Blaming the tools

Some people are either too irrational to be allowed out alone, or they're intent completely obsessed with blaming anything but themselves ...

Recently, my mother has been complaining about numb fingers and a lack of grip in her hands.

(This wouldn't be because I've been suffering with pain in my hands and wrists, for which I've had them supported, because I was also losing power and grip and am concerned about developing carpal tunnel syndrome, could it? If I have a headache, she has a brain tumour ...)

Anyway, she buys some new cloths for use in the kitchen. A different type than the old ones, because she says, they haven't been wiping up very well lately.

The cloths have become inefficient. You reckon? I reckon they've been working exactly the same way for years. You don't think maybe there's nothing whatsoever wrong with the cloths and it's just probably that she (and I) can't wring them out as well as we used to?

You watch, these new cloths will be "no better"! :-)

That's not to say that I don't have a few words to say about the shoddy tools (what there are of them) in the kitchen, but I'll save that for another time.
