My daughter, Heather, was laid off work and lost her full time job, managing 50 people in the fashion industry because the company downsized a year ago (horrible economy in California). Today she starts her part-time job demonstrating Dyson Vacuum Cleaners at the Yorba Linda Costco. And before you sneer, it's a job. Heather has a B. S. in Business from Cal-Poly and a second B. S. from the same educational institution in Marketing. However, like me (and in fact in my house), she lives in California. Even a part time job demonstrating vacuum cleaners is reason to celebrate in this economy. With US$5.00 per gallon gasoline and increasing taxes, there is no indication that the economy here will improve anytime soon.
BUT the vacuums, fans and Dyson stuff is cool. It has nothing to do with my daughter's job. However thanks to her new employer, I've discovered a world of cool stuff that I never would have thought of as trendy, smart and effective.
Can somebody love a vacuum cleaner?
It would seem that the answer is yes.
