I have been vacuuming for over 40 years, but I certainly learned something this weekend I will not ever forget.
You may need to pay attention also:
Homemaking 101: Never bend over with your long pony tail hanging by the vacuum because your tresses may be sucked into the Impeller Wheel!
So here I was bent over to attach the extender when my pony tail was sucked into the sucky, twirly thing (the impeller wheel). At first I thought my hair was just sucked into the inhaling pipe, but no, it was completely stuck and I could only reach the off switch in an awkward twist of the wrist.
Thankfully, my Beloved was home so I called to him for help! The only solution was scissors. On the plus side: I already have a trim scheduled this week.
Praising the LORD that not much hair needed to be cut off to remove me from the dreaded machine!
