my fridge died an evil death

[Post New]by kore21 on May 14, 09 10:05 PM
supposedly it died overnight. the game gave me the choice of throw all the food away, or "chance it." i threw it all away. i lost a ton of food.

i assume if you "chance it" you will have to buy medicine. or run the risk of a potentially fatal illness?

I had a power failure and I chose to throw out the food.

I went to the store and bought the 4 organic food groups. (Someone in an earlier message reported possibly longer life with this better food.)

You don't have to throw the food out. I have only thrown it away once and since then I have always chosen the "Take a chance" option and the food has always been ok.

Yep, took a chance because I had over 1000 units of food. No one got sick.

I always choose to "take a chance"- so far so good.

How do you know how many units of food you have?

Click on the refrigerator. Course, the door stays open for a while since you can't close it after you have peeked inside.

Click on the trash can to see if you need to empty it.

hehe well they don't give you choice to toss some stuff & not others. in RL ketchup would be ok overnight. i would never take a chance with eggs. especially if they tasted like freon.

i'll try the take a chance option next time. there IS some kinda medicine for some evil sickness they don't say what it is. hope that's it. right now i'm testing to see what happens when you don't cure allergies...

yet another fridge disaster: man comes & says he's a job trainer, cost you 5 bucks. sounded too good to be true but hey, i'll bite. he cleaned out the fridge, no food left again.

i assume this is to make it more challenging to get your food trophies.

I took my chance and the only thing that happened was my little lady got the sneezes.

Kore, I had a job trainer come but charged $250. My father did get the promotion. So I guess sometimes you get what you pay for.

Thanks for the warning. I would have taken up that $5 offer after the other one had worked.

thanks, atropos. i'm figuring each choice thing has a good or bad result.

another goodie: the postman drops off a package at your house with the neighbor's address on it. they give you the choice of keep it, or be honest & return it to the neighbor. i chose honesty, & the neighbor rewarded me w/ $100. not bad.

another upside of the fridge dying: you can replace your cheap foods with healthier organics??

When you choose "throw away the food" ALL of your food doesn't disappear - I think only about half the food is gone (supposedly, the perishables).
