A friend of ours mention in her blog that she was having trouble with her Vacuum cleaner. That reminded me of our little vacuum cleaner problem. My wife comes to me and says there is something wrong with the vacuum cleaner. So I start to take a look at it, trying to find out what could be the problem. I start to open up the compartment that holds the bag to the vacuum cleaner then all of a sudden.... I found the problem. So what is the problem you might ask, well it is quite simple. For this type vacuum cleaner you have to use bags to collect the dirt and trash that you suck up but there was no bag. In fact the whole compartment was slam full with dirt, lint, Cat hair, and any other gross discussing things you can think of. Come to find out that since the vacuum cleaner has been in Florida it has not even been check. Now do the math we got married July 7th 2007 that means that the vacuum cleaner has not been cleaned out for over six months! The worst of it is that the machine didn't even have a bag in it to start with. This whole time!

Now that was definitely worth posting! Danielle, I am not laughing at you, I am laughing with Gary! :) (just kidding)

My dirt trap in my vacuum is see-through, so I have no choice but to empty it when it's full!

Great Story!

That is not what happened!!!

I asked Gary to change the bag so that I could vacuum. In the past, Matthew has always changed out the bag at our apartment. Apparently the last time a new bag didn't get put in however. So yes 6 months of trash in the vacuum not in the bag. But it wasn't like I couldn't figure out what was going on.

I'm going to go and kill my husband now.

I'm laughing while I am also feeling bad for you - for both of you.

If you had to clean it you would know how I felt. But I get no sympathy.
