It's Overloading the Machine as in, the washing machine, primarily. The name comes from the laundromat next door. They have very large signs on each machine which say, in all-caps, "DO NOT OVERLOAD THE MACHINE". All in all, there are at least twenty of these signs posted.
Both at the laundromat and at home, I regularly overload the machine, leading to unpredictable results.
Alcoholism is a disease, but it's the only one you can get yelled at
for having. Goddamn it Otto, you are an alcoholic. Goddamn it Otto,
you have Lupus... one of those two doesn't sound right.
