The Night I Broke the Mop
After I returned from my trip, I realized I needed to clean up a couple of messes the cats had made. I got out my old, trusty mop but the sponge-part tore off. It was worn out.
I headed to the store Tuesday night to get a new mop. I even got 3 replacement mop heads.
I got home and started trying to take the plastic wrap off my new mop. In the process, I bent the metal hooks that the sponge attaches to. There was no way to repair it. I'm tired from my trip. I still need to clean the cat mess. And I've broken the new mop.
I took that new mop by the handle and slammed it against the kitchen counter. WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! Again and again. My temper got the best of me. Then I threw the mop in the garbage bin in the alley.
I sat down for 20 minutes to calm down. Went back to the store. Bought the same mop and returned home. This time, I read the directions on how you are to remove the plastic wrap that covers the mop head.
I cleaned the cat mess and had a beer (or 3).
I don't advocate losing your temper and slamming a mop handle against your kitchen counter but I have to admit, it felt pretty good!
