Best Buy Stole My Pants!

Yesterday Best Buy delivered our new washing machine (and dryer!)to our house. They now stand in our basement like a pair of ominous eyes. I'm not used to the front loading washers, and frankly this one scares me! I'm hoping they'll use up less electricity than the old ones. Our electric bill has been mighty high lately.

Yeah, only the washing machine was broken. The dryer wasn't in top shape either and my mother said that if we were going to have to take out the railing and the molding off the basement door to get the washer through she wasn't going to do it again in a year for the dryer. Fine, it's her money. Ha ha ha.

The funniest part was that this weekend, I had put my favorite pair of jeans in the old dryer to air-fluff. Being the lazy ass I am I never got around to taking them out. I guess I assumed someone else would toss them out when they wanted to dry laundry. But after the new washer and dryer were settled in and Best Buy hauled the old machines away, I noticed my jeans were nowhere to be found. I looked everywhere. Apparently no one had dried laundry or checked the old dryer for clothes before Best Buy took it away.

After a thorough search we decided that my jeans were still in the old dryer, on a Best Buy truck to who knows where. Of course I became upset, because I'm the kind of person who would anthropomorphize a pair of pants. My jeans were all alone and I'd never see them again! They'd never been outside without me before! So in the end we called Best Buy and asked them if they still had the dryer. If my jeans were in there, could they let us know? And early this morning, I heard the beep-beep-beep of the Best Buy delivery truck in our driveway. Bringing me back my jeans.

I'm so embarrassed now I could die. Now that I think of it those jeans are probably five years old. They're still in pretty good shape, though--and they're the only ones I have that don't drag on the floor when I walk.

I'm the one who had to get them. In my pajamas, no less. =_=
