My Vacuum Sucks!
It's usually a good thing when your vacuum sucks! Over the weekend, I was in a cleaning frenzy. On Saturday, everything in the house got cleaned. The last thing I did was vacuum and I was almost done when I heard this loud crunching metal on metal sound. As I looked down, I saw my phone charger cable had been swallowed by my Oreck!
I turned the vacuum off, unplugged it and sat on the floor trying, in vain, to untangle the cord from the vacuum, I was obviously on the losing end of that battle. So, I decided to get the tool box and perform a "cablectomy." I took a pair of wire cutters to the cord and began snipping away. After a few cuts, I was able to pull all the pieces of the cable out of the roller. I knew I was going to have to pay a pretty penny for a new cable at the phone store. But, my first stop was to pick up some items I needed at Bed, Bath and Beyond. In the checkout line, I looked down and saw....yup... smartphone cables! That store really is 'beyond' the bed and bath!
