English: Advertising postcard, picture side, for the “Happy Day” washing machine, sold by the National Sewing Machine Co. of Belvidere, Illinois. Opposite side of unmailed card shows boilerplate message: “Dear Madam:/ If you will try the ‘Happy Day’ Washing Machine, you will surely buy it, because it operates so easily and cleanses so very thoroughly.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today we threw $99 at a washing machine fixer. The diagnosis: overloaded machine.

A few months ago, we tossed $99 at a washing machine fixer. The diagnosis: heavy sleeping bag overloaded the machine.

About six months ago we pelted fistfuls of cash at a washing machine fixer. The diagnosis: putting too much into the washing machine at the same time, which overloaded the machine and put too much strain on the motor.

Last year we flung half our bank account at a washing machine fixer. The diagnosis: yes.

When I opted out of doing the laundry about 30 years ago it was because there were zillions of spiders in the basement and I couldn’t stand going down there. We’re in a different house now (centipedes).

When the cost of replacing sweaters washed in scalding water outweighs my dislike for insects on my legs, I will start doing laundry again.

When the cost of replacing the washing machine motor outweighs the pain of reading the directions on the lid, we will enjoy a little monetary savings.

Til then, if you need cash, consider taking up washing machine repair and moving into my neighborhood.
