You da man,orange! or da woman.
PB, I saw your problem right off, "... Italian, Slovenian or Hungarian, and I'm in a pickle." Polish or even Kosher pickle is called for in this situation.
I was gonna laff atcha for not bein able to turn on a washing machine
. Then I saw the manual.
Here in the Huge Knighted States of Americuh, we are much smarter than other folks, Canadians come close
. So our manuals are much simpler, they start off with 27 pages of warnings. Do not bathe children or pets in washer. Remove clothing from body before washing. Do not use gasolene or other flammables in washer. Do not stick tongue in electrical outlet. Do not carry washer on back while strolling through park. Do not give yourself a paper cut while reading this manual.
Hmmm, I seem to have the manual for really stupid people, odd that it should come with this fine American machine.
Measure twice, cut once.
Look at the nail, not the hammer. Watch the fence, not the blade.
If you hook your thumb over your belt you won't hit it with the hammer or leave it layin on the saw table.
