Before complaining about contractor (who, BTW, is great) on semi-public forum (e.g. personal website), check and make sure that he didn't come YESTERDAY while I was out losing my mind at IKEA and fixed the whole shebang.
You guessed it - the guy came and fixed it yesterday. With my post-IKEA attitude, I didn't even check on the dryer before heading out to the laundromat. *smacks forehead repeatedly with flat hand*
