I recently bought a Shark vacuum cleaner. When I laid all the pieces out on the floor there was an extra attachment that wasn’t listed in the manual. It didn’t seem to fit anywhere.
After I finished assembling the vacuum cleaner, this mysterious attachment was left over. And worse yet, it seemed to have an attitude! When I tried to collect all the packaging to put in the recycling bin it actually growled at me.
Even though I am love with the vacuum cleaner itself, I’m going to have to contact Shark and complain about this extra attachment. I mean really, they should have a better quality inspection system!
As the day progressed, things got worse. I had scrubbed the bathroom and washed the bathroom rugs. Next thing I knew, the unidentified attachment had scrunched up my nice clean rug to take a nap!
Surely this was the end of the havoc. But no!!
Believe it or not, the worst was yet to come. I went to bed early as I was tired, I woke up at 11:00pm and remembered I had not turned off the computer upstairs in my office. Coming back downstairs I was groggy and made the bad decision not to turn on the light in the stairwell. The last thing I remember is feeling something furry and squishy under my feet.
I took a nose dive down the stairs and ended up sprawled in the cats’ drinking fountain at the bottom of the stairs! I didn’t hit my head but I was in shock feeling the water sloshing around me, hearing the pump working and wondering in my daze if I would be electrocuted!
Fortunately, I am still here to tell the story. All I can say is, when you buy a vacuum cleaner with fancy attachments, make sure you check out the box very thoroughly and if anything doesn’t look right, be very careful.
Of course, Frankie thought this was all very funny and here he is having a good laugh. And my gentle giant, Freddie, just taking it all in his usual laid-back style.
But I do want to thank Frankie for being a good sport about his participation in this post and, of course, to Freddie for being his usual patient self with all of Frankie’s hijinks.
