TV Troubles!

Ok, my husband received a promotion 2+ years ago and with his extra income we purchased a NICE tv. It was his gift for working so hard. On Sunday morning the TV decided not to turn on. I know that there is a lot in our budget going out on adoption right now and decided I wasn't going to think twice about the stupid TV. Yes, I felt jipped for spending so much and it not lasting too long, on and on. Dave and I discussed the situation and we decided that we were not going to spend any more. We would bring the little one from our bedroom out to the living room.

I went to work and when I arrived home Dave had a Cheshire Cat grin. I couldn't figure it out. He has a NEW Phillips TV! Ok, it is name brand (our other one wasn't) and.......It is 8 inches bigger!!!!! Our old TV was past warranty and when he called the dealer to get a place to take it to fix it, they wouldn't give him a name because it was past warranty, WHAT??? He did a little research online and found out the the brand we purchased wasn't known for their customer service. Dave called Sam's Club (sorry Costco) and they said bring it in and they will refund the money.....well past warranty, on and on. Dave called his friend and they took it in, they gladly refunded the money and said that he would have to get a Sam's Club membership renewed.....didn't think twice, of course. So, Dave got a new Phillips TV, 8 inches larger, Sam's Club membership for the two of us for a year and a refund of $.90! How amazing is that? I'm so glad that I didn't worry about it!
