Ok....so I'm busy with the housework. When DH gets home, he says he will help me and do the hoovering for me. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I willingly accept and go upstairs to clean the bathroom.
The hoover goes on downstairs and I think to myself how lucky I am that DH is helping me when BOOM I hear an explosion downstairs and the smoke alarm is going off!
My ears ringing, I run downstairs in a panic and DH is whooping and hollering in delight :mad: He had wanted to make the house smell nice (it now stinks) so he had sprayed a load of air freshener into the hoover. Apparently the air freshener was highly flammable:4:
Anyway, the top of the hoover hit the ceiling, the buttons blew off the front and were later found in the coat rack and I now have a lovely burnt dining room carpet :signs091:

DH had better keep out of my way for a while!!!!

Well, he really did have good intentions and isn't it the thought that counts....or does that just work for gifts? :D

Really, he's just super duper smart, because I"m sure now you will NEVER ask him do it again. Ever.

can you not claim on your house insurance due to a 'malfunctioning husband... I mean hoover'

Oh my...and this is why I dont have a husband...

Sorry but...

:laugh:

Ditto

Sorry Diane but I really did have to chuckle this, but look at it this way, neither of you got hurt right? And the house is still in one piece. And Dave owes you a new hoover.

PsychoAlice

Dave owes you a whole heck of a lot more than a new hoover

omg what a dumbo but sorry diane thats sooooo funny :laugh: but not about the carpet, is the ceiling damaged too

you know a few years back my brother sprayed insect spray at a spider in front of a turned off gas fire, but what he forgot was he had a back boiler and the pilot light lit the gases of the spray and his carpet caught fire :laugh:

do you have accidental damage ins, claim on that if you do

Diane i am sorry but that is so funny. I am sure you will be able to claim on your contents insurance. I am sure this claim will come up on email people send titled "True but funny claims".

:laugh:

Sorry, Diane! It really made me laugh. Not the result--just your DH's enthusiasm!



I kid you not!!!!! He even tried to shampoo the burn out of the carpet :rolleyes008: it's right in the middle of the doorway too so I can't even re arrange the furniture to hide it :mad:

You lot are so sympathetic :lol:


What about a small, low pile area rug to cover the spot? Depending on the exact location, you could either make it look like a door mat or a runner.

Your DH definitely owes you a new vacuum cleaner!

And he should be on daily bathroom cleaning duty for the rest of the month! :evil:
