Transmigration of the Washing Machine Soul

The repairman came by to fix the dishwasher. Almost $150 in "labor" costs for an hour of work, although the repairman sees only $22 of it. Although I had a relatively easy time conducting this warrantied repair, economics teaches me to be suspicious of warranties.

This weekend I learned that the day our washing machine broke, our friends had their washing machine installed. That leads me to believe that there is a fixed number of washing machine souls available for use at one time. The fact that ours is now working means that someone else's is probably broken.

I hope it's not yours.
