A mate chucked his plastic cup into the bucket we use to wash up on the boat.He knew he shouldnt throw things like that around because they can bounce and get lost
His favourite plastic cup that had been with him on the whitbread rtw race.It was HIS cup and nobody was allowed to touch let alone use it.

He knew
He threw
It bounced
It sank
It is gone
forever

Don't get me started......

Oh, OK then :twisted:


Despite her predilection for clean surfaces and general tidiness, she has an infuriating habit of loading up the draining board so that the wooden chopping board as nowhere else to go but propped up behind the taps.... which, inevitably, turns the ends of it black with mould!

JUST WASH IT UP FIRST AND PUT IT AT THE BACK OF THE DRAINING BOARD :roll:

If I let her do the washing up we would be buying new crockery every bloody week, I think she juggles with it. This week she's broken my mug, 2 glasses and chipped a plate, I'm gonna start wrapping stuff in bubble wrap or buy her a set of plastic stuff :lol:


You've been had. Usually its the guys who figure out that ploy. I bet she "forgets" to buy you the mug and gets you an apron instead. :P
