A real Peter Lynn type of story
“Here’s a story you’ll like,” my friend Jo says. “It’s a real Peter Lynn type of story.”
“So I’m doing my laundry for the first time in my new apartment building. I go downstairs to the laundry room to throw it in the machine. And I’m like, ‘Cool! Front-load washers!’ Totally futuristic. So I throw all my laundry in and pour the detergent in. Then I think, ‘Wait. Why is there a lint trap in this washer?'”
“Turns out it was actually the dryer. The washing machines were in a separate room across the hall. I had to pull all the stuff out and move it, and I had to use my underwear to wipe up all the liquid detergent I poured all over the dryer. This Chinese lady totally saw the whole thing too.”
Here’s my question to you, regular readers: Does this in fact seem like a real Peter Lynn type of story? Do I come off as — no offense intended to Jo — a bumbling incompetent?
