My mother did that in a moment of madness/desperation with her washing machine, when she couldn’t afford washing powder.

Those bubbles just do not stop appearing, do they?

I think you need to add a ‘but yay’ in that you’ve got a sparkly clean floor now :D

I know I'm not supposed to do that.

Now there's bubbles all over the floor.

Why?

Add salt

Many many years ago when I used to work at Tandy in the Merry Hill shopping centre, there was a fountain in the mall.
On the last day of term some kids chucked a load of bubble bath in there. That was entertaining.

I wondered if there would be a bubble killer. Had to go out though so I just added time and that worked too.
In a daring act of stupidity I did it again, but with way less dish soap and it worked ok this time. I'll stop doing it at some point I promise.

There is a bubble killer. They have it at theme parks to stop/rectify log flumes foaming up if someone empties babble bath into them.

Or do you mean in the house?

Some scamps did that to the big fountain on the roundabout in New Malden. Rumour has it they used over 30 litres of bubble bath, and that it made the local radio (Radio Jackie) news segment. It was big.....

I feel sad that Wookie's dishwasher was trying to call out for help with the bubble problems but the wifi was off.

I have $55 in an old eTrade account. It's linked to a work email address that I no longer have access to ( and I'm not sure the company really even exists anymore ), but they do have my postal address so they keep on sending me quarterly statements. Even if I get in, I think the transfer fee is going to be about half that. It's going to be a whole load of faff to get 20 quid out of it, but i hate the idea of them having my money!

Was writing a work email just now and wanted to include a link to an Intranet page. I found myself instinctively typing [url= before I remembered that Outlook doesn't work like this forum.

I went into an office for the first time in just under a year today.
"Aha!" I thought, "I can take this opportunity to get some documents printed."
Naturally, the first printer I approached tried to print the first page and jammed. It was like I'd never been away.

Apps and websites that won’t let you ‘see’ your password as you type it in.

Yes NOW I am looking at you. After 3 attempts as I could not see where I was making a mistake.

Right-click the password box, click “Inspect Element”

In the code that appears look for the highlighted bit and change type=“password” to type=“text”

There is a simpler solution, though - I just try not making a mistake. HTH, etc.

Raised my eyebrows slightly at the PSCO (as he got the driver to move the car that had been parked on the dropped kerb over my driveway for the past two and a half hours) when he said he was "Not going to write a ticket as it will get challenged in court".

Aldi and Lidl have stopped selling Decaf ground coffee. Which is a minor niggle, as I like the odd cup of decaff. :(

I go on about delegation and empowerment of individuals the whole time at work but that PCSO can GTFO with making themselves a judge!
