As I was growing up, I always thought that my grandparents lived in the most amazing time. It had to be marvelous to watch the world go from horse and buggies to automobiles to space ships.
But, now I have to wonder about that conclusion.
You see, we recently bought a new top loader washer and I was so very shocked to find that the washers don't have agitators any more! I mean it was merely 15 years ago that the one we bought had one. I felt comfortable with that purchase. It was a fair exchange of like machines--with agitators and their droll swish back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.
It seems that now there are 'better' ways to move clothes around to get them clean. The machine even senses the weight of the clothes and determines how much water is needed for that load--nothing for me to calculate and press corresponding buttons for the correct wash--just turn it on and tell it what's being washed.
I am truly shocked at today's machines but, I guess I am showing my age. Or maybe it's just the fact that I am not out in the world shopping around very often and don't care to read much about what is going on out there. Whatever the reason, I am sure that both of my grandmas would be calling it all witchcraft.
I suppose the only thing I could wish for now is for an actual English-speaking person to writhe the little manual that came with the machine.
"Possible to select the function for each program. (Example) For a simple washing as the little dirt program:" The need to work on that.
