Any tips on Sunday appliance repair services in Chicago? Came home last night to a broken fridge and I’ve got a 6am flight out tomorrow morning? Adulting is hard...

Wow wasn’t really expecting an obnoxious response like this, glad to know my fellow Chicago consultants are so friendly. Of course I googled, I’m not an idiot, have called 8 different companies at this point and no one takes appointments on Sundays. All of my food will be ruined by tomorrow regardless so even if I could find someone willing to skip work on a Monday and sit at my house for a repairman it would be pointless. Was hoping for some helpful first hand advice but I guess that’s too much to ask....

Several options, kiddo:
Google emergency repair service.
Ask a neighbor to let a repair person in during the week.
Get a friend

I didn’t mean to be obnoxious- these are the three options that came to my mind. You don’t have any friends who may take in some of your stuff into their refrigerator for a week?
Here is what I found

Thanks for the response - I’m very stressed right now and probs got unnecessarily annoyed. Called like 15 ppl, 2 answers, 1 guy not working and 1 guy didn’t have the right parts so couldn’t help regardless. Oh well, guess I’ll just trash everything

Does anyone have family members who constantly demand money because they feel like you’re rich now because you’re a lawyer? I’ve always wanted to be in a position to help my family but we all live in the high COL city so my salary doesn’t carry me as far as it would elsewhere. I’ve given a detailed summary of all of my expenses yet every month one family member in particular comes to me for rent money (not some, the full amount, and they refuse to get a job). It has become quite the burden.
