le sigh... my husband...oh my husband.. He decided he wanted to start doing a project around the house which means there will be a mess everywhere. Well this particular project involved cutting particle board. Well he decided to do it in the middle of the common area which is carpet. Well I know have shards of wood EVERYWHERE in my carpet. Well he started doing the smart thing and brought out the vacuum. He started vacuuming which was awesome until he accidentaly sucked up a wet wipe. That was a my bad for it not being in the garbage. So he takes out the wet wipe from the vacuum but now the brush part wont spin. So instead of going and looking at the manual he tries to take apart our vacuum. And he keeps saying I dont know how to fix it and I kept telling him go look at the manual before you really break it. Nope he didnt listen. So now the vacuum is in 3 pieces in my living room. He took it apart and then said I dont know I give up and just LEFT it in the middle of the room broken! So now it looks like a BOMB went off in my house with his little project everywhere and I have shards of wood all over that I keep stepping on and its a little painful. RIP vacuum, sorry my husband had to go and be all...husbandy on you and take you apart :(

Lol. Awww. My husband vacuumed up and entire bag of shredded cheese that our son spilled and he forgot about it. So when I went to vacuum a couple days later it was all molded through and nasty. I had to throw it away and it was only a couple months old :(

Quoting Shelby Chappell:" i hope we dont have to get a new one. This was a wedding gift from his mom and we have only had it since May. Oh and its a nice dyson one :("


I believe dyson has super good warranties?

i just hope he didnt mess up the warranty by taking it apart. Im not sure how they work though :oops:
I'll talk with DH when he gets home about it. I didnt last night because this alol happened around 10:30, 11ish and I was tired and too cranky at the time. It would have been a fight I didnt want to start

We have the new SHARK and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! It has a 5 year warranty and you can buy additional 2 years when you check out at wal mart!



I can not tell you how much I love my vacuum! We have inside dogs and babys and messy ass husband. It is a magic wand. I like it more than the dyson, but I have not used the new Dyson that is on the TV all the time.



Seriously go get the shark! It is not even that expensive.
