    Almost two years after I bought my big Samsung refrigerator/freezer, I finally hooked the water up to the ice maker.

    Now, I am out of a job. The job of manually filling ice trays to make ice! Automation has put me out of work.

    And also, the poor ice trays -- all three of them -- now sit alone and abandoned, in a cabinet. They lost their jobs too.

    The machine quietly and efficiently makes icecubes. Ice is always there now, with no effort from me. Anytime I want it.

    I have lost my job......

    But hell, then I mowed the yard and didn't feel so bad! I still have a job!

    I don't know why I put up with that stupid shit for two years. Only took 15 minutes to install the filter and the water line to the stupid fridge. Five of that was "breaking in" the filter.

    The ice maker was there for a reason, and all....

    I know, it's almost as bad as Obama getting rid of 200,000 auto dealership employees!:lol::lol:

    He didn't "save" those jobs!

    I went to get some ice this morning, and the bin was FULL!

    This machine even kept making ice as I slept!

    I've been replaced by a machine!

    Until the RectalScoop™ has been perfected and is available to the public, you will also still have a job pinching out your logs.

    We have one of those ice maker things in our fridge too... It's ok but to tell you the truth, I miss the ice cube trays. I love that sound when you pull up that handle thing and you hear the cracking noise. People that use those plastic ice cube trays that you just bend to get the ice out have no class... Another thing about the ice cube trays is that you can use them to make some really yummy jello things with or without alcohol in them! Don't throw the ice cube trays away. You might find yourself getting up in the middle of the night and sneaking down to the fridge and just for old times sake making some real honest to God ice cubes.
