  1. I purchased a refrigerator on July 14, 2021. I had a delivery date of Monday, July 19. After having emptied my current refrigerator that day I got a call saying that the unit was dented and that they didn’t have another one in stock, but there would be one to deliver on Tuesday, July 20. The truck came to my driveway but was too big to drive up. I got an appointment for delivery on Wednesday, July 21. No small truck was available that day. I got an appointment for Thursday, July 22. No delivery people are available for Thursday. Now I have an appointment for Friday. I tried to confirm that appointment so that my daughter could be available. I waited during 19 1/2 minutes with the phone at delivery dept. ringing. No one answered. Then I tried Customer Service. I was on hold for 13 minutes when I was disconnected. I am waiting to get confirmation for the delivery tomorrow. Please assure me that I will get my refrigerator tomorrow morning as promised. My daughter has rearranged her schedule to help me. I am a 79 year old widow and can’t handle this alone.
