The vacuum cleaner rebellion.

I was so happy when I found out that my house at Rochester was carpeted. I thought “Good, I won’t have to mop anymore.” Turns out, the vacuum cleaner that me and my housemates bought wasn’t necessarily the most effective.

Our first day cleaning the new house, me and my roommate spent more time trying to figure out how to use it, than actually using it. First of all, the vacuum cleaner didn’t bring any instructions of how to assemble it. We did our best putting all the pieces together as we thought they were supposed to be.

This is an example of poor instructions or in this case, no instructions at all. We managed to put all the pieces together, but the vacuum kept disarming when we were using it. We tried to put one piece back and another piece fell apart. Nothing was broken and we put all screws where we thought they were supposed to be. Nothing changed.

Also, if you’re not going to give any instructions, at least MAKE THINGS VISIBLE!. I still think there should be a way of putting every part together so that they stop falling apart, but I guess we’ll figure it out eventually.
