Friday Puzzler #3

Why is it when we're running the vacuum we keep running over that "hard to get" piece of string a dozen or so times, then we reach down and pick it up, examine it, and put it back down to give the vacuum cleaner one more chance?

Here I am doing this very thing last night :)

I hope you all have a great weekend!

oh. my. goodness! i totally relate! this reminds me of a youtube video i saw that was really cute! the girl was all, "why go over the same piece of paper with a vaccum, when we darn well know that it is too big to fit!" Ha!

Hmm...this is a very good and exciting question. Thank you once again for giving me something other than what I was thinking about, to think about. As you know I love to think. lol. OK. I know exactly what you are saying here and even got a little excited when I began to recall this very thing happening to me not very long ago. Here is my opinion, and remember it is only an opinion, not scientifically proven; at least not to my knowledge.

I believe the reason why we keep trying to pick up that pesky string and then even pick it up and put it back down to try again is because we "EXPECT" our vacuum cleaner to do what it is designed to do and when it doesn't we try to make sure it does. What do you think? Let me know.

First of all, you look very sexy vacuuming.;)

And "B," I do this same thing. LOL!:) The determination is hysterical....It would be easier to pick it up and just throw it in the trash, but I want it in that container!

You're so funny! Thanks for the giggles.:)

(((BIG HUGS!)))
