When things go wrong.

Last week was full of bad events. I was down with fever. Thereafter, our AC went of order. The mechanic told that its gas needs to be refilled. It took 3-4 days for AC to set in order. After that our portable TV went of order. A TV mechanic was summoned to set it right. Then add to our misery our home PC crashed due to virus infection. Computer Engineer was requested umpteen number of times to re-format the computer, however he took his own time to appear. I found that it is an uphill task to call so many different mechanics/engineers to set the equipments/gadgets in order. I wish if I could have learnt the art of repairing Air conditioner, TVs, Referigerators, Micro-wave ovens, Water-fileters, Computers and other such gadgets. Had I been knowing all this things, I would not have to call and plead with different mechanics/engineers and I would not have to depend on there whims and fancies and mercies. Alas! it is not so, I am dependent on so many such people and everytime any of my gadgets goes out of order, my telephone bill sours after making so many calls, my BP goes up and I feel restless till the much wanted 'mechanics' appear. God saves from these mechanics.


  1. Ack! These things see to konk out when most needed. For us, it was first the stove (the landlord has since delivered a new one, yayyy), and then on the hottest day of the year, it was the air-conditioner. I actually managed to fix that problem myself lol.


  2. Thanks for your comments, Karen.
