So, the little boy (20-something) comes to repair my non-draining washing machine. “Ma’am, did you know it’s un-plugged?”
Uhh, yah! When a major appliance that weighs more than I do is mal-functioning, I do that. If I learned anything from HAL 9000 in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” it was to PULL THE PLUG on any machine that turns on you!
