All I know is they suck. It took me months to get an oven, there was no way I was playing that game with a washer.
I told my husband I was going shopping for a new washer and that I would be getting something ‘basic’ with no bells or whistles. My husband was home the other day when the matching set was delivered. He was
puzzled at first as he thought we were just getting a new washer. But it’s like shoes right, if you don’t have the matching pair then what’s the point?!
His concern grew deeper as he ran his finger over the digital displays and inquired about the cost of the units. After asking him to take a seat, I explained. And thus a ‘conversation’ ensued regarding my definition of ‘basic.’
(Me) It is basic, it basically washes clothes and then the dryer dry’s them.
(Him) It basically cost a lot of money. You said you were not getting any bells or whistles.
(Me) I didn’t. Yes, its high efficiency and it has a 4.3 cubic wash tub and it also has a built in technology that allows me to trouble shoot issues while it connects to my phone but aside from that there are no bells or whistles. It just looks different then what you’re used to. I could have gotten the set in a different color, but no, I got white. Is white basic enough for you?!
It was then that the ‘test’ wash completed and the washing machine played a song! A nice, groovy, twenty second melody instead of
a buzz or a beep. I didn’t know it was going to do that or I would have taken the conversation outside. Because after that the conversation was OVER. I tried my best to argue that a song was different than bells or whistles but I sounded like a fool.
I am no longer allowed to go appliance shopping alone but I don’t understand why. I said would get something ‘basic’ and ‘basically’ I got exactly what I wanted. I didn’t realize washers and dryers had gotten so cool!
These Valentines turned out so cute. What did Mom's do before Pintrist?!
