My boyfriend and I don’t always agree but I like it better that way. If he always agreed with everything that I said then our relationship would be boring. By disagreeing we get to have better conversations and discussions about our respective opinions. One thing that we have been debating recently is what type of vacuum cleaner we should buy for our apartment. My boyfriend really wants to buy a Dyson vacuum but I want to buy an old school Kirby vacuum. There is no denying that Dyson vacuums are incredibly well made. The reviews and loyal customer base speak for themselves when it comes to Dyson products. The Kirby on the other hand as many more decades of loyal customers to back it up. While both vacuums are known to work well, my boyfriend and I cannot agree on which one we should buy.
I am pushing for the Kirby because I have seen it work its magic with my own eyes. My grandmother has a Kirby vacuum that she has had since my dad was a kid and it still works, seriously. A restaurant that I used to work at had a Kirby that they used to vacuum their rugs and it had been in working order for over thirty years. Dyson vacuums haven’t been around long enough to have that kind of evidence to back them up. However, my boyfriend won’t budge. He is convinced that a Dyson vacuum is the only way to go. I am not arguing that Dyson vacuums aren’t great products, I just think that we could find a Kirby that works just as well for half the cost. The conversation has not turned to which vacuum would be the least expensive to repair. My boyfriend thinks that because the Kirby vacuums are so old that any parts that needed replacing would be very expensive. I said that because the Dyson vacuum is so expensive, any parts that needed replacing would be very expensive. We are planning to settle this debate by calling a vacuum cleaner repair store to get a couple of quotes.
The reassuring thing is that I know that with whoever wins we will still end up with a good vacuum cleaner. While we are having fun with this debate it will have to come to an end soon because we are going to have to buy a vacuum before the house gets to be too filthy. One thing is for sure, whoever wins the debate is the one that is going to have to buy the vacuum. I hope for his sake that it is me. Most likely we will just end up flipping a coin and allowing the universe to make that decision for us. That is typically how we put an end to most of our little debates. Now that we live together I have a feeing that most of our debates for the next few months will be about kitchen appliances and various little home improvement projects.
