Too Much Information about fridges and freezers

Not my fridge, and not my door, but the picture made me smileThe door fell off the fridge this morning.

There I was, late for work, (hey – it’s Friday) putting the milk away, and suddenly the fridge door and two eggs are on the floor.

I can’t really complain about this particular fridge. I bought it in 1994 or so as the cheapest of all available fridges to use in the office. It lived there for a couple of years and then spent five or so years in the garage as a beer fridge; when I got it back it moved with me to a flat for a while and now it’s here.

When it came here I had to turn the fridge door around. Not a problem I thought. See – here are the fitting holes to put the handle on the other side. What I didn’t discover until it was Too Late was that though the door was handed, the the bracketty hinge-thing wasn’t. As a result the door has been a bit precarious ever since. I forgot this and filled it with wine. And eggs. With the results I am typing about now.

So I’m gonna get me a new fridge. For various reasons I won’t bore you with, this is going to involve a significant amount of scuttering around in that corner of the kitchen and a friend taking away the freezer. (What does a single bloke want with a full-size freezer? Pizzas, I suppose). I will end up with a nice new fridge-freezer and a gap under the counter where I can Put Things. What’s not so good is that I think I will find little mousey murder victims when I start moving everything around. We had a crop of flies last week, and there is definitely an Odd Smell in that corner.

Immune systems; use them or lose them.

At least the eggs weren’t off.

  1. Once my dear husband arrived home with an old used refrigerator in the back of his truck. We already had a very nice, and large, new fridge. When I inquired as to why we needed an extra refrigerator, he explained that he needed to lager beer. So maybe your single friend has a need like that?

  2. Good thought. Frozen margaritas, perhaps?
