I have a washer-dryer that cured itself. It malfunctioned, and so I called up Lowe’s where we had bought it, and was informed that the warranty had run out but there was still a chance to renew it. I did, over the telephone, for a price of $410.
Unfortunately, I didn’t remember that I had renewed it with a subsidiary of Lowe’s a month earlier. Heaven has pity on les miserables like me, so the washer-dryer healed itself. It now works fine.
I’ll try to get a refund from one of the companies, but in the meantime I’m amazed at the workings of Providence (fate, to you).
