about our chintzy vacuum cleaner not being able to do ANYTHING with our carpet. We've got tracked-in dirt ( can't convert the hubs to barefootedness, alas ) , cat hair ( and other cat-related unspeakables ), and basically things that make me cringe making the carpet a mess.
So, I was QUITE overjoyed when the hubs surprised me with a COMMERCIAL grade vacuum cleaner. Women's lib organizations around the world are probably giving me dirty looks, but I LOVE my new vacuum cleaner, so there.
I am also reminded of the blender blunder scene from Father of The Bride where Steve Martin's daughter's fiance gives her a blender as a wedding present and she's all up in arms and in tears and wanting to call the wedding off. LOL
