    A Very Electric Blender

    | New Brunswick, IN, USA |

    Customer: “I’d like to sell this.” *hands me a blender*

    Me: “Okay, let’s take a look. Does it work?”

    Customer: “Yep, it works great.”

    (I proceed to test the blender. I plug it in and a huge spark jumps from the plug and the fuse blows. I unplug the blender and pick it up to try it in another plug. I notice a puddle under the blender.)

    Me: “Where is this water coming from?”

    Customer: “Oh…well, I put it through the dishwasher. Maybe it wasn’t completely dry yet.”

    Me: “Putting the blender jar into the dishwasher shouldn’t make that much of a mess.”

    Customer: “Yeah, but I put the whole thing in the dishwasher. I wanted the base to be clean, too.”
