Got Problems?

GolfSpy STUDque

ADMIN EDIT - 8 November 2018:

Ah, the rant thread.  The perfect place to blow off steam.  I'm sure most members of the forum have stopped in from time to time to tell about a frustrating experience in their daily life and, judging by the post count, we've got a lot to complain about.  A thread like this is both good at bad. 

  • Good because we can individually make ourselves feel better by releasing tension
  • Bad because we're taking that negative energy and distributing it to the forum membership

 

The MyGolfSpy forum is founded on good-natured discussion and information sharing.  It's a place for support and positive energy.  A big reason we support and will continue to support non-golf topics is because it allows each of us to make a deeper connection with our fellow golf fanatics that we may or may not ever interact with in the real world.  These are opportunities for us to discover the human behind the nuts and bolts golf talk.  The rant thread is one of the few places of negativity within MyGolfSpy and it's time to change that for the better.  Does that mean it's being snuffed out? No.  This thread has a deep history in the forum with many many examples of people helping people.  It's not all bad; but when it is, it's pretty dark.

We think it's time for transition of this thread to a more positive atmosphere. This thread is now renamed to "Got Problems?" From this point forward, this thread will be a place where you can come to....rant about an issue you may be having; BUT ONLY IF you're seeking help from your fellow members.  This will no longer be the place to come to complain and moan about whatever may be troubling you if you're not interested in a solution.  Likewise, replies to these issue should be supportive in nature even if you don't have the solution.  This is not the argument thread and that negative energy has no place on this forum.  

 This thread can continue to be non-golf.  As we restructure the sub-forums (slowly), there will be increased support for non-golf topics that will be separate from the rest of the GOLF topics.  Those who come here for golf, can remain in the golf domain and those that come here for everything, can experience everything

Having a bad day or something is not quite right? Let it out here and you may or may not feel better. :D 

 

 

 

I had a buddy who just sent me a text asking if I wanted to play golf around 1:00 p.m. today. I had to tell him maybe, because my wife may have to go out of town and someone has to be home as the Samsung Repair man is coming.   :angry: 

 

We have one of those on the list where the washing machine lid could potentially blow off!   Anyways one of their service reps is coming out today to repair it.  The good thing is it's totally covered via Samsung as it should be.  No more of them washers for me as I have already had two previous issues with it.  One being under warranty and the last one being a stabilizer bar breaking which happen right after warranty had expired. :angry:

They do know how to time the warranty just right! I bought a new refrigerator that needed a new $550.00 part 2 days after the warranty expired. Fortunately, my brother is very versed in electrical things and he just rewired and bypassed the faulty part. It's been working for 3 years now. 

 

Why do I get the feeling I should have just kept my mouth shut? :rolleyes:

haha yea it seems the household necessities are programmed to crash after about two years.  They crash later than that if you have a one or two year extended warranty on top of the original warranty :angry: 

 

Heck I was watching the news one night and saw this about the Samsung washing machine lids exploding.   Glad I did because I would have shat all over myself if I was walking by the washing machine and the lid flew off! :o

Here's my rant.... playing golf again today! :D

I agree, not rant worthy :) my passive/aggressive rant - I'm on a bus for 5 hours, but then I'll be in Miami jumping on a cruise ship for the next 7 days after... And of course no golf while on the boat; life is tough... Lol

I see it all the time working for a metal recycling company. Some of the appliance guys or maintenance guys from the motels will drop off what appears to be a fairly new nice looking washer or dryer. I have had a couple of the guys explain to me about circuit boards and such and it costing more in parts and labor than a new machine will sell for. I know for a fact some of the higher end condos will take out a washer and dryer when the warranty expires and they will still be working.. I know several guys buy those machines and sell them and one of them knows several tricks on bypassing circuit boards and such. I am sorta scared of that thinking they may catch fire or something like that but then again my years as a volunteer fireman may make me paranoid

Hell,,,, years ago you could buy a Kenmore washer or dryer  and you couldn't break the damn things!  You could drag em behind your pick up truck and they would keep on ticking. They had the spindle doo hickie thing in the middle but that didn't bother me. Good quality USA products that were manufactured with pride. Hmmmm it's a shame that type craftsmanship is a by gone memory.

We bought an old Maytag washer and dryer that were 15 years old, and used them for 16 years and never had to have anything replaced or fixed, the only reason we don't have them now is because we downsized our large appliances and furniture when we came south

That's what I'm talking about...   Good old reliable stuff that runs like the energizer bunny. You're lucky to get 15 months out of this new stuff ....

That's because it's all made overseas... No pride in production, parts are cheaply made, of low quality.

Quite possibly, but also because no one wants to pay enough for well made appliances. Appliances now cost the same in $s as they did 20 years ago, so much cheaper when you take inflation into account.

 

Most consumer goods now are designed to fail after a reasonably short time. If things are too well made, companies lose future sales, and eventually go out of business by making too good a quality products.

I think that I need to fire our head custodian. I hate firing people but when you walk the campus and are unable to identify a single completed project begun over the past three months....it's time. :(

Going in tomorrow morning to have two more skin cancer's cut out.  One close to my right eye and one on the crown of my head. I've had two cut out in earlier years.   The good thing is they are basal cell carcinoma's which are no big deal, unless you let them go too long. My rant is my nose will be all swollen, my eye may be blacken and my Birthday is Tuesday. If we go out to eat, I'll be looking like a prize fighter who got the worst end of the fight.

Man what a way to spend your Birthday Ole Gray, unless the result is having Kelly Bo wait on you hand and foot all day, then that's not too bad  :D
