The Distrustfulness of Old Age

This morning number one wife mentioned that she thought the dishwasher was leaking. The basis of her argument was that the carpet underneath it was wet. This premise was to me far too flimsy. There were lots of other reasons why the carpet might be wet, and so I took upon myself to investigate all of them first.

So, having dismantled the plumbing outside the house and run several tests on the washing machine I was able to conclude, to my satisfaction, that the dishwasher was indeed leaking.

I'm left wondering if as you get older you just assume that things people tell you are wrong, or whether this is something that I've been arrogantly doing all through my life.

The only good news was that the repair, cleaning the door seal, was actually very easy.
