After a good night of sleep, I decided to just cancel the grocery order lmao. Walmart contracts its grocery delivery out to Doordash, and there's some kind of communication/coordination issue between them. Like yesterday, Walmart prepped my order for delivery, made substitutions and everything, and then the Doordash driver canceled. I figure I'll give them a few days to sort their system out before trying again. We're not completely out of food yet.
A bunch of small annoying things are adding up:
"It hasn't been a good week for people doing it," was my roommate's comment.
Tomorrow I should go down to the rental office and remind them we put in a request for maintenance six weeks ago. I went three weeks ago and they were apologetic and said they'd send someone by Saturday for sure, but I guess they never said which Saturday, so joke's on me.
update (11/16): Ordered groceries a couple days ago and they came today just like normal—no delays, no hassle. So hopefully the November 11-12 issue was just a one-time issue caused by the system downtime.
I once fixed the toilet chain problem with a paper clip. I mean, it didn't take long for the paper clip to rust and break, but it works in a pinch. Even a piece of string tied to the chain and lever would probably work until you can get a replacement part.
@justanotherjen Hmm, yeah, I could try that. Thanks for the idea.
