The people at Maytag lie. We all know what the Maytag Repairman is supposed to look like. However, today when I had him come to repair my microwave, he was not a 6'2" white guy in a blue uniform and cap. Instead, he was a 5'10" black guy in a black jacket and ball cap. He did a great job repairing my microwave and did it in about 3 minutes. But I was a little disappointed that he didn't look like he was supposed to. It would be like going to meet the Jolly Green Giant and finding a purple midget. At least make them wear the uniform. This is a pop culture icon. You gotta give the people what they expect.
