Mrs. Williams lived in a small street in London, and now she had a new
neighbour. Her name was Mrs. Briggs, and she talked a lot about her expensive
furniture, her beautiful carpets and her new kitchen.
‘Do you know,’ she said to Mrs. Williams one day, ‘I’ve got a new
dishwasher. It washes the plates and glasses and knives and forks beautifully.’
‘Oh?’ Mrs. Williams answered. ‘And does it dry them and put them in the
cupboard too?’
Mrs. Briggs was surprised. ‘Well,’ she answered, ‘the things in the machine
are dry after an hour, but it doesn’t put them away, of course.’
‘I’ve had a dishwasher for twelve and a half years,’ Mrs. Williams said.
‘Oh?’ Mrs. Briggs answered. ‘And does yours put the things in the cupboard
when it has washed them?’ She laughed nastily.
‘Yes, he does,’ Mrs. Williams answered. ‘He dries the dishes and puts them
away.’
