My Vacuum Sucks!!!!



Where to start?

In my infinite wisdom, I have managed to give myself my first black eye... with a vacuum. Yes, with a vacuum.

It is a stupid vacuum that doesn't even work very well. I just use it because it needs work and times are tough. I can't afford a fancy Dyson. I'll bet Dysons don't beat their owners.

I was innocently vacuuming my stairs when tragedy struck. I was using the hose attachment feature to clean the stairs below the actual vacuum. I went just one stair too far, looked up and saw my piece of shit vacuum hurling itself at my head.



I'm considering legal action.

That's just funny, I don't care who you are.

@dr zibbs-I'm not sure what you're talking about. ;)

@scobberlotcher-Thanks for laughing at my pain! :)

You can't let those appliances get the best of you. Watch out for the garbage disposal as well. The thing is always eating my silverware.

OUCH!!!

Nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like a shiner.

QuirkyLoon said...

Ouch!

I'm sure the black-eye will make for some really nice holiday pics.

Let me guess which brand of vac you have....dirt "devil"?

I mean it is acting like the spawn of Satan...hence the name!

heh heh

MY Dyson luvs me and is used only for good.

Kirsten said...

@prefers-Don't even start! I won't even go near my sink now!

@just bob-No kidding!

@quirky loon-It is a devil!

@kickass-Whatever!!! :)

I would file domestic abuse charges and maybe a restraining order-

Da Old Man said...

You vacuum stairs? Mrs. says no one vacuums stairs, as gravity will naturally let the dirt fall safely to the floor. I think that's waht she said when I suggested she vacuum the stairs. Either that or putting the vacuum somewhere Mr. Orec and nature never intended.

Heinous said...

I hope you hit it back. I mean bullies will back down if you show a little fortitude. Of course, it could be the stairs. You're screwed then, they outnumber you.

Karen said...

Stairs are evil. Vacuumes are eviler. Together, they are the JOKER! Or maybe even LEX LUTHOR!!

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

I also have a piece of shit vacuum and I was planning on vacuuming the stairs before the Thanksgiving onslaught - I consider your post today as a word of caution because I swear that was bound to happen to me as well!

I am in gratitude for the warning...

Kirsten said...

@momma-I never thought about a restraining order! Good one.

@da old man-Well, I don't do stair anymore. Your wife is a smart woman.

@heinous-I didn't hit it back. I go over and over the altercation in my mind and would have done so many things differently!

@karen-I used to be so naive. Now, I know about evil.

@lee-Please don't vacuum!! Don't follow in my footsteps!

I would avoid all appliances at all times. they are out to get you.

JD said...

I can't laugh cause i once pulled a groin muscle washing the dishes ....

ReformingGeek said...

I have broken more than one vacuum cleaner because of the staircase. Fortunately, it hasn't attacked me but there's always a first time. I have never liked any vacuum cleaner I have owned. I've noticed that they are not much into relationships.

Must be that kind of day. I'm painting and I just stepped on the cable for the sub-woofer and broke it. Hubby won't be pleased. Oops.

Kirsten said...

@queen-You're so right!

@JD-I don't even want to know! :)

@reforming-I've never met a vacuum worth the time!

Deb said...

I use my vacuum cleaner to suck up the dog's tail when she flees the room at the speed of light when I turn it on. Good thing the beater bar didn't get you.

kittyconcerto.com said...

Girl, forget about the vacuum. You need to fire your hairdresser, letting you go around looking like that in public. For shame on the entire hair community!

Kirsten said...

@deb-Very creative use of your vacuum! I like it!

@kitty-Thanks for your honesty!!

dani c said...

OMG that's too funny...sorry... :)

Nooter said...

oh i can help, heres what you do: wait until its asleep in its den then sneak up on it and chew off its umbilical cord. your human may yell at you but it will safe after that.

smithjennife said...

LOL!!! That's too funny!! I hate it when your appliances start attacking. It's like they're ganging up on you! :)

Kirsten said...

@dani-As long as you think it's funny! :)

@nooter-Good idea!

@smithjennife-Don't I know it!
