Yes, you are correct. I broke in a heavy duty power cord this past Summer connected to my refrigerator for a week. It seemed fully broken in afterwards.

Just use a three prong to IEC adapter.
It seems like a power cord will take forever to break in on a fridge since they only run intermittently.
The person who made fun has 11 posts.... And I think it was a 'joke' rather than making fun of you. IT is difficult since English has no punctuation for joke. We need one for joke, and a separate on for sarcasm/irony. Seriously no one is making fun of anyone breaking in a power cord on a fridge. A lot of folks do it.
perhaps it was a joke. From first through ninth grade I was bullied because part of my last name rhymed with a dirty word. The kids would sing song it on the school bus to and from school so I am a bit wary when someone attempts a joke at my expense. Thanks for pointing it out. The cord on the fridge really works. An air conditioner is even better but it’s Winter. All is forgiven now.
@stereo5 I can empathize. Distinctly personal scars like that are unfortunately resilient even over the span of many years. One consequence is that we become hypersensitive to slights especially on places like Audiogon where it is very difficult to detect good natured humor from cutting sarcasm.
@Elizabeth I like your idea of having punctuation marks to denote the author's humorous intent.
