Appliances - Obstacles to Avoid if One is an Apparition

[ Edited ]

For ghostly beings like me, there are surprising amounts of obstacles you have to avoid or circumvent when haunting your own home. It can be tricky to work around these contraptions the humans call appliances, and while I’ve overcome a couple of them, some still elude me despite my years of expertise.


  • Refrigerator – You wouldn’t necessarily think this would be something you’d have to worry about, but oh no! One wrong move when opening the door, and the next minute, your ghostly self is trapped inside its icy cage. After trying to dispose of some incriminating evidence of my existence by freezing it (see here for more), I was most unfortunately imprisoned and ended up destroying the inside of the appliance. I would highly recommend doing this if you find yourself in this position, as this caused my human to buy a new fridge that is what they call “kid friendly”.  It has an easy open door, and I’ve been able to escape ever since.
  • Dishwasher – I don’t do it on a regular basis, but when I have extra time on my hands, I love to put water stains on the dinnerware when it is set out to dry overnight. Recently though, my attempts have been thwarted, as the human has just purchased a new dishwasher!  They all stay cocooned in that magical hole in the cabinet, and I can’t figure it out. I would greatly appreciate any insights from my fellow ghosts!
  • Dryer – As much as I like this appliance (it takes the blame for my sock thievery), I’m currently plotting its demise. The human has begun trying to capture my ghostly image on camera, and the dryer’s steam makes me more susceptible to human eyes! My first thought was to trap myself inside the small compartment that holds the clothes to destroy it as I did the fridge, but I worry I will never get out…
  • Vacuum – Don’t even get me started on this one. We used to have a simple upright vacuum, and to be honest, it was rather fun to turn it on and chase the cat around the house. To this day, I’m not sure what happened. I just floated by the hall closet to retrieve it one day, and to my horror, it was no longer there! After frantically searching the house for it, I discovered this creepy thing that moves along the carpet like magic! The humans call it a Roomba, but I call it the “Destroyer of all Things Fun”.  Unfortunately, I have yet to learn its ways.  Whenever I get close to it, it seems to sense my presence and flees as if running for its life.

For more of my daily life, float on over to the Camcorders & Cameras board. If you’d rather hear the other side of the story, read my human’s perspective over on the Computers & Tablets section.
