I know it is kind of evil, but oh my gosh, I just can’t stop laughing. Look at that face!

Battle With Technology

My Saturday in six words:


2013-04-13 13.56.46

Ever since I bought our dishwasher, it has been giving us troubles. And after three new pumps in two years, I decided to leave behind daily irritation and ignore it. The dishwasher gave me the silent treatment and sometimes I’d hear faint screams for attention, but the door to the soaping sanctum stayed shut.

A couple of years ago we decided to give it another try. V-man rearranged the piping system and since then, the device worked with us. Kind of. The result of the cleaning attempts was always a surprise. Sometimes all would be sparkling, at other times a layer of a non-identified substance still held onto the plates, pots and pans. Firing up a short second program mostly got the dishwasher back in line.

Until the day before yesterday. Eagerly it opened its maw and swallowed all we fed it, even accepting the square soap-tablet. I fired up its engines and sat down after a long day. The dishwasher swished and swooshed and made a couple of faint sounds, to relax into silence – far too early. I opened the door, took one look inside and turned the button back to business. With the same result. Another program also died after a couple of minutes. Malfunction.

For two hours I have been trying to goad the dishwasher into submission once again, with subtlety and a firmer hand, but nothing. My device finally threw in the towel. In my face. To dry the dishes myself.

Have a clean Saturday! 🙂
