They always said never volunteer....I never learn


Recommended Posts

I offered to vacume my office .  5 minutes and I was done. 

The conversation went something like.......

"You can't possibly be done already"

I vacumed everything. 

Did you move your recliner.

It's not dirty under there. 

You have to move stuff, not just go around it.

But nobody is going to look under stuff.

I can see fuzz under your table. What about your desk? You didn't dust anything.  How did that dog hair get in here. 

Did you let that dog in here?  What a slob. You are both slobs.

 

That's what happens when I try to help out.  See what happens when you volunteer.

You need to put a large air compressor in the corner and just blow everything off and out! One and done! I wonder if they make air powered keyboards and pen sets...🤔!

When we married, I grabbed the Kirby and proceeded to bounce it off her good furniture.

She took it from me and said "just let me do it honey"

Then I grabbed the windex and smeared the windows.

She said "just let me do it honey"

Then while doing dishes I dropped a plate from her good china.

You get my drift....

Kirby - built like a tank, and weighs almost as much.  I'd like to know how many Kirby owners actually use all the features they showed during the demo.

There are time but you have to judge them

A great uncle was on a troop ship back from Europe after WW1.  It pulled in at Durban and they were marched off and lined up on the dock.

The call was made for "Volunteers to cut firewood".

Uncle observed that no one moved, reasoned that one man wasn't going to cut much wood,  volunteered and got a leave pass to the city for the day.

Continually offer, continually fail, eventually they stop trying to get your help leaving you free to pursue activities of your choice 😉great start!

One group of ladies came selling vacuums once to our house. Biggest selling point they repeated was the vibrating handle. Yup.... Now you guys can think on that a little...

Are you sure it was vacuum cleaners they were selling? Was any demonstrations involved?

If wife had a vacuum that the handle vibrated I'd be in the doghouse telling MTO to move over.

Y'all are looking at it from one point of view, I learned cleaning a room/house/car vacuum under everything move everything then swifter everything, then the mirrors and the inside windows, then pledge the furniture and swifter the fans or light fixtures and look for any dust on the knick knacks ( where the duck did a knick knack name come from ) and in the ceiling corners, but I've been called ocd also, you can eat off the engines of my vehicles.

Trust me, I would NEVER have you to wear a french maid outfit. I am sure that would be a early start to the horrors of halloween.

We were visiting my kid up in likely bc a few years ago he was driving skidder so had to get up early, every morning he had to check under his company truck because the squirrels would stock inside the rad shroud with nuts, we were there for a week and the truck just sat so when I went to fire it up we checked and they had a bloody nest going under the hood, little buggers.

In the first IH dealership I worked for, the girl in the office mowed the lawn on an old rider.

I sharpened the blade for her and took it for a spin after.

The thing vibrated so bad I could hardly stay on the seat.

I wanted to fix it but the shop manager had offered and she wanted it left alone.
