I salute your outrage and wish you the best with your future litigation but I will remind you that the environmental lead exposure everyone is losing their minds over in Flint is a bare fraction of the lead exposure you and I grew up with.

Much like environmental mold, lead is oh shit bad NOW primarily because it can be avoided. And you should. But proving actual damage is harder.

I agree, but mainly I'm just pissed off that they actually had a conversation with management on this that started: "Here's how we handle this: first offer store credit. If they balk, often a refund." The callous indifference is more what I'm reacting to. How about a refund with interest to start. And an apology. With all the negative press that the state of Michigan has received, you'd think they'd be more sensitive. Possible I'm overreacting, but they started it.

Gentle reminder: Bosch gave me a free dishwasher and I'll never buy anything of theirs ever again.

Corporate responsibility and concern is a rare commodity.
