Our poor washing machine, which is probably going on 30-years-old, has been “walking” around and knocking for a few years. She lives in the basement next to the slop sink into which she drains.
The slop sink is original to the house (1915) and very, very heavy porcelain/porcelain-coated metal.
Last week the washer went for a walk, crashed into the sink, and knocked it off the wall. The sink embedded itself into the side of the washer as it fell and they were both killed instantly. It sounded like two Hummers collided in the basement and the floor actually shook from impact.
The crime scene photo is hilarious – it really does look like a fight to the death.*
*I’d provide the pic, but my Blackberry (yes, really!) has recently lost the ability to upload data files. Probably because it’s made out of wood and vacuum tubes :rolleyes:
