Wednesday, July 23rd:
Our washing machine was installed today! And the guy showed up ON TIME (with 15 minutes of the 6 hour window to spare)!
In Israel you must have a technician connect the washer in order for the warranty to be valid. I now know the reason; the technician is also a salesperson who brings all sorts of nifty add-ons with him, e.g., wheels to roll it around on, a magnet that magically prevents the minerals in the water from clogging up the motor, etc.
He left sale-less when Michael was done challenging him. That’ll teach this guy not to go up against a chemical engineer!
Esther Aaron was kind enough to invite me to join her and Daniella for a Wednesday afternoon Shuk shopping experience. It was nice as she knew which vendors had the correct shmittah hechshers.
