Update on the cuteness-devouring appliance

Remember this post? About the washing machine and this oh-so-cute Gymboree shirt?


Ahem.

Ladies and gentleman, I offer you proof that it is your washing machine (aka cheese grater) that should be held responsible for your laundry mishaps.

I mean, I suppose it's still wearable, if you're going for the "I belong to a toddler gang" look.

Oh, my. I felt badly for the repair man who had to service our Cabrio. For the record, this wasn't the only thing our washer had eaten in the last 4 months. Granted, it was the only casualty (figures, right?), but several other of Seth's things, a couple pair of my underwear, and a (get this!) matched pair of Jim's dress socks were also recovered on Tuesday.

I'm now erring way on the side of caution in how full I load the washing machine, and speaking in soft, soothing tones when I power 'er up. We'll see if that keeps her happy.

Oh, sweet heavens! That's insane! I'm glad he was able to get all the goodies out but I'm so sorry that shirt is ruined. It's so cute!!! :(

Awesome! Who would've thought? And to think, we've been blaming the dryer this whole time... LOL

Oh my goodness! I've never seen anything like that. Makes me wonder if there is anything my washer has eaten!

This is good to know! I've had my Cabrio for a month now, and I LOVE it. I never even considered that it could "eat" my clothes! I too, will be careful with how full I fill it!

::gasp:: That's disturbing. Your washer needs some anger management counseling, I think.

I have actually been wondering about your washer! Every time I have done a load of clothes, I have thought, "I wonder if Monica's washer ate Seth's shirt?"

How come you didn't post the pics of your underwear? LOL!!! J/K

That is seriously one of the craziest things I have ever heard...

I cannot believe that! Are they reimbursing you for the shirt?
