A young couple moved into a new neighbourhood.
The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbour hanging the washing outside.
“That laundry is not very clean,” she said. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” Her husband looked on, but remained silent.
