Not Sucking... Or Rather, Sucking Well

One good thing about having a job is that I now have the money (or will, once they pay me) to buy things I need. And I have needed a new vacuum for a while. I saved up credit card points for a Bed Bath and Beyond gift certificate and went in with 20% off coupon in hand. And still managed to spend quite a bit, since I went ahead and bought a Dyson. This Dyson, to be precise. It's nice and compact, and the only other option in that size was some no name brand. I'm so glad I got the small one. It was very easy to maneuver (not just because of the famous ball thing, but because of how light it is). It also worked very well for the most part. It had a little trouble with the pine cat litter pieces (not the sawdust, the original pieces). I had to empty the canister twice (the first time it was overfull), mainly cat hair, of course. The cat's weren't too wigged out, so that was good.

And now the house is nice and clean.

Ahhhhhhhhh!

I'll be curious to find out if I'm the only one who can't decipher Dyson's instruction manual -- the one with all the pictograms that anyone can understand...except me. (I've got two attachments I've never figured out how to attach.)

Yes, you are the only one. But keep in mind, my job involves being able to interpret (and produce) visual/pictographic information.

Oh, so YOU are responsible!

For something, certainly. Unfortunately not for Dyson's pictographs. I can only imagine that was less stress than designing and coordinating a building.

Maybe I should go into graphic design? ;)

Anne C. said...

Strike that. It's conceivable that the graphic designer could be (incorrectly) blamed for the rise and fall of Dyson. That would be stressful.
