Beware of clotheslines!
You might think they are perfectly innocuous. They just hang there, performing their service for years on end without complaint.
Until that day. That day when they've been squeezed by that clothespin just one too many times. Or they're overloaded with clothes, and bedding, and towels.
That day, when you least expect it, they will reach out as you walk under the clothesline, tangling themselves in the clasp holding the hair off your neck , and all of a sudden you are pulled painfully back by your head and stuck for a few minutes as you try to untangle the mess.
Protect yourself. Duck further than you think is necessary. Angry, hair pulling clotheslines are out there, and they're gunning for you.
