    Making the %#@* washing machine turn all its red alert lights on and the blasted thing stop working - cuz in-summer, washing keiko gi x 2 plus hakama may unbalance the load. Not to mention, coming home from work to find that stinky stuff, since the wash-rinse cycle stopped mid-way - with no chance to get stuff clean and dry by next keiko.

    What a good read this thread was! 2 more:
    252: Spending 20 minutes explaining Kendo to the builder who just noticed the open bogu bag on the front seat of my truck.
    253: Explaining to my client that I can't finish their roof until tomorrow morning because I have to go to kendo training this afternoon.

    248. The smell of bogu and linseed oil when you yourself can't train. Brings me close to tears every time...

    We have one guy so far who takes his shoes off in the car and then walks into the dojo barefoot. I wonder what crap he picks up on his feet before he walks in!

    Taking your shoes off inside just before the dojo floor is so what comes from outside is left outside!

    246: Being tired after practice, leaving your bogu sitting on the floor, taking a nap, and waking up to a dog-chewed kote.

    247: People who leave their bogu sitting around in places it doesn't belong (i.e., me).
