can forget "Halloween Magic." It's a thing I guess. I mean who knew, I figured that was just a Christmas thing but hey, how silly of me to not believe. Halloween "miracles" (at least broken appliance related ones) do come true! The Great Pumpkin is out there guys!
