Press the button!

Press the button? Or not!

Hubby was being keen about helping with the house as I’m not feeling very well. This discussion happened when I asked him to put the washing machine on spin….

Set the dial to Spin and drain, number 15.

He did it fine.

Now press the on button.

I was watching from the living room and saw and heard the musical notes it plays when it’s switched on. Now press the start button….. Musical notes indicating he’d switched the washing machine off..

No, press the on switch again, then press the start button, it’s on this side of the dial…

He switched it on again, then pressed the little screen that shows you what program the machine is on… So I shouted, not that one, the button..

He switched the machine off again! No don’t do that! By then I was getting frustrated, but after forty years together he should be able to switch a Washing machine on.

Leave it switched on then press the button on this side of the dial!

Exasperated, I watched as he switched it on and went to move the dial…. This side I called… He went to press another button that allows you to change spin speeds or the temperature. NO! NOT THAT ONE! I really shouted this time. The one on this side of the dial BELOW the one you are pressing….

Clunk, whirrr…. SPIN!

HOORAY!
