Why Won't My Dyson Vacuum Cleaner Die?
What's your view of the consumer society? For example: the idea that when you want something you buy it; or if you haven't got the latest thing you go out and get it. I know I can't do it. If something works perfectly well I simply can't change it just because there's a better one. So, to my confession: I hate my Dyson Vacuum cleaner; but it will not break; it stubbornly refuses to die; just continues right on going in its rugged, no-loss-of-suction way. I've tried neglecting it: refusing to clean or change its filters; allowing bits of it to drop off; leaving holes in the pipes. But every time you switch it on it jumps up like a spaniel dog eager to do your bidding. But I really do hate it: I hate it being so heavy and cumbersome; I hate it being so clumsy and useless on the stairs (and we do have a lot of stairs).
If someone were to come along with a nice new Miele Vac (just as an example you understand), perhaps a new model that needs an honest and thorough review by a blogger; I could, I suppose, put the old one in a cupboard without guilt. So if you are passing by my blog and consider yourself to produce a rival cleaner to Dyson, or even if you are James Dyson (look I even included your picture) and think you could convince me to love your latest model, get in touch. Please.
