You may remember that early December I got a new job and a pay-raise to go with it. Well, couple of weeks, things at work move slowly sometimes, ago I was told that all the paper work was finally done. I would finally be getting my raise and also back-pay from the first of the year. So as soon as I heard that I did the necessary calculations and then went to Pictureline‘s website to start planning for the newest addition to my “glass” family; the coveted 105mm Nikor Micro lens. Alas, my dear wife also started doing calculations as well, and determined that a new dishwasher was in order. But, but, but…. 🙁 I am never going to get that lens.
But we really did “need” a new dishwasher. So I collapsed to the overwhelming pressure of the responsibility of being a husband and father. After doing some shopping around we found a good deal on a dishwasher. I even went and measured the old dishwasher everything was going to be wonderful.
The day of delivery came and the great unboxing was upon us. I removed the old dishwasher and checked the connections. Connected the new washing machine. Started pushing in the new one and… Wait what.. Why did it stop?? What the #@@%^ it can’t be too tall, oh wait it is. 🙁
The previous owners had put new tile into the kitchen and gone around the cabinets. Perfectly, acceptable solution, except that it meant the cabinets were now 3/4 of an inch shorter than standard. And don’t even ask me what I measured because I don’t know. I then spent all of my free time for the next three days either grinding and chiseling out tile, lath, and thinset, or being completely frustrated with how the whole @#!!# !@%@!##$ process was going.. because deep down in my heart I KNEW that the installation of a Nikon lens onto a Nikon camera would have only taken 3 seconds max. Oh well I guess clean dishes are worth something right????
