Jethro Jaws is my Shark Cordless sweeper. He had a swift and painless passing...just stopped working in the middle of a dog hair emergency. It was his battery pack...they only last two years. No problem...as Jethro has a sister who is nameless. Charged her up...OMG. She has passed on also. Two fibro 'must have's' gone in one day! I loved Jethro as he only weighed about a pound and was great on hardwood floors where the dog hair lingers in huge clumps...I have even picked up gravel and nails with him. Furthermore, when his handle broke, I duct taped it back together, and he kept on...kept on.
I went to Bed Bath and Beyond to replace him...the latest models are NOT Jethro. New and improved with turbo settings and all kinds of features that add weight and confusion to a fibromite. Before I bought it, I decided to go to K-Mart and see if they had a more simplistic model. They did...but even it had a handle that bends and twists when you push a button. I bought it anyway and don't like it. It won't swivel.
I hate 'new and improved'. My 'new and improved' moist heating pad died after six months.
I would like to open a 'fibromite' appliance store. How would THAT fly...LOL!
