Step 1 – Take the pressure off the hose.
Is that really the way the hose is supposed to look on those racks? When Dad would make me put up the hose I just coiled it in my hand and dropped the coils up and over the front piece and the coils just landed however, as long as the hose was on the rack, I was satisfied.
Arlo got hosed, sad!

I am glad they lost that authority.
HA!! You’re just jealous, Arlo!
There is a trick to it but it is easier with short hoses.
Arlo, replace that solid rubber hose with a collapsible one that weighs a couple of pounds, at the most, and shrinks down when the water in turned off. I’ve a 150-foot hose (2 hooked together) that is super easy to handle. Get with the program!
I did an internet search “How do I know if my wife is a witch”.
“You could’ve just asked me!” – she yelled from the kitchen.
I bet she can fold fitted sheets neatly too!
This will come as a surprise to some, but I am a world expert on hose problems. This started as a child flooding backyard rinks with a garden hose at minus 40 degrees either.
The missing technique is: 1) turn off water; 2) disconnect hose from faucet; 3) hang faucet connection end around hose spool so it is higher; 4) straighten out hose (removing obvious knots as in the first panel) and drain the hose; 5) spool hose around hose spool letting the hose relax the twisting from spooling as you go; 6) connect faucet end to outlet end so that critters do not crawl up into hose while it is stored on the spool.
The atavar should have told you.
It’s all about patience Arlo!
I prefer my nice, all-metal reel that’s bolted to the side of the house.
Panel three: Did the wet hose contact the outdoor electric outlet?
It’s a sad thing when a man can’t control his own hose.
This is how it is done at my house. I can wrangle the water hose and my husband cannot.
She does have a bewitching personality, that’s for sure…..
It is very rare that Janis is shown smarter than Arlo.
After years of working in the theater coiling heavy cables, garden hoses are easy-peasy.
I’d make a remark about Arlo getting kinky and Janis straightening him out, but I’d get hosed for it.
Someone told me she is a first cousin of Samantha Stevens……
If she can do that with an entire computer desk, I’ll not only protect her from the pitchforks-and-torches bunch, I’ll pay her!
Well I have a hose reel. Wind it up and done, but first take the pressure off and leave the hose as straight as possible on the ground before winding up. Same applies if doing it by hand. But if somebody has a better idea please enlighten me. I am a dull guy after all.
It’s a shame Janis wasn’t there to save Laocoon!
My son is now 41, but when he was about 10 he devised a simple way to coil the hose that I’ve used ever since. Store it flat on the ground, but coil it in a figure eight. It doesn’t twist, and it’s easy to just “pull and go” next time without it twisting either. Try it!
Not in North America they wouldn’t for accused witches. Now if you are a black female house slave who murders the white family by poison and burns down their mansion, she and others would be either hanged or burned at the stake.
They were jealous of women then, too
This is like me, but with the big heavy duty electric cords. When I was working for my Dad for his commercial cleaning company and when me and the ex husband had our own company I was horrible at folding up the cords and always made a twist mess of them and that drove Dad and ex husband crazy and it came to the point that they told me just to let them take care of the cords because they were always the ones having to untwist them when I was done. To this day I can not did it right.
