spoke too soon about my coffeemaker...made the first cup fine, now it's being tempermental again
when our dishwasher broke (I fixed it myself once - but this time, too much was wrong) - I looked at buying a new one. But ultimately decided to just skip it.

I looked at very expensive ones - thinking I would buy one that would last for 15 years or more. Turns out, they no longer exist. So, I just wash my dishes myself. Honestly, it takes a few minutes (even with all the cooking I do). I'm really annoyed that they don't make things to last (they sure could - even if you just had to easily pull out different parts and replace them after they wore out).

I would think someone could do well with the pull out and replace concept. it (probably) wont be mass-market, but there's def. a niche for people who don't mind paying extra, knowing it would last for years just replacing part.
I miss the dishwasher when I was on the FD - we called him "Rookie" :)

i'll look at your coffeemaker if you give me a jolt of diet mountain dew.

ps, check youtube and see if there are videos of what you think the issue is and watch the repair the content creator does.

did some of the easy fixes (vinegar, etc). Good idea about the youtube vids - might be something I haven't thought of , since I did the obvious ones
And sure, I'll spring for some diet mountain dew :)

Description: This is Part 1 of a 2-part survey. We would love for you to participate. However, we can only accept full-time employees who:

1. Can think of a time in the last 12 months when (1) an employee at your organization (not you) did something unethical and (2) this person's manager found out about. You will be asked to write about this event.

2. Can complete Part 2 of the survey, a shorter survey which will launch 2 weeks from now. We can only use data from participants who complete both so please only begin Part 1 if you can complete Parts 2 as well. Participants who complete both parts of the survey will be entered into a lottery for the chance to win a $20 bonus.

Part 2 - $.50/2 minute survey, launching Saturday May 21, 2022

If you participate in Part 1, you will receive an email as soon as Parts 2 is available.

Each survey will ask you about your thoughts, feelings, and attitudes toward the work event you write about in Part 1.

Thank you for your attention and participation, we sincerely appreciate it!
