The Government should do something about this

I do not claim to be very political in any way. In fact, if politics come up in a conversation, I try to not say anything because I really don't keep up on things enough to have a valid point of view. I'm a single-issue voter (ok, two issues) and that's that.

However, I have found something which needs immediate attention from the government. Seriously, if they can bail out the bank business and car business, then they can certainly bail out something small, like- my vacuum. I think my vacuum is silly and I need a new one. But, I don't want to buy one myself.

What is wrong with my vacuum, you may ask?

I'll show you:

It's that instruction on front of the vacuum:

"Change bag when red."

Do you see that picture? At the moment I took the picture, the vacuum bag was overflowing. The instruction should have read:

"Change bag when red, but make sure you view the color window only while vacuum is on. This means that you have to bend down and look at it while you are vacuuming, which makes no sense. This will probably take you 3 years to figure out. Meanwhile, you will have a vacuum that doesn't work half the time, because, unknown to you, the vacuum bag will be full, even though every time you turn off the vacuum to look, it says it's empty."

Obviously, the government should have been overseeing the Vacuum business, making sure the instructions on vacuums make sense. This has not been happening. So, this post is my not-so-official plea to my lawmakers to send me a check so I can get a new vacuum.

We have a vacuum we are trying to sell...if you are interested. It is practically brand new and sadly underused. No complicated red lights or anything like that :)

p.s. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. It made my day.

p.s.s (or is it p.p.s.??) You are funny!
