The eldest daughter was at her BF’s parent’s house when the conversation turned to their 5 year old washing machine which had recently suddenly stopped working properly.
“I’ll have a look,” quoth she, “Gimme a screwdriver.”
In a trice she had whipped off the lower cover and was unscrewing the pump housing cover. As it came off the BF’s mother shrieked and swooned at the sight of a teacup full of water spilling onto the kitchen floor.
Daughter then hoked out an assortment of coins, string, clips, guitar plectrums and lint from the trap, refitted the pump cover and the lower fascia.
As the company admired the washing machine’s new lease on life the BF’s father remarked:
“I don’t understand it, WE’VE HAD IT SERVICED EVERY YEAR.”
