My Prized Possession

Anyone who knows me, know that I love my Dyson vacuum cleaner.  Practically a walking infomercial, my compact telescoping Dyson is as cute as a pet, and as powerful as a beast, strong enough to suck up the electro-magnetic cat fur and my own extra long locks.  Seeing the muck spin around in the clear canister makes it all the more satisfying.  It’s the best thing in the world…almost.

In a fit of rough handling, I broke one of the telescoping rings in the hose.  A small plastic thingee no bigger than a napkin ring, it is an integral part for the telescoping action of the neck.  I thought that it would be a simple repair, but when I called Dyson, they told me that I had to get a new wand, which seems absurdly wasteful.  On the website, the wand is $84, and it can’t be shipped to New York.  Just plain absurd.

My solution was to skip Dyson altogether and buy the wand on EBay, they can ship anywhere.  This worked and for less than half the price.  I didn’t have to wait long, and it arrived in pristine condition.  The only thing better than the ease of this transaction was the ease of replacing the wand.  A simple release and click, and it’s done.  It’s the best.
