Don’t Try This at Home
Just a friendly reminder: do not use electronic appliances near open water and be very very careful of what you wash!
I do the majority of the laundry. In a pinch I can count on anyone tall enough to reach the machines to pitch in, still, I am usually the one who enjoys the extreme pleasure of tackling and taming the smoldering mountains of laundry.
In return for my services I do ask for a couple of things:
1. Put all clothes intended for washing into the designated hampers, and
2. Empty pockets and unfold all fashionable cuffs as you take off your clothes and deposit them in said hampers.
Yes, I am a prima donna of housework that way. Just because I don’t get a paycheck every week , that does not mean that I embrace indentured servitude. I’m free to walk at anytime.
Just help me out a little with the above requests and make the job go a little faster. I’m just asking for a little self policing. But ya know what? Stuff happens. Some poor forgetful soul (who shall remain nameless – IT WASN’T ME!) simply forgot to take their cell phone out of their pocket. I didn’t detect it while I was loading the machine and I’m sure you can imagine the rest. Hey accidents happen.
We dried it out, but let’s just say it was never the same. Had any mishaps with your prized possessions?
