The story of October 20th - Part 1

I'm about 99% sure that there isn't a song that describes this...

So I'm living off campus at OSU in a house. A house that conveniently comes with Washer/Dryer hookups. Morgan decide to go out and get us a washer and dryer so that we don't have to go to the dry cleaners.

Well, the washer is a nice big Heavy Duty refurbished washer. But the dryer... well, it leaves something to be desired. It's brand new, but only $150, so you can assume how small it is. The knobs and stuff are even on the front of the dryer because theres no panel on the top of it. It's just a little cube. Yes, I realize I could take and/or find a picture, but I'd rather make use of your skills of imagery.

So we've had this for about a month, and things are drying progressively worse. At the beginning, just putting 3 pairs of jeans in would take an entire cycle of 'more dry' to get them dry. However, by now, it was down to a cycle and a half or so. Well Alex had stopped by to distract me from studying or something, and we went down to look at it.

After careful consideration, I realize that I've never emptied the lint tray. But wait... the lint tray isn't where it always is on all dryers on the front, because its such a compact little cube. Alex decides to look inside, and we find this compartment in the back that pulls out. After some struggling, we get it... and the behemoth lint out...

Wow, that's a big piece of lint, but a simple picture doesn't do it justice. That's why I have size comparative pictures!

Here is the lint next to an X-Box (which are quite large incase you didn't know):

And vertically next to a 1.5 liter handle of Bacardi Rum... (I'm a college student, I work with what I have):

Here's also it compared to a gatorade bottle, as well as an overhead picture.

However the ridiculousness of the day was only half completed, as you'll find out in part 2.

    Since you have 3 people living in your house (if you do the math 1/3 x 3) calculates out that your household is not 100% wrong for not knowing that all dryers collect lint and they need cleaned out regularly. Although there was another party assisting in the event does lead to underlying circumstances. Hilarious Blog though!
