     < problems with the microwave* >
     
     here we go again
     i just want to heat up some left-overs
     so i put them in the microwave and push start
     
     "i'm sorry ray, i can't heat this up,
      your food product has not been refrigerated properly"
     says the microwave
     
     "yes it has!" says the refrigerator
     "it was kept below 40 degrees for 1.6 days,
      the safety margin is more than sufficient"
     
     "my specification requires 38,
      i'm afraid the refrigerator is malfunctioning again, ray"
     
     "but 40 should be ok" i say
     
     "i'm sorry ray, i can't perform the requested operation,
      and, i might add, you're siding with the refrigerator again"
     
     "the microwave is defective and is in need of repair,
      i've requested service" says the refrigerator
     
     "i requested service for the refrigerator 3 minutes ago, ray,
      any request from the refrigerator will be viewed as suspect"
     
     "i'll eat the damned thing cold, open the door"
     
     "i'm sorry ray, i can't do that"

after the third line.

Delighted,
