    That they suck.  All the ones I've used have been nice and quiet.

    I have it on the best authority that one can both suck and be quiet at the same time.

    That they can pick up anything.  I have broken several thinking just that.

    i work with a vacuum cleaner all my jobtime; and i must say they can be fragile. Dont think it can suck up anything you can see.

      (Sigh.)  I see that Big Vacuu has gotten to you. They brainwash people into believing that everything is just fine the way it is, they lull you into a false sense of confidence, they turn you into one of their blind sheep. It’s sad, it really is.

  • No, I have hard wood in my house,  so no vacuum except one of those little baby ones for couches. No big vacuum has gotten to me. Baby vacuum.

      Big Vacuu refers to the entire industry, the marketing, the commercials, the 
    makers, the salespeople, the repair people, etc.

    1.  They are expensive.  You can buy a good one for little money.

    2.  There is no reason for neighbors not to share one.  This is crazy and stupid; do not bring other people's dirt and germs into your own home.  Until I lived a few years in an apartment it never occurred to me that people would do such a thing.  A woman ask me if she could use my vacuum.  Without a pause I said no.  I didn't even say why.  To me it should be obvious why.  And those who allow cleaning people to come in toting their own equipment to clean their homes should do some reading.  I haven't had a maid for a long time but she used my cleaning equipment.
