Notes on the science of Peace
or why tropical countries are not more developed
or why is that the repair man cannot get here by 2 30
or why it does no good to scream
I have been back to store Three times since the new fridge stopped working last Thursday. They have assured me that the manufacturer will send a representative to certify it for repair since their technician has already certified that is a gas leak and the fridge is only three months old.
And I have certified to them. In my sweetest Dominican way. With no anger at all, because I am learning, always learning. That if there is not a new fridge in my apartment by Wed, they will be talking with the American Express Company rather than me.
It is assumed that I will sit here and wait for them to arrive.
We joke here about getting things do. Once I made a list with three things on it, and got all three of them done. A friend bragged that she once had a list with 6 things on it and got all six things done in one day. No one believes her.
So this is what happens. One learns to have no expectations of accomplishment.
One learns that they will arrive when they arrive.
As it will happen, it will happen........
But it is not an easy adjustment.
