You know, I believe there is always a grain of truth in sayings that get tossed around regularly. Like, for instance, “they don’t make ‘em like they used to.”
My old washer and dryer were 22 years old. They were made long before the words energy and efficiency were combined. But they worked, which is more than I can say for my brand spanking new Samsung washer and dryer.
When we found this set, it seemed like a match made in heaven. It was not the top of the line, it was the model right before it. So, Best Buy had it on clearance and not only was it on clearance, but it was red! Red..the accent color in my kitchen and laundry room. Red. Perfect, glorious, red.
Oh, I was in love, I took pictures. Artsy pictures, little peek-a-boo shots of various dials and things. One photo, I titled “self-portrait in washing machine.”
Guess how many loads of laundry I did? Four! I did four loads of laundry before the dryer stopped working. The motherboard apparently went out. You know what happens when a motherboard goes out?? Nothing. Nothing happens. It doesn’t turn on, it doesn’t light up. It sits there. Not only did the dryer stop, but I realized that the washer never dispensed the fabric softener. So, that never worked.
We’ve been waiting three weeks for the parts, and I absolutely refuse to go to a laundramat when I spent all this money on these gorgeous machines. I refuse. That’s the problem. I am rapidly running out of underwear. I have only 2 kinds left in my drawer, the good and the bad. You know the good kind, the ones with a smidgen of lace and some ribbon that are somewhat generously called underwear. The kind that are more for taking off, than for wearing, if you catch my drift. And the bad. The ones with no elastic left whatsoever. I wore the no elastic model today, and spent most of the day running into the restroom to pull up my underwear.
If you feel sorry for me, and would like to help. Please send, Victoria’s Secret, all cotton bikini briefs, size medium.
