Our washing machine is 23 years old already. It serves us for more than two decades. It helps me a lot in doing my laundry because I do not need to handwash the jeans, bed sheets, and curtain. Plus it has a spin dryer, so my laundry gets dry fast. The washing machine lasted this long because I do not overused it too. I only used it twice a week and never forgot to clean it after using. But when my brother and his family moved in the house, the service of our washing machine is doubled. I am not blaming them though because 23 years is more than enough. The washing machine is now retired and will rest soon.
Because our washing is retired, I am afraid I have to go back to basic. I have to do hand wash doing my laundry. Thinking about it makes me want to cry because washing the jeans, curtain and bed sheets by hand won’t be easy. I will see the wound in my wrist again like before. I talked to my father about buying new washing machine but he said no. Makes me want to cry harder and louder. But I will never stop asking my father to buy a new washing machine. I hope he will say yes before the old washing machine will be retired totally. Crossing my fingers again!
