“When all else fails, read the instructions.” The old man used to view instructions as a last resort, each set a challenge for him to best.
Sometimes I’m good at receiving instruction; often I too will think I have a better way of doing things. Why would you not do it the easy way? Or the obvious way?
Then there are the things I’ve been doing the wrong way for so long that I’ve forgotten there is a right way.
Today I was reminded that there is a right way to wash bras.
A clue for the uninitiated- it’s not in the machine.
The hassle and the expense pain me.
A new undergarment, ripped to shreds on first contact with the washing machine. I can’t even bring it back to the shop.
