Sock? Errr.........

September 29, 2011

I'm lucky, lucky, lucky to have ducted vac in the orange house, which was supposed to come with a hose sock, but didn't.  Nooo...its not to keep the vac warm, it's to stop the hose leaving marks on every corner it gets dragged past.

To me, this was one of those do I REALLY care that much about a sock situations.  I'm sure, like me, you have them every day! But dammit, it was in the contract, so I want it.

Well today, after nine weeks of dogged perseverance, I welcome "sock" into the family. Has it been worth the twice (and sometimes more) weekly phone calls?  Probably not, but it had become a bit of a game to me, and I won.  Do you hear me Argus Technologies?  I WON!!!!!

Now I'm off to vacuum....

Proof positive that persistence pays... though in this case the pay socks. 8-)

If only the hose came pre-fitted with this darn sock. It's been like putting a condom of an elephant!!! (at least how I imagine that would be - I don't have first hand experience)

Laughing my head off....can't believe you were still waiting for the 'sock'. As you know I had a different installer and their man fitted the sock...yes, it was like a giant condom.

Big slack of Argus (L&O); I've had them back twice to fix outside pier light which keeps blowing?! and one of the kitchen cabinet downlights which require a rocket scientist to remove and replace halogen bulb.

Bit wet over your side too??

Wet? Think we may have to start gathering animals in pairs!!

Has there been flooding like the last time the display village got a soaking and half Thompsons Rd ended up in our estate entrance?

Reinsey said...

Nooo...no flooding, but a bloody lot of water just laying around our back yard with nowhere to go.
