So…this retired guy sits around the house all day…wife says, “You could do something useful, like vacuum the house once a week.”
Guy gives it a moment’s thought and says, “Sure why not…show me to the vacuum.”

Half an hour later, the guy comes into the kitchen to get some coffee. Wife says, “I didn’t hear the vacuum work, I thought you were using it?”

Exasperated man answers, “The stupid thing is broken, won’t start…got to buy a new one.”
“Really”, she says…, “Show me – it worked fine the last time.” So he did ……

When I worked at the big orange box one of the employees came into the break room laughing. We asked what was so funny and he told us that before leaving for work that morning he had told his 16 year old daughter to clean her room, and he specifically told her to vacuum the carpet.

When he went home for lunch he noticed her room had been “SORT OF” rearranged so as to look neater, but she had certainly NOT vacuumed the carpet. When he asked her why she didn’t do it, she said (Apparently with a straight face) ”I don know how to run the vacuum and Mom told me she didn’t have time to teach me”

That’s reminds me of the old story about the woodcutter who bought his very first chain saw and went out to load up his lumber truck.

About eight hours later, he showed back up at the store where he bought the saw. “Doggone thing don’t work worth a hoot”, he complained to the sales person.

The sales person took the saw, and proceeded to start it up.

The woodcutter looked at him and said, “What’s that noise?”

LOL – also reminds me of a joke I once heard about something overheard from a honeymoon suite in a hotel… the punch line was “Suck honey, suck!!! Blow is just a figure of speech”

Walkin’ the line there, Brad!

1/2 the people have IQ’s below 100? That explains shopping at Walmart.

Sorry keifer – seems like we’ve hijacked your thread!

Klaus your using the wrong hand. It’s a left handed model….I have one of those and of course I can’t use it being right handed and all… We have one of those carpet steam cleaners, but it won’t run either – I don’t have a current bush to plug the dang thing into….

Very funny Klaus. This reminds me of the time when I was visiting a friend. He was hoeing his garden and his daughter was just standing there watching him. I asked her: “why aren’t you helping your dad?”, her response was this: “dad don’t have a left-handed hoe”..........true story
