You heard it right. My house decided to have its own pool. I got the hint when I was doing my laundry. I hate doing it BTW. The hands get dirty and you have to use so much of muscle power to get the dirt off the collars. Phew! That’s a lot of task. Isn’t it? So I switched on the washing machine. What? Did you think I was going to do it manually? Erm nope! Putting the clothes in the machine, literally throwing in the washing powder and switching the machine on. These all involve in you getting a bit dirty and well, using a little bit of muscle power. Isn’t it? 😛 Trust me. I have my reasons.
So everything was working just as planned. The main plan being laying on my bed watching Netflix. The thing is I got engrossed in it so much that I failed to see that slowly I was surrounded by a 1 feet deep water. I noticed it only when the door bell rang and I put my foot down in search of my slippers. The exact thought? I am so dead.
But Wait!!! That’s not just it. The water had spread evenly (if I might just add) throughout my 1 BHK that I live in. The pipe from the washing machine had somehow freed itself and was doing its own snake dance while vomiting the water. It was such a nightmare. Trust me. It took me 2 hours to soak the water in towel and squeeze it in the bucket because there was no outlet as such where I could just sweep the water out.
Do you think the washing machine took its revenge on me? I think I have never worked so hard before in cleaning my house. Thankfully my recliner and my bed was safe. I should definitely treat my machine with love the next time. 😉
PS: Has anything crazy like this ever happened to you? Maybe you thought it would help you but eventually it just increased your work? Let me know so that even I can have a little laugh or so 😉
I Heart You All ❤

Nice description .Water in the pic seems more like the rough sea .
Well thank god thats its fiction and your home is safe
Yess all is well….But seriously it was a biiiig task to clean the mess🤦 Pheeww.
You can say that again 😂
lol…loss of words you can say…hehehe…
I can understand 😂
Lol. Your picture was more dramatic. I thought you were swimming 🏊 😜. Not too long ago my AC unit was leaking water 💦 because I turned off the vent switch. So I visit the basement after a week only to fine a large pool of water. It was some work for sure. 😀
Hahaha😂 Actually I couldn’t find a less dramatic picture. This was the closest of what I meant to say 😋 Good to know that you had a similar situation 😀
Oh yeah. Had a great time 😀
I can totally understand 😀
The picture was great.
I’m sorry you had to go through all this. Water can be annoying for sure. Glad it didn’t damage anything. When I was a kid, my house flooded quite a bit, and we had to re-do all the wooden floors, because the pieces swelled up, they didn’t have enough space to lay flat, so we had mini mountains all over the rooms.
In my previous apartment, I wanted to soak some dishes, so I put them in the sink, and opened hot water to fill up the sink. And then I walked away to clean the bathroom. Of course, I forgot about the kitchen sink, and before I knew it, the kitchen was flooded.
Feel better yet?
The picture exaggerates a lot but I couldn’t find a less dramatic one. 😂You sure know how to make me feel better. 🙈 You have had more adventures regarding this than me. Phew!
I thought computers were the only machines that have a sensing chip. I guess that washing machines do too. This post made me smile. Hope your home suffered no lasting damage.
There was no damage done. Thankfully 🤗 Glad though that this post made you smile ☺️
Oh that’s so bad. Nothing as disastrous as this happened to me. Poor you that sure must’ve been a hard work.
Ah you bet. I don’t even work out so this was the maximum work out that I am going to do this year. 😂
Ha ha lol
oh wouw….. lucky your house is not like the picture, ha..ha.. when I read the title.. oh my god…..
I guest your washing machine take revenge on you:)
Hahhaaa… I know the picture is dramatically exaggerating the actual incident 😂 but nonetheless it was really a task to get rid of the water🙈
Oh and I also think it did take revenge 😀
ha.ha.. at least you and the bed are safe:)
Tell me about it. It must have happened years ago with me and it makes my parents go ga-ga when they got home. It was babbonary on my part, not because water was out to spaces unknown to me and wiping everything left me temporarily dead, but it was me who proudly took responsibility that I will look after machine after so many warnings. Lesson learnt.
Haha! The scene you mentioned is hilarious. It’s not Everybody’s Cup of tea. Is it? That’s proved for us at least. 😂
I’m not sure whether to laugh or feel bad for you… Although I must admit, my first instinct was to laugh – sorry! Glad your ok though… X
You can laugh. I would have laughed too had it happened with you 😂
Hey! That’s a great story to be told on parties…
Well, a few months ago something similar happened at my place. The valves of the pipes at my sink leaked and the whole bathroom was flooded. Of course, it happened over night, no one recognized it and the water was really high when I stepped into the bathroom the next morning…
I’m glad, that there’s no further damage to your apartment, because water inside of a house can do a lot of damage!
Oops! That’s another nightmare that you mentioned. Yes, luckily there was no permanent damage. Just my hand muscles felt a little tired and I agree, it will be a great story for entertainment 😂
I feel for you! My hot water tank exploded from the top a few years ago. Don’t even know how that can happen. It was like Niagara Falls in the basement!
Oops! That must have been something. On the brighter side you got to witness Niagara Falls sitting at home🙈😂
Hey! I just made a new post! Be sure to check that out:)
Hey! Thanks for letting me know. I read the post and got goosebumps 🙈
Oh my! Glad you survived the tide!
Hahaha.. I’m just glad that you are safe! 😉
Thank you so much 🤗
Whew! Glad you are okay and no damage done. I’ve had some light floading from heavy rain in South Florida but this was also okay. 😬🙌
Oh! I hope you’re fine as well. Must have been a nightmare. Flooding due to rains can be really troublesome 😓
Oh my Lanta! Sounds like a moment of fun and a lot of hardwork too. Well.. like they say, we learn from situations like these. You can clearly blame Netflix, you are totally not to be blamed here :p
Btw nice work with the picture there! :p
Just out of curiosity, who was at the door?
Trust me, It was no fun but all hard work for me 😛 Of course it was Netflix fault. I am innocent in this. BTW when I went to open the door. there was no one. I don’t know if the person left by the time I swam and reached though 😛 Or maybe it was God knocking 😉
This is one experience wirth sharing with generations to come…your children…your children’s children etc.
And there was no one at the door? Was it a ghost? But just imagine if there was no knock…the situation could be far worse.
All said and done…loved the narration of the incident.
