Were you raised in a barn?!


This morning, I started my dishwasher, went upstairs to get ready for work, came back downstairs and found my kitchen flooded. According to Google, a dishwasher uses six gallons of water. Imagine three people standing in your kitchen each holding a bucket of water and flinging it all over your kitchen. Everything was wet. Everything.


When I got to work, I had an e-mail from a co-worker that the freezer door in the office kitchen had been left open all night and everything in it was thawed out.


While we were looking in the freezer, two co-workers came in saying the elevator doors wouldn't open all the way, so they had to force their way out.


Three door problems in 15 minutes.


What does it mean, Grasshopper?

Maybe I should do the dishwasher thing. That'll make me mop.

We are having dishwasher troubles too. First it wouldn't dry. Someone came out and didn't fix it. Someone else came out, pulled it out, left parts off (and in the middle of my kitchen) and now? It's not even hooked up. I thinking paper plates and take away until the thing is fixed. Grr!

how was the dishwasher thing a door problem? Did you actually leave the door open and start the machine? I think that's against the law.

Wet dry vac time! I just had to go check my currently running dishwasher!
So far so good....

I'd be really cautious around doors for a bit.

Baby Sis - My floor has never been so clean.

Just - Grrrrrrrrrr!

Lorna - I closed the door, but somehow it opened back up. Weird.

Ms. E - Yes and it's an interesting theory. :)

Zina - That would always be my preference.

Susan - I agree on all counts.
