Tonight i unclog our vacuum and then i go to vacuum and I'm looking and it's just not picking up. I'm thinking darn! The carpet really needs to be vacuumed what else can i do to the vacuum to make it work?!?! grrr. So i think, well i can just crawl on the floor with the hose and get most of it up. So i reach for the hose and I NEVER PUT IT BACK ON!!! duh. so i put it on and went back to my vacuuming, lol.
