Got any switches in your abode that you don't know what they're for?


#1

You know how every now and then you’ll see a switch in your abode and you don’t know what it’s for? Got any of them?


#2

I don’t think so actually. We recently discovered there’s a loft though. 14 months we’ve been living there.


#3

Gonna convert it?


#4

Not since we had the whole house rewired and stuff. Before that there were doorbell switches by internal doors, cables running all over the place, that kind of thing.


#5

How do you not notice a loft?


#6

have you been binge watching Friends, ant?


#7

Absolutely not.


#8

nope

I don’t really understand all the timer options on my cooker though


#9

That’ll do, cheers Tim.

oh and writing has all worn off my toaster - I know which button is for frozen bread, and which cancels the toasting, but anyone else is in the dark

We’ve got a switch in the kitchen and we’ve no idea what its for, its a three way switch.

When we got the kitchen done last month, we got rid of a load of switches but the builder left that, as it was still wired. So now we’ve got a shiny new mystery switch.

We’ve also got a phone socket in every room, including the bathroom, toilet and garage. Its crazy.

Yes I have! Want to see?

Finding more with each passing day, fucking This Is The House That Jack Wired.


#15

I’m interested to know if the toaster in question had numbers for the different heat settings or if it had some other sort of visual indicator?


#16

Do I!


#17

the phone sockets would have been a real feature once


#18

it’s a dial - so it’s easy enough just to go with 11 o’clock

dial it down to 10:30 ish for bagels


#19

I use 3 for bagels, 5 for toast and 8 (!) for crumpets.

How many more buttons does a toaster really need?
