Q: Does your washing machine tie your clothes into a big knot?

Mine does.  If there was ever a need to tie all your clothes into a big knot, this machine would be perfect.

You have to learn to be more like the Chinese, tie your clothes in a knot before washing them, the washer will untie them, makes sense? TIC.

You probably cant read it because its a cheap chinese washing machine, but you probably have unwittingly hot the " secret, fire escape" button.  It happened to me, no big deal. Rookie mistake.  Just remember where it is, for when the blaze comes, having all your clothes tied together makes an enviable rope. Just tie it to the railing and escape to freedom.

Thank you Sanyo washing machine! Another life saved.

yes, and its a b!tch to untie sometimes.  i bought these oversized weird plastic balls with jagged edges to throw in the wash with the clothes.  it helps separate them.  it works a bit, but not a complete fix.

Yes it does. But for once I would say that China abides the laws of physics. It seems there is an even greater tendency for things to get properly tied together if it is some of the wifes clothing that is easy to rip apart. 

Perhaps this is a problem of top loading machines. It never happened for me with front loading machines. 

 

It's convenient though, just yank on a sleeve and you have all your laundry out of the machine.

I had 3 or 4 different washing machines and never encountered this. From the sound of it, I'm pretty glad I didn't.

  No, she dries them, folds them and packs them neatly in my wardrobe. Just don't tell her I call her my washing machine.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
