Appliance guides for dummies

One more reason I can't wait until we own a house...

Mr. RK had to put this sign on one of the dryers in our apartment complex. Because unplugging the machine, which made a buzzing noise and smoked, wasn't enough. And yes, I get to hear this sense of humor every day! I am a lucky girl.

Maybe it can be use to make toast?

Claire said...

Haha! You obviously live with some people as 'interesting' as our neighbours!

Granny Annie said...

Just for your information that can also happen if you own your home and your own dryer. Mine finally got fixed this weekend or I was going to have to post a sign too:)

LL Cool Joe said...

I agree with Granny Annie, we have things in this house that shouldn't be used, it's obvious they are dying, but does anyone care? Nope, just carry on using it until the house burns down and then I'll say "I told you so!"

Never fails to amaze me that you have to put up signs (or write things in memos, etc) that painfully state a serious blinding case of the obvious.

And what's going to happen when you get a home and Mr RK learns that it's been you plugging in the smoking dryer?

Workingdan said...

I sure don't miss living in an apartment! Having your own house is much better!

Jeannie said...

Every single line is necessary in that note too which is the sad bit. Some Einstein out there seeing just "Out of Order" and the plug out would think he knew what was wrong then wouldn't he?

I LOVE his DRYER sense of humour!!!!

Ha! That Mr. RK puts a smile on people's faces, doesn't he?

we have THREE signs saying "Please do not overload washers and dryers; they leak" yet every night at least two tools cram them unevenly to the brim and off we go, banging away furiously and spreading water all over the floor.

One of the joys of living in a white trash haven because it is cheap...turns out many of the neighbors are...wait for it...illiterate white trash

I think your husband and I would get along well. Good god, I can't count how many similar notes I hung in my old apartment regarding our front door, which, when left ajar, always meant there would be a bum sleeping in the hall in the morning. Oh Chicago...

Riot Kitty said...

Squirrel: What a great idea! ;)
C: We used a different laundry room than usual...
GA: Good point!
Joey: I hope it doesn't get to that point!
WIGSF: Haha. I may not be an electrical person, but I do not use things if they smoke and buzz.
WD: Most of the time it's fine...we want to save up to buy our own house, not rent someone else's. But this was irritating.
Jeannie: You would think so!
John: Haha!
S: He managed to convince his co-workers that he used to work in porn one time.
Darth: I don't have any neighbors of that type ...at least I thought we didn't.
ABFTS: I think so. Bums in the hall? Seriously?!

Shockgrubz said...

Here's hoping that you get a house! I'll follow along.

Logical Libby said...

I bet someone still plugs it in...

Riot Kitty said...

Shock: Thanks! We'll even let you use the dryer. :)
Libby: They'd have to remove lots of industrial tape, but yes, I bet you're right.

This made me laugh so hard that I squirted coffee out of my nose. Slow drip coffee maker.

NV: Excellent!
