50 Word Stories: Change For Change’s Sake

“I like my vacuum cleaners to look like vacuum cleaners not airships, or oxygen masks, or lilac lawnmowers, or frisbees! Bleedin’ disgraceful!”

“It’s called progress, Granddad. Stop moaning.”

“Pfft! It’s called change for change’s sake.”

“What would you rather have, a fancy vacuum, or dirt?”

“A housemaid.”

That’s my Granddad.

  1. Totally agree with Grandad on this one. I might post a rant I wrote regarding silly contemporary cleaning apparatus. I just need the thing to suck up all the filth in my lair, not spread the filth all about the place, nor add further filth. I donโ€™t need it to double up as a cooker or remote control vehicle, nor do I need it to look like I could sail it across the Atlantic. I donโ€™t need it to appear like it came from outer space, nor that it could be easily mistaken as some type of ray gun…
    Ahem, yes indeed. So again sir you have inspired and moved me to be busy. I salute you. x
