This is a question "You're doing it wrong"

Chthonic confesses: "Only last year did I discover why the lids of things in tubes have a recessed pointy bit built into them." Tell us about the facepalm moment when you realised you were doing something wrong.

washing machine
my one and only DIY fail, brought to you courtesy of interruptions and MASSIVE DRUGS.

my landlord/housemate had a new washing machine delivered to replace the ageing one that had finally eaten it's last sock. this delivered, i was on a day off, a rare thing between shifts, and being onto the last serviceable pair of undercrackers and least stinky teeshirt, i was in dire need. he grudgingly agreed to let me install the beast, after my protestations of 'i'm not a retard man, ffs, it's a washing machine, done this many times! (true)

as i re-entered the kitchen, i realised that there was an odd clanking noise, over the sound of socks gurgling round in the suds in our new washer.
bemused, i paused the cycle, and opened the door.
as the tide of suds flowed across the floor, i realised the noise was the drainage hose, placed neatly atop the instructions and guarantee, in the drum.
i attribute this massive oversight on my part to the rather generously proportioned spliff i'd consumed in bed just before the doorbell ringing to herald the beasts arrival.
my conclusion is this. as much as i am a staunch supporter of the devils herb and it's free useage, i have to concede that it's probably not a good idea to use it before, or during, doing things you need to do right first time.
