I needed appliance repair in Sacramento immediately. My stokve broke and Thanksgiving was the very next day. I had 18 family members who had already arrived for the big meal that I was preparing. It was too late in the day to find an appliance store open so that I could buy a new one. I had made some things in advance, but I had a fridge full of foods that I had not yet prepared. The thought of all the food going to waste and needing to order a dozen pizzas for our holiday meal was not appealing.
After consulting the phone book and calling 15 different appliance repair businesses, I finally found a company that answered when I called. the man who picked up the phone sounded very tired. In the background, I could hear a lot of people talking. I thought maybe he was at a restaurant at first. I told him why I was calling. he then told me that he understood, he had been watching his wife running around the house trying to get ready for their own Thanksgiving meal. He said that he had 10 family members who had come in just for the occasion. He was willing to help me.
It turned out that the man that I spoke to to that night was someone that I went to college with. It was great to see him and get caught up while he worked on getting my stove running again. My old friend was the owner of the appliance company that I called, and he was doing really well for himself. The fact that he showed up the night before a major holiday spoke volumes about what a good company he runs. I will be sure to use his service the very next time I need someone again.
