Warning: Do NOT put person in washer

Last night, the hubby and I had 4 loads of laundry to do... I know, it's a lot of laundry, but I hate doing laundry and it seemed every minute we had to rest, I wanted to rest and not do laundry. Don't judge me! You are most likely in the same boat.

Anyways, so we were at the laundromat and I was loading the white clothes. As I'm loading I notice this warning label:

Yep, you read it right. It actually says "DO NOT put any person in this washer"..... now this of course makes me giggle, but it also makes me wonder that most likely some person in America had something to do with a person being put in the washer and getting hurt, so they decided that it was the machine's manufacturer's fault for not putting a warning label so things like this doesn't happen again. This person most likely thought that the manufacturer was responsible for someone getting hurt, because you know it's not common sense that if a person decides to go in the washer that they will most likely get hurt, like really? As I was saying, this person went out and probably sued the manufacturer for safety concerns and probably got a shit load of money out of a settlement and now there is a law that all washing machine manufacturers must put this label on all of their machines. You know, like the McDonald hot coffee incident.

The joys of living with idiotic people...

I've seen those labels, it is a little scary to think about the reason behind them.
Good story,

It's like the warning on my hair dryer, "Do not use while sleeping"

Shoot, if I could pull that off, I'd get to sleep in an extra 15 minutes everyday.

On the laundry issue, I still have clean clothes on the laundry room floor and at the end of our bed and over the hall banister. At least they're clean!
