    Washing machine laugh

    I purchased on Saturday a new washing machine in a closing down sale which would be delivered on Monday. Great. Phone call in the afternoon by driver to say the machine had fallen off the lorry.

    love to see your story. I have one almost as good. I drive a school bus. now that I have told you that you will know way. I was driving the track team to a meet. and was behind a small pick-up with a NEW DRYER still in the box in the back. the whole team watch as the dryer fall out of the track. that was a few years ago but the kids still ask about the guy and his dryer.
    Scrapy quilts have more love in them.

    Ugh! We just bought one couple weeks ago. The store tried to sell us couple tie downs so wouldn't fall out of truck. Dh has every tool you can think of when it comes to a need. He had the tie downs. was on sale and no delivery charge. This washer as most do now days has a locking lid. That is the major downfall so far.

    That's funny because where I live if a man tells you something fell off a truck it usually means it's stolen and you can get a really good deal!

    Glad they gave you a better machine. You deserved it for the extra time you spent waiting for the initial delivery.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    A truck but smaller than those I have seen running up your highways.

    I had a washing machine laugh awhile back. I was putting in a load of clothes and glanced at the date i had marked under the lid showing the date of purchase. I thought to myself..."16 years and it still runs like a new one."
    It died in the middle of the cycle....full of water!

    They "always" quit when they are "full of water"....must be the unwritten law

    My washing machine "funny". A few years ago my son was totally into magnets, the strong ones that would sound like static when they hit together. I was wandering around the house, cleaning up after him. I picked up the magnets and put them in the pocket of my shorts so my hands were free to carry the rest of the junk that I had picked up. I was walking through the laundry room to go into the garage and got stuck to the washing machine!!
