So the wife and I was supposed to go to a bar with some friends, but they backed out at the last second. We wound up just doing dinner ourselves. On the way home at around 9:00, I wanted to stop at home depot to get some stain for the cabin trim. While we are there, Kelly has to use the restroom and you have to walk thru the appliance section to get to them. While I am waiting on her, I start looking at some refrigerators. We had planned at some time in the not too distant future to buy a new one and take our old one to the cabin.
Kelly really wanted a French-door unit, in stainless, with a bottom drawer freezer. My only consideration was I wanted a Whirlpool (because its Made in USA, and its NOT
a GE). I was pretty much shocked at some of the prices. I'm talking $3000 and UP for a FRIDGE!
LG and Samsung are really proud of their stuff. Down at the end of the display, like a little lost puppy, was a solitary Whirlpool fridge. Exactly what we both wanted. I sashay down and I see the price is $1660. Hmmm. Then the old salesman comes up and talks to me, and says that they have a sale running that ends that day for an extra 10% off. Kelly comes out, looks it over and finds it more than acceptable, so we did the deal.
I stop in to buy a quart of stain, and accidentally wound up buying a fridge. I'm still not sure how that happened. I gotta stay out of Home Depot. This is getting expensive!
