Fix it or replace it? Learn how to talk about getting your appliances fixed in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:32 Explanations: 3:33 Fast dialog: 16:33 Virginia: Hand me that screwdriver, will you? Alonso: Don’t tell me you’re trying to fix that dryer yourself. We need to call in an authorized repairman or repairwoman. Virginia: Do you have any idea what they’ll charge? Alonso: All right, then I’ll call a handyman and see if he knows anything about fixing dryers. Virginia: If he doesn’t, he might make matters worse. I think it’s just a matter of clearing a clog or replacing a worn component. Alonso: Yes, but which one? We should just upgrade to a newer model. Virginia: This dryer does not need to be replaced. It’s not that old. Alonso: But it’s been on the fritz on and off for a year. Virginia: I don’t want to throw out a perfectly good appliance just because of a minor problem. Alonso: Well, this “minor problem” is the reason I had to walk to work in damp clothes this morning. Virginia: That wasn’t so bad, was it? Alonso: In the middle of winter?! You try walking with icicles in the most uncomfortable places! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
