    Default broken washing machine

    wife comes in nagging for me to fix the washing machine at 10 pm

    says its not draining

    so me thinking she needed to get kids uniforms washed .....

    try to open the pump case to see if its blocked and it wont turn so end up having to take front of the machine of take the pump off and remove pipes

    sure enough a 10p a 20p and what really worries me a Stanley blade that has to have come from me which means it must have been in a pocket (wtf was I thinking)

    got it all back together just before 11pm

    its now 11:15 and shes just got up from watching ramseys kitchen nightmares, i'm thinking shes going to get the stuff in the washer

    comes back with a glass of coke,packet of crisps and a mars bar and looks like shes settled down for the night

    at what point can I kill her for nagging me to do it so late at night when she has no interest in washing anything and im soaked in old smelly water

    Funnily enough my washing machine packed up yesterday aswell and I rushed home from work to drain the thing down and repair it and I found part of her bikini blocking the drain aswell as some pennies, finished it about 7:30 then run a quick wash to make sure it works, told her its all ok, she put the little one to bed and left it, I asked why I rushed and she told me she might use it tomorrow! Crazy woman !

    I have done some pretty heavy maintenance on mine - changed the bearings etc. Whole day's task, machine back to purring, and then she won't leave it alone for about a week until it's proved itself ! She'll get in the car with me though after a complete brake / suspension rebuild without batting an eyelid when shopping's involved.
