Get Down


This reminds me of when I ran out of dishwasher detergent and decided that Ivory Liquid was a good substitute. Clicked ON and went to work, came home to an apartment full of suds.

The worst part was that it occurred in my dad’s apartment, and he fixed the problem so it wouldn’t happen again. He booted me out.

    Had that happen with a nice, fluffy down jacket. Made a really nice windbreaker after I’d plucked it.

    And the washer worked okay after I plucked IT, as well..

    I made the dish soap mistake once.


    It was my place, and I was home at the time, so the mess wasn’t *too* egregious.

    I had a different dishwasher problem another time, though. My wife and I (I was married then) bought a semi-custom home that was bank repo. The couple who owned it had gone through a *very* acrimonious divorce and had let their teenaged daughters live there unsupervised for a year, and the wife had taken all of the kitchen appliances before they abandoned the house. The people who installed the replacement dishwasher didn’t attach the drain hose to anything, which gave us quite the surprise the first time we did the dishes.

    Watcher– The missus decided to wash the rubber backed rugs once. I didn’t know about it until I did a load of my chonies and found all that the rubber backing had infested the machine.

    wheels– Worst we had were some underslab leaks. The first one I cheaped out on – Tattoo Jackhammer Boy did a number on it for $900. A new leak a month later, right down line, so I bit the bullet and had the house re-plumbed overhead.
