Recipe for Disappointment

21 Jul


1 broken gas clothes dryer

1 automated appointment service

1 outsourced call center

4 phone calls

1 Friday afternoon

Take the product manual from the broken gas dryer in your basement and locate the toll free service number. Start with one phone call to the automated appointment scheduler. Make an appointment for that afternoon.  Wait three hours to rise. Add remaining phone calls to outsourced call center, one at a time, until frothy. Be sure to mix in a generous pinch of language barrier. Stir well.

Tasting Note: A side of bitter resentment makes a wonderful finishing touch.
