What is it with rubber gloves? No, not that type of rubber glove! I'm not talking about the kind you visualise as you smile nervously at the customs guy at the airport. You start to sweat profusely, dreading the thought of being dragged by two security guards into some back room and told to bend over. No, I state again, not that type of rubber glove!
I mean this type of rubber glove. You are washing the dishes and all seems fine. The water is very hot and the cups and plates come out sparkly clean. Then, as if by magic, the mystery hole appears. How did this happen? You do not recall suddenly having this weird urge to poke a hole in said glove.
So you're washing merrily away and you realise that your hand is getting very wet and that the water is indeed very, very hot! You then curse and scream at the rubber glove. This would be the same rubber glove that you cannot remove without the aid of your teeth. This would be the same rubber glove, when it was still intact, required you to blow into it like a balloon just to get the fingers on said rubber glove to reappear.
Of course, you knew you were on to a loser from the outset. You knew when you bought the gloves that stated 'large' size on them; that they would be more suitable for a 'Munchkin'. That's if Munchkins even bother doing the dishes. Probably more interested in some flippin' 'Yellow Brick Road'.
So you get very frustrated with your rubber gloves. Yet this frustration gives you an idea. 'Hey, I've kept some of the rubber gloves that don't have holes in them, in the cupboard under the sink. Excellent, I can mix and match!' So there you go. One pink glove and one white glove. Then the water trickles in.
At what lengths we go to avoid 'dishpan hands'. Not much good when the rubber gloves keep splitting. Even making a wish to my 'Fairy Liquid', failed.
Yes, I've thought about purchasing a dishwasher. However, I recall just what a crap machine the last one was. Ended up taking out all the 'clean' knives, forks, spoons, cups and plates and re-cleaning them in the sink with the rubber gloves that had holes in them.
I've just about had it with this glove affair. What's glove got to do with it? All you need is glove. I'm not in glove. I wanna' know what glove is? Well, at least one that works properly.
So, that's just about it. And remember, no, not that type of rubber glove!
