Running wise it was a quite weekend. I really think my hip is back to running health and I will test it out today. I took the weekend off to rest it and because it was cold and rainy and I didn’t feel like running (just to be blunt).
I did have a cool thing that happened to me this weekend. Not to do with running, but does deal with social media.
I have a Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer. It has worked perfectly since we purchased it 5 years ago. The frustrating part was that on the refrigerator side, all the shelves began breaking. First the side door shelves and then the main section. Even a nob built into the side of the fridge to hold a shelf broke off. It has gotten to the point where we have 2 shelves in the main part of the fridge and 1 on the door and that is all that is left. I thought about trashing it and getting a new unit, but it works flawlessly and the freezer side has no issues.
I checked on prices of the shelves and they range on the low side of $50 EACH. That is crazy for shelves that have all broken.
So Saturday, in frustration I tweeted this:
@Frigidaire Great working fridge. Inside shelves all broke though and even pegs on wall to hold shelves.
Within minutes I got a tweet back and they asked for my email. Long story short, after a few exchanges of emails and tweets, they sent me this:
Thanks for responding so quickly, Tom. I have provided you a parts reference guide for your refrigerator model. Please review it and provide me the part numbers you believe you are in need of. On behalf of Frigidaire, I would like to provide those to you at no cost as a way of saying thank you for being a part of our family.
Wow, now that is customer service. I’ll be buying Frigidaire from now on and will recommend it to my friends.
