Although we should not judge anything or anybody in appearance I have to admit that he was not handsome. He always wears blue and was not able to do more than just one thing. Most of the time he stood in his corner always at the same spot not even talking. You might think that he was that kind of a bloke you don't want to have around your place.
But I have to say that he was very reliable for a very long time and a good companion. Unfortunately he already had his best time and we had to realise that we have to replace him.
I know that sounds heartless but we cannot blame him for anything. Just because there is somebody new standing at his spot, not talking and exactly doing what he already did, there will be a gap.
It is time to say goodbye to our old kettle.
