Well the friendly A&E repair guy came and looked
at my garage door opener and could not believe that someone
had installed it the way they did. Hmmmm He asked me
who the heck did it and I told him a guy from out of
town from a garage door company. He laughed out
loud right to my face! He said" Well he did a half-ass
job of it and now your electric eye doesn’t sinc up
with it’s partner over there. Once that takes place you
are gonna have lots of trouble." I asked him if he could
just take the electric eye thing off there. NOPE not
possible. It works with it installed.
The whole thing
came off the rail it was stuck onto, and fell into
his hand. It had come dislodged when I took the snowblower
out of the garage. I touched it or something and it got
knocked out of place. HE said"It should have been mounted down
here on a block of wood away from the rail. I asked if he could
do it and he said.. all the electric wires had been measured and cut
and it would require him getting new parts and re-wiring the whole
thing. I said >>DO IT! Well that is not
covered by the maintenance agreement. WHY NOT??
It was HIS
MISTAKE..We went round and round.. it would cost more to replace
the electric stuff than it was worth, and I would have to pay..
I was shocked!!
SOOO he did his best to fix it and it works but GOD HELP
US if it gets knocked off again. I think I am going to use some good
old fashioned D U C T tape and make sure it stays there, when the
weather warms up. The story goes the rails are old, the door
is probably 40 years old and it needs replacing. NOT in our
lifetimes it won’t! It might get new paint this summer, but I am not
going to replace it. HE showed me how to program the opener
buttons on the outside of the door so that if it was closed I
could enter the code and access it or close it. AT the very
least we can use the door no matter what. UGHH.. It is clear to
me that some people are being hired to do jobs they just don’t
know anything about or are just barely getting by doing them.
The people at S***RS will be hearing from me!!
It won’t be pretty!!
On the mouse hunt.. the count now is 11 over there and I am
hunting on my own here and have not seen any yet. Put out plenty of
D CON today and am watching this place like crazy. I am
not afraid so much as startled by them and if one gets in
my way.. well
little fella!! We have never
had that problem before and hope to never have it! I still
can’t see why with so many cats over there..they have 6 indoor
cats.. they have any problems at all. I guess a cat has to
be hungry to catch a mouse and be a real killer. Those
cats are well fed and happy, so good luck.. all they want
to do is play with them and wear them out enough to
make them unconscious. The thought of that is too
sickening to me. I want them no where near my place
and dead in hurry if they get here. My gramma told
me quickest way to get rid of them is lots of traps
and lots of peanut butter and I have both!! Enough said!
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
PS. I added my friends list and if you are invited I
sure hope you will
be up long as it slows up my loading time a lot
and this old dial up I have won’t stand for that
it just freezes on me. CHECK IT OUT on the
right side of this page. THANKS!!
