Fortunately you'll never have this problem again because you'll be replacing your washer every 7-8 years now. 

 

Only if you don't try to fix them! I tore mine apart... hey, about 8 years after I got it...  and replaced the assembly at the bottom that decides whether the tub freewheels or everything spins. Total cost: Maybe $140 in parts and tools, 4-5 beers, a few hours (not helped by the beers), and whatever electricity I spent streaming The Longest Day and In Harm's Way to my phone (also didn't help the time).

 

Must be a baby boomer thing. Us millennials don't expect everyone else to clean up after us. ;)

 

Nice!

A.  Either jump the switch or open it, accordingly. (B. Realizing your wife would have needed to make sure she didn't try to add additional garments after the start of the wash cycle. ;))

 

I didn't feel I could guarantee B so I didn't A.  Also bear in mind I have a live-at-home adult son and a cheapo-can't-pay-for-the-apartment-complex-washers son who also use the machine, so it wasn't just the wife.

Sheesh, where's your sense of adventure? Besides, IIRC, you're still on your starter wife & you definitely have at least 1 spare kid, so really, there's VERY little downside. :P

:lol:

My cola pay bump just showed up in our HR software. 1.67% which at my piddly salary equates to about 27 cents per hour. So much winning!

Email gremlins. They strike at the worst times.

 

Copy pasted an address to send my resume/cover letter shenanigans to- a friend at a good company has a part time lead for me, for which I am extremely hopeful and grateful. 

 

 

Today he hits me up again, essentially asking why I never sent anything. 

 

For some bizarre reason, he never received it. Not in the spam, not in the junkmail- my email says it sent... We sorted it out but god... nothing says "I REALLY WANT THIS JOB" more than looking like you never even tried to apply...  :sick:

 

I'm going to pass out.

Yeah my last 2 raises have been less than $20 a week. I once thought I had a decent salary but I'm quickly realizing that life passed me by and I'm probably headed toward the downward slope of the bell curve in my career.

What?


Oh you aren't the only one flabbergasted by the "nonsense". :)

As someone who is not a sweets guy, I am definitely going to try this.

When I have my kidnap-and-reprogram session with Swamp, "snacks that intrigue" will definitely be on the issues list.

Note to self, be very wary of slow moving vans while walking in Brooklyn.
