Jeff, the dashboard on the car is aglow. Smart alec checks electrics with diagnostic tester thingy. Nothing wrong, no idea why it's doing that.
Jeff, the laptops crashed. Smart alec checks that too. Will have to wipe the hard drive, blah! blah! waffle! (I don't do computer speak). What did you do to it? I hear that bit. Nothing, why blame me?
Jeff, my phone charger won't work. Hero comes to the rescue again.
Jeff (this time by text cos I'm such a woss) I think I've fried the hoover. Step away from everything electrical and go discharge yourself! So I can't use the washing machine? :) Result. Don't fret, I'll get you a washboard!
Better go in case I break blogger!
