It's a Conspiracy!

Is it too much to want nice, clean clothes?

Some of the regulars in the European Hot Tub will be aware of my laundry woes but for those of you who aren’t, I have a little tale of woe for you.

As you may have noticed, I’ve been busy lately and I’ve let the laundry accumulate. I decided I’d catch up last Sunday. All was going to plan until about 11am when I took my bag of whites through to the laundry room and found that the washing machine was dead. Not right away, mind you: it took my money before choking.

Then work kicked in big-time. I believe that the machine was fixed by Tuesday but I was getting back late, exhausted and with barely enough energy to sit in the Tub and watch words, strangely incomprehensible, flow by on the screen. I think I may have gathered together enough brain cells to have had a stab at “hello”.

It wasn’t a problem though. I thought about it and figured out I had just enough shirts to last me a week. I could get it done on Saturday ‒ after all, I had to work through the weekend so I’d grab the odd half hour or so.

It was with an amazingly light heart that I carried my whites, for the second time, to the laundry room today. I was confident and optimistic. After all, I’d seen the machine in use minutes earlier. And it went well too: it took my money this time, made all the right noises and started the half-hour countdown. I almost skipped back to the Pink Palace.

Thirty minutes later, I skipped back again, reached in to take out the dry washing and pop it into the dryer … hang on, something wrong there. The clothing was dry … and dirty. The accursed machine had not only taken my money again but had taunted me in the process.

As Bugs would say, “Of course, you realise this means war” … but the only way I can wage war against this machine is to refuse to feed it any more. Let it starve!

Tomorrow, I take my laundry down the road and get someone to do it for me. Extravagant, I know, but I am out of clean shirts to wear to work. It’s either that or go to work topless on Monday …

Gotta bugs me too....which is why I used to hand wash most of my stuff ten take the stuff that couldn't be hand washed to dry at a luanderette. If I lived close you'd be welcome to use my WM and TD.

But on a +ve stick me down for a quid for your next Q linen wash machine feeding frenzy whip round!

Q. Machines that break down, take your money and make you feel like this is terrible news. One would think that they were doing it on purpose!

Paranoia sucks!

Whats the differance between an Essex Girl and a washing machine?

The washing mashine doesn't follow you around for a month , after you have just dumped your load in it!.

the old one are always the best ones

mmmm the joys of living in NHS accomodation...........i used to love it. People stealing your food from the fridge & taking your washing out of the drier before it was ready.
Good luck with the task

If you are going to work topless on Monday, can I sit on the desk next to yours?

I don't know how your blog got lost off my "watch list" ... I had a lot of catching up to do, last I read you were offline for a bit as you were moving and were locked out (very funny it was, btw!). Love the Pink Palace, and yes, you should be worried about having gone "native" ... but hey, on the bright side, when you bring women there, they will think you are in touch with your feminine side and a romantic and probably tear your clothes before you realize what is happening, so enjoy!

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

Hotdev ... I used to handwash my stuff too ... now I don't even have the facilities for that! Please send the money to the charity of your choice

Racing ... As the wise man said: just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't actually out to get you!

GB_Cple ... I hate to say this but I'd never heard that one before ... eeee but you're an education to this (currently) Carshalton boy (small world, isn't it?).

Celtic ... At least I have my own fridge. There's no food left in it but at least there's space for some!

Trish ... Sorry but I managed to find a shirt I could wear ... perhaps next time?

Freetime ... What other choice would I have?

Syn ... Well, a hearty welcome back! And it's an interesting theory about the effect the PP would have on women (should I ever dare bring any back here) ... but at this rate I'll have no clothes left for them to rip off me!

Hotandhorny ... Yes, I know, I'm sorry. I realise it's a pretty awful image but what can I do?
