    ...and was she thed finest sexiest thing I've seen in a long time!!!! Tight fitting slacks, well rounded hips, shirt was to short and kept riding up exposing her lil dangly diamond belly ring, and oh yeah the tribal tattoo on the small of her back!!!

    Otherwise she left it here since the wife wasn't home...it would be a joint decision...man are these things expensive! Think of all the bass gear I could get. Actually though does anyone have one of these? Know anything about Kirby? It seems to be a nice product.

    Wowzers! I would think that might backfire on female clients. My folks had an old one, it was really powerful and would not die. I'm on like my 3rd Dirt Devil vac, but I think I'd have to buy 7 more of those to equal the price of a Kirby.

    It's a vacuum! How can you justify spending fifteen hundred dollars on a vacuum???

    My vacuum cost me fifty dollars and has served me faithfully for over three years now.

    My parents have had a Kirby vacuum since I was, like, 5 (I'm 24 now).

    It's always, always, always worked. Never had anything go wrong with it.
     
  5. which came first, the kirby or The Kirby?

    I'd agree, but I have one of those in house systems. I've heard that the portable vacuum cleaners have a fan with sharp blades, so if one were to use it for anything but vacuum cleaning, they'd end up in the emergency room. No such problems here :bassist:

    Bah, when I'm a bachelor I won't even own a vacuum. I mean sheesh, it's just the friggin ground! ;)
     
  8. I have a shopvac I use to clean my pets cage with. I'm not touching that naa-stay stuff.

    I have one, and while it is expensive, it's always worked extremely well. It's built like a tank, and has a lifetime warranty. Can't go wrong.

    I am 40 and my parents have had one since I was about 5. You could apply the same logic to Kirbys as to expensive bass equipment.

    :D (vac & sales lady)


    My Mom has had an electrolux for about 25 years now that replaced the one her mother gave her after she got married 38 years ago (my Grandma upgraded to a new one and gave my Mom her old one).

    I've got a shark portable and a bagless upright thing.... think Mom pays more for a pack of bags then I did for my vac :meh:

  16. I was wondering what a Kurby salesman was doing going to peoples houses. Game Boy Advanced maybe :eyebrow:

    Guess I don't do enough cleaning :meh:
     
  17. I was hoping you'd say "Kirby salesman came and dumped a bag of dust and crap on the carpet- then said 'If this vacuum cleaner can't pick up this mess I'll eat it!" and then say, "Electricity's been out for the past 2 days"

    :p
     
  18. LMAO!!! that was one of the funniest things I've heard in the past 30 seconds!!!!
