Bah Humbug

The oven repair man just called me from my house to say he has to order the part for my oven.

"It should be here by Friday", he says.

"There will be another $85 service call and an additional $70 travel charge", he adds.

"Plus the cost of the part."

"I'll try to have your oven working for Christmas", he offers.

"Or I can lend you my turkey deep fryer."

Thanks, Oven Repairman.  Really.   I do know it's not your fault my oven stopped working 5 days before Christmas.

You're so lucky to get a new oven part for Christmas.
See, I try to look at the bright side. I try!

Maybe this is the Universe's way of telling you to have cereal and milk for Xmas dinner?

Wow...NOT good news.
I hope he gets it fixed, in the end, it will be worth the $$. Unless you are open for Chinese food?
Best of luck!
