The Joys of living in a Council flat | April 25, 2006

No Washer, No Cooker.

Currys came to deliver my dual-fuel cooker and my washing machine today (I was expecting to celebrate by sharing an oven-cooked pizza with my gf tonight- finally getting a chance to use the Homer Simpson pizza cutter), and it turns out that they can’t fit the cooker (or the eletric part at least) because there’s no spur box (something that apparently goes between the wall and the switch on the wall that seems to have been removed), and they can’t fit the washing machine because there’s no taps on the pipes and no suitable waste pipe outlet thingy.

Let me let out a sarcastic w00t.

  1. yep… sounds fantastic LOL
    so the previous tennants didn’t wash their clothing?

    Can you at least cook some pasta for your gf?

    I wonder what people think of when they come to deliver appliances… never ask, it’s always better to come back again and again(*ugh*)

    *hugs*

  2. There is a hose pipe tap under the sink, apparently either the council or a previous tenant saw fit to use a twin tub washing machine via the hose pipe tap.

    The appliances have all arrived, but I can only use the fridge.
