The long and short about The Washing Machine

My washing machine broke down recently, so I made a trip with Mummy Dearest to look for a new one over the weekend.

We were very, very disturbed at the big-ass electronics store after discovering that some washers can cost up to $2000. I’m not sure about you, but if I have $2000 to spare, I will spend it on something more useful, such as a year’s worth of KFC.

I was thus very happy to chance upon a model which cost under $400. I was also very happy because the sales promoter was a Sweet Young Thing.

Me: May I know the capacity of the machine?

Sweet Young Sales Promoter: It’s 6kg, Sir, good enough to handle daily laundry for a family of four.

Me: Oh! That’s good! Haha, but it’s a family of two because I am still single, haha. . . .

At this point, I decided to impress Sweet Young Sales Promoter by asking an intellectual question to show I’ve done my home work about washing machines.

Me: I am very impressed by your professional knowledge! Before I commit to making a purchase, may I know where is the location of the detergent compartment? I’ve tried looking for it for the past few minutes, but couldn’t find it anyway in this washing machine, haha. . . .

Sweet Young Sales Promoter: . . . .

Sweet Young Sales Promoter: Sir, this is not a washing machine.

Sweet Young Sales Promoter: It’s a dryer.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian
