A miracle blender

Recently I reached out to other writers to share their “everyday miracles”.  Periodically I’ll share some of their responses with you.  Tonight is the first.

This miracle was sent in by Jacinta Mpalyenkan:

A blender of a miracle

My most recent miracle is about a blender that I bought for my mother awhile back. After about 9 months of usage, the blender’s jug broke and couldn’t be used anymore. I contacted the manufacturer and requested for a replacement since the blender was still under warranty. They claimed that the warranty didn’t cover wear and tear, and so, couldn’t replace it.  They however advised me that they had the jugs in storage for just $37. I executed the purchase transaction online and waited for the jug.  Meanwhile, my mother called and advised me not to buy the jug since the remaining part of the blender had unfortunately fallen down, breaking the on-off switch.

I contacted the manufacturer in vain, to stop him from sending the jug.  After 3 days, I decided to get my mother a new blender.  As I came out of the house that afternoon to go shopping for another blender, the UPS guy came in with a box. When I opened it, it was an entire new blender and not just the jug. I checked my bank account and they had only withdrawn $37 for the jug. I called them immediately, and fortunately, I got to speak to someone this time. Considering that I had tried to contact them for 3 days and never got to speak to anyone, this was a miracle. Everything seemed so synchronized for my comprehension. When I spoke to the manager, she told me that since it was an error from their side, I shouldn’t worry about returning the blender.

I got my mother a new $350 value blender for just $37. That was a miracle.
