protective film

Just bought a new dishwasher (old one went pop beyond economic fixing since replacement parts cost >£300 from cheapest supplier).

Why in God's name do the pillocks apply protective peel-off film before assembly? Yeah, probably because it's a lot harder to do it afterwards. So the film extends under a tightly fitted edge and doesn't peel off so much as tear leaving a ragged mess that has to be picked out one painful piece at a time, if it actually does come out, over the course of 20 minutes.

That is all.

I really like peeling the protective film off, but this one sounds like expert-level peeling.

There was a degree of enjoyment, initially. But then, around about the time I got my first static shock, I realised that a problem was approaching at the same speed that the film was peeling off.

Next time you get a new dishwasher, send it to me, and I'll peel the film off, and send it back. Just don't complain if it turns up with the plastic all scratched.

OK, will do. It the new one's as good as the old one that will be in about 10 years.

So don't use a rake to remove the film.
