Fuck you’re all psychos. :frowning:


#102

how big we talking here? like a mini thing or what?

thought all cordless ones were tiny but then that henry one up there looks like a normal hoover


#103

I sort of agree with you and I never iron. The shirts don’t have creases in them but they certainly don’t look as crisp as an ironed shirt.


#104

Doesn’t take long, and have to having cats. When I had to plug it in, it was right hassle and I wouldn’t bother.

Unless your saying once a week isn’t enough?


#105

OK, the cats get you a pass. I hear that. It’s certainly not in the ballpark of “I’m so vain I couldn’t be seen outdoors with a visible fold in my clothing”.


#106

I think he should use Saps’ riddles.


#107

I haven’t ironed in years. Need to in a few weeks though, which will be fun.


#108

Don’t think either me or @safebruv is arguing that. Rather we’re arguing that it’s not worth the effort to look like Man at C&A. I’ll happily admit I cultivate the “smelly old tramp of the office” look, for good reasons. I am a misanthrope and it saves time.


#109

Don’t you tell me what you are arguing!


#110

between my 2 x cats and 2 x long haired daughters I would be literally buried in hair if I didn’t hoover once or twice a week


#111

Ah you’re reminding me of the regular joy of finding one of Mrs F’s hairs in my dinner, even mysteriously when it’s me that cooked it. Not sure hovering’s ever made a difference mind.


#112

Muting this thread due to the Henry-bashing.


#113

It’s a mini one but it has a long pole on it with the broomy bit at the end?
It’s fine for our 2 bed flat

Nowhere to official house it tho so it just floats about loving life


#114

Might have to go for straight up flying.


#115

I couldn’t even leave the house with a creased t shirt
HATE creased clothes. Just don’t like them on my body.


#116

Getting a bit worried about my typos. Think my brain’s going a bit soggy.


#117

It took me about 12 hours to remember the phrase anecdotal evidence the other day.


#118

I’d like to get a cleaner, to vacuum, remove the dust that accumulates, maybe iron shirts, the normal sort of thing. But the cleaner - I nearly said “she” but let’s not be sexist - would have to come while I am out. I couldn’t bear to be lounging on the sofa while someone else does my housework. I would feel like such a lazy bastard.


#119

Did the same with my Rab jacket. It takes about a week for the down to properly dry, then it’s absolutely fine after that.
