We have been getting those spam calls again recently, but the last one you have to laugh. The wife answered the call, after a few seconds of quiet a foreign sounding voice said "David here from Virgin Media" to which the wife replied " is it a scam call" and the guy said "yes yes yes" so the wife said goodbye then and hung up.....lol

My wife received a spam call recently. She pretended that the line was noisy and that she couldn't hear the caller properly, repeatedly asking was it the gas man, as she was waiting for his call and could still smell gas. This went on for a while, until the caller ended the call ... and then called back, hoping for a clearer line!

I had a call from Virgin the other day and I said,"Sorry, I have great difficulty hearing on the telephone, please let me have it in writing", and she too said, "yes" so I said thank you and hung up. Nothing in the post so far  :no:

After living without a dishwasher for 2 years we finally got one installed on Tuesday.

I have one come in once a week, she also does laundry, changes the sheets and runs the vacuum cleaner round the flat, plus any other odd jobs that I miss.

Grrr. Don't mention dishwashers. I've just had to empty ours and wash everything by hand, while waiting for parts to arrive tomorrow, so that I can fix it. It holds 14 place settings and was absolutely full.

Well when I lived by meself, I only had one fork, knife and spoon.... no problem unless you're expecting a party!

That never happened during my separation years, by the way  :)

I used to think "loading the dishwasher" was giving SWMBO another glass of wine...

Sometimes when I pick Louisa up from work, she will ask me what I have been doing all day. I quite often reply, "Well, I have done the washing up", to which she replies, "Will the machine have finished when we get back?".

One of these days I will feel appreciated.  :)

One task I have always hated is washing the dishes. When I bought my house, I bought a second-hand dishwasher a few weeks BEFORE completion.
