Show Description
The talking refridgerator Shep tells about getting a soldering iron for his birthday and commenced to become imersed in soldering projects two of which led him into trouble. The first problem was when he spent the day soldering on his mothers new tablecloth. The excess solder dripped trough the chasis he was working on and burned the tablecloth. After being banned from using the kitchen table he moved his operation to a counter near the breadbox. There was even a convenient outlet here. All was well until on night there was a scream from the kitchen. The old man had come down in the dark to get a piece of bread. Guess who left the soldering iron plugged in! The old man grabbed it in the dark and by the time he was through yelling it was at the bottom of the basement stairs - shattered. So, of course, Shep saved up and bought a new one.
