DO. NOT. STORE. YOUR. VALUABLES. IN. THE. DISHWASHER

sorry for the non-art post but as hurricane Florence continues slowly through the Carolinas, a hoax that started circulating in 2017 is making rounds again and I’ve already seen it on tumblr even though appliance experts and flooding victims advice NOT to store your important items inside a dishwasher

people spreading this misinformation are prefacing it with ‘’my cousin/aunt/whatever who survived hurricane Katrina said…” so it sounds like sincere advice from a trusted person who actually tried it, and I don’t get WHY they feel the need to lie about something so simple when it could endanger people

A dishwasher isn’t waterproof. It is not designed to keep flooding water OUT.

Dishwashers can also get loose under hurricane winds and end up somewhere outside the house.

People WILL lose their most priced stuff because of this!!

please reblog and tell your friends!!

it’s almost october and i’m still not sober - i’m sorry. i’ve been placed on a pedestal and i can’t breathe up here - the air is too thin - i just want to disappear because of this original sin. so you can see why i don’t want to be caught with my hand in the cookie jar - please just love me from afar. please, look away i didn’t mean to betray by passing out in this doorway - i swear i’m not trying to downplay, i know i’m not okay.
