Help! I Lost My Mop And The Floor Is Sticky
You may say how can a person lose their mop? I can and I did. Was I riled, I just bought this new mop because John broke the handle on my other one. It is the kind you can take the mop off and throw it in the washing machine. I like the squeezing part so I didn't have to get my hands wet. After mopping I always hung it on the clothes line to dry before putting it in the garage. Always where it belonged either on the line or in the gargage, a no brainer, right? When John started to mow the back yard he didn't want the mop handle to hit him in the head so he slid the handle into the pipe cross bar of the clothesline pole. Hummm I think this is a good place to keep it. Dryed out and out of the way and always where it belongs. Sooo today my feet are sticking to the kitchen floor everytime I walk. Get that bucket of hot water and ready to tackle sticky and no mop. I look at the clothes line pole several times and it just isn't there. I go to the garage several times and look. Not there and I'm more then riled. Who would steal a used mop? Finally in desperation I walk to the clothes line to look on the side of the house. I see something that looks like split pieces of paper in the end of the cross bars of the clothesline pole. Humm I think the birds have been making a nest in there again and John has stuffed paper in there to stop them. DUH! Then it dawns on me that is the end of the mop not paper. Some how the mop handle was pushed all the way into the crossbar and all but hid the entire mop. I was so relieved and mad at myself I put the bucket and mop in the garage and the floor is still sticky.
