I just took the chicken in the bag, in the bag out of the fridge to prep it for dinner and it had leaked all over the bottom shelf of the fridge, and onto the floor when I took it out.

Now I have to clean and sanitize the fridge and the vegetable bin under the shelf and toss some food that may have been contaminated.

All this is complicated by the fact that the fridge is in a corner so I can't open the door beyond 90 to facilitate shelf removal.

You have no idea how PO'd I am. (feel free to substitute the words I really wanted to say here.)
Dang, Andy! I've had that one happen before! What a nasty mess to clean up.

I hope the rest of your evening turns out well and relaxing for you.

Timothy--
It'll dry out in the next month, how very reassuring. I'd be drinking more than one glass of wine...

I have a very good scatological vocabulary...I'd be using the choicest, too.

Sorry this happened and no easy fixes.

I want to KICK my father in the shin. I've been encouraging him to get rid of my mom's car--she can't drive, yadda, yadda, yadda. While I was there for 7 weeks, I drove my mom's car. Before I left, she told me to take it home. I can't just take a car home--there is a border to cross. When I talked with my dad last Sunday, he asked me if I wanted my mom's car. I said yes--my brother could drive it to MN for visits, as could I. I spent HOURS on the phone with CDN customs and my insurance company trying to figure out the logistics. I booked a train ticket, and I spent $195 registering the first paper one has to register to import a car. I called last night--he SOLD the car. I'm out $195. I have a voucher on Amtrak, but I'm soooo mad at him. I called Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday--no mention of having sold the car. BAH! And then he says, "do you want me to get it back?" That's not the point dad. Arggh.

So sorry CWS. All the time and energy spent, I would be tearing my hair out too! Maybe he SHOULD get the car back.

It was tempting to tell him to get it back...dealing with elderly parents from a distance can be...trying. And I still want to kick him in the shin.
