Default Why Is It...?

Why is it that if my life depended upon my being able to hopelessly tangle up my airless hose in thirty seconds or less, I would have died a thousand deaths by now? But when my back is turned for practically no time at all, malevolent forces appear to contort, twist, and tangle it in ways heretofore unimaginable by human beings.

Why is that? Why?

I think those same thoughts about my extension cords and my shop vac. How my shop vac cord can get wrapped around the hose and the wheels I'll never know. I'm so very careful with my extension cords. I roll them up neatly and without knots. For some reason when I go to use them, they've magically wound themselves into knot after merciless knot. Ugh.

Yeah, my Nikro hepa vac came with the power cord from hell due to it's ability to kink and twist - should have replaced it long ago. And of course the garden hoses are only somewhat difficult wannabes in that department. But the award still goes to my airless hoses for sheer cussedness.

My airless hose keeps telling me to kill. Does anyone else have that problem?

Why is that? Why?
I know it's a rhetorical question, but it took me forever to realize that the combo of a good swivel & whip made all the difference. One doesn't fully function without the other...whether it's airless hose or pressure-washing hose...having em on both ends makes Troy happy.
