Many times I've performed some extensive testing on fridges, using all sorts of technical tools, applying all kinds of appliantological wizardry while espousing jargon that would make Stephen Hawking blush, just to be foiled by the simplest things. Last week was a prime example. After conquering a problem several other companies weren't able to accomplish, it took me an embarrassingly long period of time to put the shelves back in the fridge. I always take them out and set them aside in order. This time, after going to my truck for a tool, the customer decided this was the best time to wash and disassemble all of the shelves. Didn't have the Product manual with me, did not take any pictures before I removed them, nor could I find a tool in my fancy bag that could help....and I dug really deep.

Like trying to solve some overgrown Rubic's cube from hell, the customer and I moved, rotated, spun, flipped and twirled an endless array of shelves, baskets, escutcheons, brackets, axles, master cylinders and whatchamacallits for seemingly hours. Then... finally! uh.. well....no...not that we finally figured it out, but finally settled on a workable solution.

The simple things. The next person to tell me to enjoy the simple things in life may receive a few simple four letter words.

ps but then again I was never good at geometry and could never understand peoples problem with the square hole round peg thing.
