The Week That Wasn’t

JUST DROP IT; MOPPING STOPPED.

“Why does no-one else mop the floor?” asked Aro Valley resident Patricia Jones to her flatmates, in late July.

“Because it’s never dirty,” replied flatmate Aaron McCoy, earnestly.

“But that’s because I’ve been mopping!” exclaimed the bewildered Jones, “I’m not your servant, and I refuse to be the only one to mop, I’m stopping mopping.”

Aaron McCoy said to Salient “I told her I’d mop it if I saw it got dirty, so go ahead I said, stop mopping I don’t care.”

Jones reportedly stopped mopping the floor that afternoon.

“Then one day in August I saw the floor actually was dirty, it was clear that no-one had mopped it for awhile,” said McCoy.

“But I’m not mopping, I refuse to be the only one to mop.”

McCoy said he’d consider mopping as long as someone else agreed to mop too, and Jones agreed to mop in conjunction with McCoy.

“But since then I’ve never had a chance to

mop the floor, because it’s never dirty,” said McCoy.

“Why does no-one else mop the floor?” said Jones, “I refuse to be the only one who mops it, I’m stopping mopping.”

Jones said she’d consider mopping again as long as someone else agreed to mop too, and McCoy agreed to mop it in conjunction with Jones.

“I kind of understand where Aaron’s coming from,” said Jones two weeks ago, “since we came to our agreement, I’ve noticed the floor is really is never dirty.

“So I’m stopping mopping.”

“Why does no-one else mop the floor?” asked Aro Valley resident Aaron McCoy of his flatmates in late July.

“Because it’s never dirty,” replied flatmate Paul Kilmer, earnestly.

“But that’s because I’ve been mopping!” said McCoy, puzzled by the lack of simple logic displayed by his friend.

“Isn’t it obvious?”
