My vacuum is a Dirt Devil. A month ago, I used my last vacuum bag. No worries, I think - I’ll just head over to my handy-dandy Canadian Tire and pick some up. That’s where I got the vac - should be no problem.
So, since that time I’ve made at least 6 different trips, to 3 different Canadian Tires looking for bags.
I go to the vacuum bag asile. The bags are sorted by letter. “U” is the style I require. I scroll the shelves. Again and again, every time I get to the “U” slot I’m thwarted. Always empty. Never a “U” bag to be found. They’ve got “T” bags. They’ve got “G” bags. They have “A”, “B”, “C” and “D” bags. And not a single “U” bag to be found.
Ok, I think. This is going to require some more serious intervention. I head to customer service.
“Hello, I would like a “U” bag, please.”
The friendly gal checks the computer - “We’re showing 3.” she says pleasantly, and sends someone off to search, as they are missing from the shelves.
She then checks the computer for 3 other stores. One is showing 18 “U” bags. One is showing 9 and one is showing 14.
Great. Surely there will be a “U” bag somewhere. She calls the stores. They do visual searches. They do visual searches up in the stock room. They all hunt for these blasted “U” bags.
Among the 4 stores collectively showing 44 “U” bags in the computer, not a single store actually has one. Not. One. Bag.
How is this possible? How can the bloody computer be out by 44 FRIKIN’ BAGS?!?!
I haven’t been able to vac in a month. I have bunny fur a foot deep around here. In fact, I have enough to make a whole other bunny.
THIS IS REDICULOUS!!! ALL I WANT IS ONE STINKIN’ “U” BAG!!!
