In July of 2007, I talked about how our washing machine broke and I called H&S Appliance Repair to fix it. Well, our dryer broke, so looked back at the LJ to remember who I called last time (since I was happy with their work), and made an appointment with them again.

They showed up this morning, and the "older man" Charles that I mentioned last time was the same one that came again, this time with an even older man rather than a younger one. He looked at least 70. So they went to town on that thing, and explained to me what they were doing and why throughout. The older one saw the idler and said it's a piece of crap, something like "They coulda spent a nickel more and put one on there that's actually worth a damn!" This guy was furious at my dryer manufacturer. And it sounds funny now, but I couldn't laugh. I understand.

I love seeing people that know exactly what they're doing do their jobs. It's inspiring. That old man has probably been fixing dryers for at least 40 years. Once again, I'm pleased that I spent $117 instead of attempting to fix it myself. Those guys deserve my business, and I will call them again.
