    Also gets rid of carpet. At least the cheap carpet in my apartment. Concrete is sooo much easier to keep clean plus no worries about furniture scratches.

    Hoovering (I love that term! I think I'll adopt it.) helps my back strengthen. Of course , the hoover is not functioning properly atm. Until the money magically appears to fix it, I'll float down the denial river.

    I like how carpet is soft and cushiony and that alone is a good trade for having to vacuum. Least for me.

So I'd have to lift furniture with one hand while putting aluminum foil pieces on the other. And then this ghey mama's boy (trust me, I met his mother) would gripe and complain that I used too much foil, and could I lift it again and make a smaller piece. I put up with this guy (and his screwy hours/days which I was expected to schedule around) for a year and a half. This would nominate me for sainthood, so why is it I have no decent recommendation that will get me a job?

    On the flipside, I immediately knew the best vacuum to get when we needed a replacement (NO canister, no bag, upright mid-size with removable section. That and a shop vac for wet vacuuming).

    Well at least you guys have it easy. Carpets are a pain in the ass to clean especially pets. My stairs has carpets and tugging the vacuum is a pain in my rear end. And I happen to be the only one cleaning up the brush from the vacuum and removing the hair off too. It could be fixed with a product called Swivel Sweeper but can't trust those stuff unless you have back pain. Preferably have a vacuum that has good suction and doesn't lose power.
    If you wish to complain to me that I have a massive ego problem, go and look up 'irony' in the dictionary.

    It ain't easy cleaning up cat gak balls from carpet. Nature's Miracle deodorizer doesn't cut it.
