Sometimes I wonder what my appliances (and household objects) think of me.
I mean, as I scrape the plates and practically wash them before I put them in the dishwasher, I wonder if my dishwasher is thinking "Hel-lo! Don't you trust me to do the job well enough? Have you no faith? You don't think much of me, do you?"
When I get my laundry going in the washing machine I imagine it is thinking "Now why did you just do that? You know that you are going to forget you did it and you're just going to have to run it through all over again. Why don't you wait until you aren't as busy?"
My stove says "Seriously. Seriously? Do you expect me to do miracles?????? Do you expect that you can put a little bit of this in here and a little bit of that and I am supposed to come up with a full course meal with little or no notice? Seriously?
As I put my leftovers in the fridge I know my fridge is thinking "There you go again. Putting that in here to relieve yourself of any guilt should you forget to eat it. You put it in here, and then when it goes bad, you don't feel any guilt about tossing it. You never think about how I might feel. You never ask yourself how it affects me at all......"
I know my t.v. is thinking "You're the one that wanted to watch this show, so why are you yelling at me? If you don't like what's happening, turn it off. Don't sit there and yell at me, I didn't select the channel."
My phone is probably saying "Hello? Is anybody home? I know you're there, I can hear you breathing. Please answer me on the first ring. Please don't make me wait. You have no idea what it feels like to ring and ring and ring, while you all sit there and wonder where everybody else is and wonder if anybody is going to answer the phone."
My thermostat is probably saying "Won't you please make up your mind? First it's to hot, then it's to cold. Won't you please pick a temperature you can live with and just leave me alone?"
Like I said, sometimes I wonder what my appliances think of me.............
