    About one hour after I posted the great AMEX customer service message, oddly, coincidentally,
    SEARS said they could deliver a replacement Monday.

    I said no - I am in the office Monday.

    Then they said - we could deliver this SUNDAY!
    I said morning or afternoon - they said their computer will notify me of the time SAT night.
    I said I was agreeable to that.

    If I HAD NOT ESCALATED immediately from the salesperson on up, and then snapped on AMEX for clout, this would not be resolved.

    AMAZING how the wheels can turn faster if someone applies pressure.

    I now move up my scoring:

    AMEX - 10
    Sears - 5

    I also was able to DOUBLE the SEARS warranty at no charge because I put it on AMEX!

    later - the dishes are stacking up - Dogman :/

    Reminds me of an old Russian joke.

    A Soviet worker decides that he wants to own a car someday. The only car he can buy is the one model made by the one company in the USSR that makes cars.

    So he works and saves for 10 years until he has enough money to buy the car. He goes down to the factory to buy his.

    He sits down with the sales manager and hands him his basket of money. The manager gives him a receipt, and flips open a large black appointment book, flips a few pages and makes a note.

    "Congradulations!", he tells the buyer. "Your new car will be ready October 11, 1985."

    "But thats 13 years from now!" complains the buyer.

    "Sorry", replies the manager. "That is when it will be ready to pick up".

    "Will that be in the morning or in the afternoon?" asked the buyer.

    Stumped, the manager says "That's 13 years from now. What does it matter?!?"

    "Because that is the day my plumber is scheduled to show up."

    This was a disappointing thread. I was going to call Sears to take advantage of their new service.

    It's been cloudy here all day...

    this was in the San Francisco Chronicle.

    A car was illegally parked in a very busy part of San
    Francisco. This was in the morning, the car risked being towed - the unusual thing about this car was that it had an ACCORDIAN in the back seat!

    Normally, in North Beach that car would have been towed in 10 minutes.

    The reporter went by the same place in North Beach that afternoon and the car was still there - BUT - the BACK WINDOW HAD BEEN SMASHED IN!
    He looked in the car and someone had thrown a 2nd ACCORDIAN into the car right next to the 1st ACCORDIAN!!!

    Can you imagine the bad luck, to come back to your car and find 2 ACCORDIANS???? ?_ :)))

    Sunday - tomorrow - 2 - 4 PM PST...

    is when the SEARS computer just announced it would
    deliver dishwasher #2 and pickup dishwasher #1!

    I went to TV dinners......
    I thought the ACCORDIAN STORY was hilarious - definitely OFF-HOOK!
