You've Got to be Kidding Me

You know our brand spanking new TV? The one that we finally got because our OTHER brand new TV was determined to malfunction?

Yep, it’s broken.

They delivered it last Monday. All was hunky dory. M flew home on Sunday - again, fine. But then when he got back from Brunei a couple of days later, the sonofabitch won’t turn on.

Sigh.

I guess to look at the bright side of things, M was able to resolve it with the store today, and they are going to come replace it on Friday. However...that model has now been discontinued, so we are getting a Samsung. And...the Samsung is more than the second TV. So this means that for our trouble, we have had to replace two TVs, and have paid more for each one than the last.

I blame Toshiba. Evil Toshiba.

oh no!

Now I am scared of buying one.

Seriously, what's up with the broken tvs around here?

I wonder...if they gave you a floor model or something. I hear that happens sometimes :( And then it's all burnt out/used, etc. Ugh.

I don't know about you, but one of the things I kind of miss about the states is feeling a bit more secure about major product purchases--like if the world ends, they will help make it better there. I'm not a big believer in warranties, but sometimes it's nice to know you'd have that option. Here, it's like "well, hope for the best!" lol.
