Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 67 Broken


I can’t do it anymore.

I try but after a few minutes I have to give up.

You keep pushing my buttons and I keep trying

But I just can’t do it.

No amount of swearing and cursing will make any difference.


Just get the repairman out….

I’m a dishwasher that needs a new part!

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Thanks for making me laugh - this is so, so true, ridiculous really, isn't it? We spend longer rinsing, stacking and unloading than we would actually spend if we just washed the darn dishes ourselves!

RiverPoet said...

That reminds me. I really, really need a new dishwasher. You could have been writing about mine!

Peace - D

Dianne said...

I'm the dishwasher round here, come to think of it I could use a few new parts

brilliant as always and your doodles can't really be called doodles anymore, they're full out drawings

Daryl said...

Fun .. and true .. doodles? those are sketches!

Dr.John said...

I love these little stories and keep meaning to try one .
Perhaps next Friday.

Akelamalu said...

Ah but I don't Shrinky, MWM is in charge of the dishwasher! :)

MWM was distraught when the dishwasher broke Riverpoet. Get yourself a new one honey. x

Dianne & Daryl those are not my doodles m'dears I got them off Google. I only doodle for Wordzzles!

Handy devices- unless they aren't working...

Mojo said...

Ya know... I never considered that before, but you're probably right. Considering the number of things that can't go in the dishwasher that we wind up washing by hand anyway... what's a few extra plates?

ciara said...

lmao that made me laugh..and the pic suited it so well. oh i would prob freak if my dishwasher broke lol

Ron said...

OMG...this is SO cute, Akelamalu!

I think I've only ever had one dishwasher in an apartment, YEARS ago and I barely ever used it.

(cause you KNOW how much I love to cook!!?!)

So agree with Mr. Dishwasher here. It took me less time to do my dishes than he.

Great Friday 55, dear lady!

LOVED it!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Salute said...

I am dishwasher in my home. And been almost an year since I used my dishwasher. Have a blessed weekend.

Travis said...

I read a study that suggested it took less water to run your full dishwasher than it did to wash your dishes by hand. I don't know if that's true or not.

Akelamalu said...

Precisely Buff!

We put as much in the dishwasher as we can but there's always something that you just have to wash by hand isn't there Mojo? :(

MWM freaked Ciara!

LOL I use lots of pans and other stuff when I cook Ron. MWM often asks if I've been to the neighbours collecting washing up there's so much!

Don't you cook much Salute?

I read that too Trav, I thing its much more hygenic using a dishwasher!

Real Live Lesbian said... very true!!! And I never mind doing them if someone else will cook. :)

Sally said...

That's funny

aims said...

Funny and so true! Still - I sometimes just loathe washing them by hand.

Akelamalu said...

Ah, I'm just the opposite RLL I love the cooking but not the washing up!

Glad you liked it Sally :)

I loathe washing them by hand, it's all I can do to load the dishwasher Aims!

Emmie said...

haha i love it so incredibly funny! well done :o)

G-Man said...

What a coincidence AKE. My 55 had a little to do with 'buttons' as well...:P

Excellent 55 my dear!!
Please have a Wonderful Week-End.

Connie said...

This is great. Love your drawing art work. I love my dishwasher. I love my washing machine too.

Lulda Casadaga said...

Love the drawing! I love doing dishes...I find it very relaxing...I still use the dishwasher but prefer the hand method! :) Have a great dish washing free weekend!!

Mona said...

LOL! It turns out to be a dishwasher! :D How apt! :D

Cloudia said...

A happy diversion!
Did you draw that? Cool!

Mary said...

I think my refrigerator and your dishwasher have been talking.

Great 55!

Akelamalu said...

Pleased you enjoyed it Emmie:)

LOL yes I noticed buttons feature in your 55 this week G-man!

Oh no Connie not my artwork, courtesy of Google m'dear.

You prefer washing dishes by hand Lulda???

Happy to make you smile Mona :)

No I didn't do any drawings on this post Cloudia, glad you enjoyed the 55.

Your fridge packed up Mary? Now that really is a disaster!

MarmiteToasty said...

To funny, I love your Flash 55s you have such a wonderful imagination.....

I could NOT live without my dishwasher lol


Akelamalu said...

Thankyou my lovely Marmie. MWM found living without his beloved dishwasher for a week almost too much to bear! I think he loves it more than he loves me! :0

cheshire wife said...

These machines always have the last laugh!

KB said...

Thanks for putting a smile on my dial with this one. Wonderful job as always.

Just a Plane Ride Away said...
