Keeping it real

So.....a few weeks ago our deep freeze that is the on the creepy large size, like you can fit a couple dead bodies in there creepy. Yeah, so anyway it was free and is probably 30 years old. It stopped working. The breaker was tripped so I switched it back and threw away the spoiled food and we started over. Well apparently the breaker got tripped again. But we didn't find out right away and lost more food....sigh....

I voiced my disappointment on facebook and a friend who we had helped when their house burned down offered us the one they were trying to sell on craigslist for FREE! We were amazed, and are so grateful! Got the freezer, plugged it in and it started working right away...score!!
Well, the next day I go to put some food back in it and its not working....WHAT!!?? I'm beginning to think I'm on some candid camera show or in the twilight zone.

So, I go over to the breaker and its tripped again! Now we had just had our old dinosaur deep freeze hauled away not 2 hours earlier. I flip it back and not 10 seconds later the thing sparks and its tripped. There was NOTHING wrong with the old freezer, besides being not energy efficient and a space hog.

We are so grateful for generous friends and that we didn't have to buy a new or used freezer.
Tim just plugged it into a different wall outlet and its been working great ever since. Now we just need to call an electrician to come and fix the breaker. I might wait until I have a few more jobs, because they do charge by the hour and I might as well get our moneys worth.
