Not a good afternoon

Yesterday I installed new complete axels, brakes centramitics, etc. (Thanks Andy for good sucess). Last night I installed the newly recovered frount couch. Today I thought since I was on a roll I would mount a new 110 volt refrigerator from Lowes as I won't need LP driven. Seemed so simple. I called a service technician and told me there shouldn't be any lines where I needed to mount a bracket to hold it in place so it won't tip over. 1/8' hole 1/8' from the frount where the gasket touches and you know what happened. The odds would have to be tremendous. Tomorrow I go back and buy another one. Anyone intresting in one with less then an hour. Why does the expensive lessions stick with you longer. The delimia now is how to hold it in place. It was not a pretty sight.

Gat, It won't make you feel any better but you are not alone. We've all done something similar at one point or another.
