If you leave your husband home alone.... sooner or later he will need to figure out how to use a washing machine. Probably he will play The Imperial March from Star Wars. May the Force be with all home alone left husbands.
How many of us wash our clothes by hand? Scratch that - how many of us have ever washed our clothes by hand? I'm betting that the answer is close to zero (especially if you're a millennial). Judging by the fact that you're reading this now, you've probably got access to utilities more necessary than the internet, i.e. a washing machine. So what's the big deal? The big deal is that there's a monkey in India that can wash clothes way better than you can. And monkeys don't even wear clothes (well, not naturally). How does that make you feel?
The only good thing about having a roommate that steals your stuff is that if you tamper with your own stuff, they're in no position to complain about your stuff that they deny taking. This is a pretty common tactic. A similar and more explosive thing happened when this food thief's roommate switched to regular milk.
Landlords always seem to promise things like working dishwashers and hot water, but sometimes fall short of their ability to provide an adequate living situation in exchange for your cash. Rent is expensive too, so paying a whole lot to live in a place with a terrible landlord who doesn't fix anything is an absolute nightmare. When this woman's boyfriend was being taken advantage of, she stepped in and made it too expensive for the landlord to NOT get the washing machine fixed.
