Are men scared of vacuum cleaners?

Postby tightwadswife » Thu Jul 08, 2010 7:01 am

The minute my Dyson trundles out of it's little cave under the stairs Old TW's demeanour changes. You can hear that Jaws music in the background and see the hairs on the back of his neck stand up. "Not doing that now are you?" Then he swiftly exits along with the dogs only returning when the vacuum returns to it's lair.
I remember my dad being the same, leaving the room and uttering oaths.
I thought it might be the noise that scared them but Old TW happily uses a chain saw and revs his motorbike to some earshattering decibel just for fun. My dad would spend hours drilling things and mowing straight lines on the lawn with a noisy mower but wouldn't go near a vacuum cleaner.
My other theory is that men have defective (or selective) eyesight. Old TW sits there surrounded by the crumbs from the night before, a few nuts, the fag ash that missed the ash tray, you know the type of thing. "Doesn't need doing today does it? Looks clean enough to me" Totally oblivious to the slick of dog hairs on the carpet and the God knows what deposited by gardening boots.
I've spent years puzzling over this. Has anyone else got a theory? :dontknow:
By the way, when challenged to use it he came out with that old favourite, "But you do it far better than I ever could". :-x

Most men complain about the noise a vacuum cleaner makes............................ then they go out onto the garden and collect all the leaves with a Garden Vac !! :roll:
One of the many wonders of the male species :roll: :roll:

That's 'cause the drill (or driller) makes a mess and the women has to get the vacuum cleaner out again. :lol:

Not all men are upset by the vacuum cleaner, I know. I am a male, live alone and have no problem with that most labour saving of household machines. Religiously, on the first day of every year, I remove mine from its cubby-hole, dust it down, plug it in, switch it on and in fifteen minutes flat every room in the house looks immaculate. Next year I intend to do even better, I shall move all the furniture before I start.

M8tey. I just carefully analyzed your response. This leads me to conclude that this is a genetic problem mainly afflicting the male of the species.
Just as I thought. Frightened of the noise - blind to the muck - believing in fairies! Totally in denial.
I hope you're sitting down 'cause I've something to tell you.
THERE ARE NO FAIRIES :lol:
Elmer Fudd. I suggest the fact that you possess a hearing aid and need glasses helps with your annual foray. If you can't hear the noise or see the muck it must be a help in overcoming your fear. What about the leprechauns?
