So here we go again…
Two weeks ago, our washing machine of five years suddenly broke down (I had done my laundry just prior and it worked fine) and we had to find a replacement; off we went shopping for our new washing machine.
We found the perfect one at Courts, and placed an order; it was due to arrive in three working days, and meanwhile, we were all struggling to wash our clothes by hand at home using the old soak and rinse method.
The big day came and our new washing machine arrived, but much to our disappointment, it was too big for the washing machine platform.
WHO THE FUCK KNEW THAT WE HAD TO MEASURE THE FUCKING PLATFORM BEFORE BUYING A NEW WASHING MACHINE?!
The guys who delivered it to us said that we could find those little stands to hold it up, but even then, I wasn’t satisfied; it was way too big and took up too much space in the already tiny weeny laundry area in the kitchen. We couldn’t shift it elsewhere either because firstly, we had nowhere else to put it, and secondly, the laundry area was the only designated spot with the laundry fixtures (taps, drainage, etc), so we had no other choice.
We had to get it changed.
Luckily we didn’t get charged a lot for the replacement (a smaller version of the one we bought earlier), and today, it got delivered and installed, while the delivery guys took the big one away.
Obviously I was the first one to throw in my clothes; I was dying for the washing machine to arrive because I had accumulated a mountain of dirty clothes.
Everything went well, nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
Our tenant washed her clothes after me, and guess what?
The fucking washing machine started leaking. We couldnt identify where the leakage came from, so now, we have to arrange for the Courts handymen to come and have a look.
Will our washing machine woes ever end? Geeeez.
