    Things you'll never understand

    Our new washing machine kindly beeps when a cycle ends.… And doesn’t’ stop beeping until it is attended to. Gets me up in the night nearly as often as my bladder.

    I will never understand... how people connected to the greatest repository of information the world has ever seen can't find answers to questions that must have been asked before!



    (I'm being sarcastic, but I hope it helps! Google the model number and RTFM!)

    I know what you mean however our previous washing machine was a Siemens - I had two tickets out with their service desk and they were still unable to resolve how to switch the bloody beep off! Having a turn-offable alarm was top of the list of requirements for its replacement.

    Our Samsung washing machine plays a nice little tune for about ten seconds.

    Our beeps constantly while rotating slowly to stop creases from sitting in the machine. Really wish it had a snooze button or was further away. We have the volume on the lowest but it’s still pretty loud. Very irritating.

    Have a look at the instruction book, most you can switch that off.

    Can adjust the volume, but not the number of beeps. Happy for it to beep loudly to advise it has finished & then shut up.

    It has many cycles of beeps & on a low volume I cannot hear it finish in my office.

    Why people use a euphemism for 'selling' - 'moving it on', 'letting it go' and so forth.

    It's not the wife they're talking about here.

    I sell a lot of bike and car parts and very rarely clean them. The buyer gets them cheaper and I don’t spend ages making them look pretty in order to squeeze every last penny out of them.

    It is the houses for me. At least put the stuff away and make it looks clean.

    Apologies if it has been mentioned before....

    Why is it that when you put a duvet cover in a tumble dryer together with other washing to be dried, within 5 minutes, all the other clothes end up INSIDE the duvet cover?

    I've been tempted to try putting a duvet and a cover in the dryer to see if that works - must be easier than putting it on manually! ;-)

    P.S.This has the annoying result of not drying the washing properly - as it can't tumble due to being scrunched up in a sodden ball inside the duvet cover. We've found that doing a few of the poppers/ buttons on the cover is the easiest way to prevent it.

    Top tip - button up the duvet cover before putting it in the machine.

    Or simply turn it inside out when dry?

    You turn it inside-out as you remove it from the duvet, prior to washing (easiest way). Rolling it back on, from inside-out - obviates any reversal.

    People who refer to their Rolex/Breitling/Omega etc as a 'Tool Watch'. We get it, we are all nutters in this hobby and will spend obscene amounts of money on overpriced wrist trinkets but let's not kid ourselves by splashing a veneer of masculinity on it and referring to it as a 'Tool'. There is the square root of F all chance you'll be getting it more than 10 metres underwater let alone using it as a tool!

    Any watch, by definition, is a tool for telling the time in just the same way as a hammer is stool for hitting things.

    That said, we don’t refer to it as a “Tool hammer”!

    Agree, 'tool watch' is a daft phrase. Only exception might be a watch used as jewellery.

    Paneer cheese.

    Tried it for the first time last night in a curry and concluded there is absolutely no point to it at all.
    It is just like a completely tasteless version of halloumi.

    I think they probably mean 'tool's watch'?

    I always viewed a 'tool' watch as being one with no pretence at being 'jewellery', and being resilient to daily knocks and whatever.

    In my collection - Damasko D36, I'd class as being a 'tool' watch.

    But don't get me started on 'beater'...............

    This morning driving to my parents the roads were absolutely minging with dirty water and salt, I had to use the screen washers every few minutes at times. Yet there was a queue of people waiting outside an attended car wash. Why? Their cars will be stinking again within a mile.

    On the subject of car washes I don't understand why after the clean is done the attendant sticks that paper mat over the floor mat. Yes I know to keep it clean but it also makes it nigh on impossible to drive the car without your foot sliding everywhere

    Indeed, and it's just something you have to throw out/recycle when you get home. A wasteful nuisance.

    Apart from going to anything formal like a wedding or funeral, I wear them daily from May to October, and quite a bit outside of those months also.

    Or those that wear shorts but with leggings on underneath, particularly when picking the kids up or walking down the high street. It seems to be prevalent on a Sunday morning, usually with kids in tow after taking Tarquin and Anouska to the park

    It’s fine if you are rolling about on a rugby training park on a cold wet winter evening (I would still not do it but the backs might), if you are that cold on your work out work harder…
