I really should have known better than (again) to let the Old Man buy it when we needed an appliance replaced. I should have remembered how, when my Sunbeam Mixmaster 'died' (at long last), he went out to replace it. He brought home a new mixer, all right, and proudly showed off his purchase. I took one look at the contraption as he basked in a glow of virtue . . . "Why did you get that Harley-Davidson mixer?": I asked him hotly. Well, it's been known as the "Harley-Davidson mixer" ever since. And I do not operate it. It is now Hubby's job! (I do have a hand mixer, which I use for 'little' mixing jobs that cannot be quickly done by hand (sans machine).
Then, we wound up needing a new vacuum sweeper a while back. This morning, he got it out for a quick clean-up chore, and I was reminded once again of my mistake in letting him buy the replacement. Never mind the brand name, let me simply tell you that our vacuum sounds just like a Boeing 727 jet whose engines are being "revved up" just prior to take-off.
(At least, we own one of the quietest automatic dishwashers available these days. I led THAT shopping expedition.))
