The Leaking Dryer: Family Funny

“Dad, Dad, come quick!  The dryer is leaking water!”

As his feet began to move toward the screaming child’s voice, the incongruence of the report made Doug wonder what he would find.

Sure enough, when he rounded the corner, he saw a stream of water pooling around the dryer.

The conclusion:

1.  Child needs congratulations for the initial act of doing his own laundry.

2.  Child needs revelation that the washing machine is supposed to spin the water out of the clothes.  If it somehow misses the spin cycle, the dryer cannot be expected to cover this.

Aw.  Lessons around our house can be tough on appliances.
