179/365: Disposable

We bought a chest freezer less than two years ago. Last week, it stopped working. After frantically transferring thawing food to my parents' house, we called for the repairman. Cost to repair? More than what the unit cost. Under warrantee? Nope, warantees are just 12 months, and even if it were under warrantee, they'd just bring an entire new freezer and discard the old one. Seems a tremendous waste of resources (steel, aluminum, wiring, motors, etc.) to me.
