Have you ever just wanted to give some inanimate object a swift kick out of frustration? But you didn't because that would be a bad example for the kids? But intuitively you just knew things would improve with a swift kick?
Next time, give it a try! It really works, and not just to make you feel better. My washer wouldn't move on to the spin cycle, leaving me with a full load of water and towels...and 4 baskets of loads yet to be washed. I was...irritated. I kicked the washer on my way out of the laundry room and like magic it began to spin like crazy.
So now I feel validated that my intuition was leading me right all along!
