    What!? was he given the opportunity to explain himself? I think maybe he was just "cleaning" out the nozzle?

    My sister had a bunch of polish workers to do some house decorating - she finally put some savings together to do up the kitchen - we had been living in really bad conditions for a while - so she took the advice of a friend at work.

    The polish guy was nothing but a disgusting piece of work. He asked for cash in advance and kept asking more and more amd more sums whenever he felt like it, far more than what he said he would. Then he refused to finish the stair leaving it all uncomplete with the brick work exposed. He still wanted money for it. We had no kitchen for several months.
    He cut the window frame at diffferent lengths on each side, spoilt the worktop - cut the cupboards up as he wanted.

    Then he complained my sister's friend and as his friend was a solictor he kept on sending us legal threats, and squeezed more money out us threatening to take us to court.

    no offense macpanda, but that isn't what this thread is about. unfortunately, alot of ppl get burned by hired contractors. it's a matter of defending yourself and calling the appropriate authorities.

    never give money until a job is done.

    I agree with you 100%. Your bad experiences with some Polish workers obviously mean that all Polish people are lazy and dishonest and, worst of all, probably vacuum cleaner perverts.

    Myself and people I know have had bad experiences with Irish, Indian and White builders which obviously means that all Irish, Indian and Whte people are lazy and dishonest (and quite possibly vacuum cleaner perverts).

    Or maybe it's just that quite a few builders are lazy and dishonest and you should only hire builders recommended by friends and family .... nah, that would be too obvious ... vote BNP! :D

    Thats very true, but come on, dont all the big boys use a "Kirby"?

    I would class a Dyson as a Dell and a Kirby in the league as an Apple :D

    Oh, someone's gunning for the "best thread titles" thread, aren't they? ;)

    *ahem* Some of us would need a special attachment to try that.

    Hospitals are full of people who "accidentally" tried cleaning their underwear in a similar way. A nurse friend of mine (who has lots of gross stories about what people get up to) said this would happen less if people realised that one of the unexpected side effects is a messy and uneven circumcision.

    Coincidentally, I was just about to buy a Henry for my sister, whose Dyson has given up the ghost, but I am having second thoughts if people start attaching a sexual connotation to these machines.

    Pun fully intended? :p

    I also thought it was some urban myth. And if it's 'common practice' in Poland, I worry about what else is.

    Gotta love adsense on threads like this...

    You have to wonder if Consumer reports takes this type of activity into consideration on their reviews?

    Reminds me of Two Pints :p


    Anyway, I'm going to Poland next month. I'll try "hoovering my underwear" and see what Polish people really say about it ;)
