Thanks for the memo!

Found this classic clipped to my front door upon arriving home:


[Apartment complex name]

April 21, 2014


We will be entering your apartment sometime this week or the next one, to install new black appliances in your kitchen, we apologize that we don't have the exact day and time, please have everything removed from the refrigerator, stove and dishwasher.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Any questions please feel free to give us a call.


[Apartment complex management]

Let me get this straight. I'm supposed to take the ice cream out of the freezer every morning before leaving for work? Could we possibly pin down the date? Three calls later, the black appliances are not optional, but I can leave the food in the refrigerator for the installers to transfer to the new fridge. Any dishes left in the dishwasher must be clean for transfer into the new DW.

This is the craziest notice I've received in the ten years since Uncwy's auto insurance was cancelled. We won't even discuss punctuation!

At least the new appliances won't get lost in your all white kitchen any longer! I walk into mine and think, "Darn! Now where did that dishwasher get to?"

It is very hard to imagine the person composing that note and not thinking they would be hearing back very soon about it.

I suppose that's why they left the phone number.
