Grrrr, today is a whingy one.
One you might all; be familiar with, but I need to get it off my chest!
Why can't you get things repaired anymore? I'm so sick of this disposable society!
Number One is my coffee machine. If you don't know, Ms Curlypops kindly gifted me her coffee machine she wasn't using anymore, in return for coffee whenever she visits, and not long after (and coincidentally after I descaled and cleaned it) the steamer stopped working. It took me ages, but I finally went here, one of 2 places in Melbourne that Sunbeam recommend to repair their machines. They glanced at my machine, then told it was too old to bother with (7yrs old, apparently), it would cost $99 to look at it, then $200-$300 to repair it. So I might as well buy a new machine for $189 (av price in the shops)
So I thought I'd tackle the next problem, the broken camera (the reason for no pics for this post, and iPhone shots lately. Good to note- Harvey Norman have your receipt on their computer, so don't spend hrs looking for receipt (like I did! I didn't find it either). yep, out of warranty. Yep, $99 to look at it. Yep, buy another one.
I heard somewhere recently things are made to last 12mths, then you're meant to buy a new one, that sucks! Granted I can't afford the repairs, but I also can't afford a new one. I would wait patiently if I knew it could get fixed!
Now I can't find the camera- maybe in the hast, I left it on the counter at the shop, I got it home and the child said 'oh, well, we need a new one anyway'! So now I have lost the memory card and rechargeable batteries.
Some days I shouldn't get out of bed......
(PS I've tried to add spaces into this post, not working well, sorry!)
