I blog because I must.

A new week--another need for a replacement appliance. Our dishwasher had to be replaced this week (10 years old) so off I went to Lowes to make it happen. Today the installers came. If I hadn't taken a picture, no one would have believed me. "2BK Services" (To Be Kind)--I didn't make this up. Beverly and Betty show up. . . .two hefty women wearing matching outfits complete with colorful headscarves. I rounded the corner to find them both on the floor working. It was too good to pass up. . .I HAD to post. Those ladies ripped that old dishwasher out like it was a nothin' and drug it out to their truck. Installed the new one in under 1/2 hour all the while calling me "ma'am and sweetheart". I did my best to keep a straight face. LOVED THEM. They work for Lowes, people. They're real.

And here we are----the new dishwasher. Isn't she pretty?

I'm srsly considering having something in my house replaced....JUST so those "ladies" can come visit my house.

I had a dishwasher breakdown and my repair man was a completely different experience. He shushed me one too many times. He would never make it as a door greeter at Walmart.

They look so adorable, laying there side by side. Did they know you were taking that picture, or did you silence your camera phone? If I lived in Bako, I would request those lovely ladies for all my home deliveries. I'm terrified of delivery men.

I opted for the repair option for my washer today and from what John said (I went to lunch with my fabulous 7th grader because of her most wonderfulest report card ever)"Dave" our repairman was kind, and fast but kind of a "crack up" if you know what I mean. Maybe B & B could go into the repair biz to save us stay-at-home-moms from all the exposure to crack !

GP, Jonesy. There is no crack there cuz those are the highest waisted jeans I've seen in a long time.

Did you ask how they felt about Prop 8, by chance?

You & your new appliances. I'm gettin' jealous!
