Here’s a true, short story that I’ve entitled, “An Unnecessary Expense,” but you may prefer “Take the Advice” or even “Inflation.” Any will work.
This morning, I stood over the kitchen sink pondering what to do about my newly discovered frozen garbage disposal.
This afternoon, I phoned my dad who told me to push a crowbar or something sturdy inside it to dislodge the blades. I replied, “No. I’ll just buy a new one.”
This evening, I went online to price the model I presently have. And now?
That crowbar has my disposal working just fine.
Dedicated to my frugally-minded brethren.
