the restless machine  
washing machine, that is.

my washing machine is trying to run away. it's been trying for the past week or so. the first time it tried, mother had put the laundry in and we were watching telly when we heard a loudass *clunk* and a few other disturbing noises. we ran in and saw WM half-dangling off its platform and about to topple over. between the two of us, we managed to heave and shove it back in place (washing machines with full loads of clothes and water can be rather heavy).

just now, mister WM made another attempt to run away. it was doing the spin cycle when i heard the same group of violent noises, and managed to catch it before it made its way off the platform entirely. mother was on the phone and so i stood there countering WM with my body-weight to stop it from sliding further. mother finally got off the phone (after two requests for back-up from me) and we persuaded WM back onto the platform. thereafter, i spent half an hour leaning against this rumbling object so keep it in check while mother goes about her chores. my arms and cheeks are feeling a little loose right now.

properly overload and the WM is not heavy enough to hold the weight as it spin. treat it more gentle lah... :P

Forget putting legs on it. Just pay some fat bastard to sit on it and eat twinkies all day.
