Don't you sometimes wish, rather ungratefully, that they weren't :oops:
My sister offered to help me to hang out my washing. Of course she was quicker than me so I still had an armful when she was finished. She began putting her remaining pegs on the line 'for me'. I find it much easier to get them out of the peg bag as that involves less gripping and tugging but it was a kind thought so I simply thanked her. Next time I looked round she was systematically removing pegs from the bag and putting them on the line.
“Oh don't do that” I said. “It's actually easier for me to get them out of the bag than off the line.”
“I was only trying to help.” she grumbled and walked back into the house.
Why don't people just ask what's best rather than assume they know :roll:
