Sometimes you have to call for reinforcements.

Busted Microwave Blues


My wife proclaims on occasion

I’m remarkably easy to confuse

So Silly me I can’t disagree

As I try changing this 20 amp fuse


The first step is trying to find it

The manual is no longer around

The other first step is to unplug the damn thing

So that I’m not the path to the ground.


220 volts is a good jolt of juice

Enough to get your attention

While I root in the heart of the microwave parts

Searching for the fuse I previously mentioned


Just six months ago I was watching the show

As the technician was working his magic

But inattention was there, now I don’t where

The fuse socket is located, how tragic


So now once again I get to spend the big dough

On a cheap part that he’ll install next week

I’m feeling quite lame as mechanic

As I paddle my boat up s*** creek

Patrick, you could buy a new microwave for what it would cost to fix the old one.

Wives can be so danged mean; you just have to out fox them sometimes. When our toaster broke, my wife got on my case to fix it, so I slipped out and bought an identical toaster, and quickly replaced the broken one. She thought I was a genius, for a few days, anyway!

Thank you for the late night laugh. Too cute.

I feel for your chagrin, but I love this poem.;-)Most mechanical fixes are best left to the experts,Patrick,so don't feel too badly...
