I loaned my trusty vacuum out a few days ago. While I don’t have a problem with it, the least the borrowing party could do (you would think) is to clean it before returning it, right? Hmmmph…. They have already been told “you can borrow it anytime as long as you take care of it while it’s in your possession. If you break it you will buy it back” That’s fair isn’t it?
Well this last time the vacuum cleaner was returned I noticed it wasn’t pulling. Did I mention these people have 6 cats? Yes, so you could just imagine what goes into my vacuum. Anyway, so the vacuum wasn’t pulling and it sounded different. I knew there was a clog, but where? I checked the hose for the hand tools, that was clear. So this morning after trying to clean up a few waffle crumbs from off our carpet and realizing she couldn’t even pick those up I got to work.
Well I found the clog and this is what I pulled out.
My tool of choice (hehehehe) Yes a rusty ice pick
I just kept pulling and pulling out ball after ball. It was nasty. Dust and cat hair. Perfect for my allergies. Grrrr…….
Yes I believe this is what caused the clog because that hair clip was stuck in the hose so the hair balls couldn’t pass through and it just got worse from there on. I also found a marker cover, a tiny dinosaur and another one of those rubber band thingys. There was also a rubber band tied around the brush. Looks like we’re going to have another talk this afternoon.
