To really fucking hate him?

There is this guy in my life called Henry. He's not as slim or stylish as a "younger model", his face is always red too which looks really unattractive. However, his...attachment is rather large.

We got on really well in the early days when everything was brand new, but now I don't like it when he shows up. He's always getting in my way and I'm always banging into him. If it's not the smell he leaves behind, it's small crumbs or dust. He's noisy and don't even get me started on when he gets bunged up.

AIBU and should I LTB?

Is this one of those tedious album based on a book or a film or something?

I hate Henry too. His sister Hetty is also a bitch.

I had a Dyson in my life that was doing that. Fortunately I was able to take him apart, and give him a good wash. He is now behaving perfectly.

I love Henry but he's crap at stairs.

My Henry lasted 12 years and it was my nans before. He's still going but I want a replacement as his er attachment has a hole in so I have to hold it to make it work.

There was a thread before about another guy called Henry. He used to fall over at inopportune moments and lie there staring smugly at people who grasped his attachment.

God, I hate the bastard too. Knocked half my front tooth out pulling the plastic attachment off the shitting thing. The metal pipe whacked into my mouth and it's razor sharp. If I had the spare £ I'd definitely be LingTB.

I have a love hate relationship with that Hetty, better than the brand new dyson we upgraded to though !

DaviesMum Thu 22-Dec-16 12:34:17

I worry about getting charged with domestic appliance violence, as I did kick him down the stairs in a fit of rage angry

He sounds like my ex. My latest I called Max, sorry I mean Vax smile

How DARE you. I know the fella you're talking about. Hard working and eager to please. Heavy though. But I couldn't live without him
<huffs> if he's not good enough for you, set him free to live with someone who will appreciate him!

My mum had a Henry. He was shit. She spend more time sweeping behind him with a dustpan and brush hmmgrin
Get yourself a shark rocket. Amaze balls smile

He is very annoying, I mean why can't he just flow through the house with you, damn thing is always toppling over. But no matter how many times I shut him away in the cupboard and replace him with a newer model, I always end up going back to him.

Just don't replace him with a Dyson digital, absolute shit. All it's good for is hoovering up a few light crumbs, anything else is beyond its capability.... I wish I'd bought a £5 brush and shovel set instead and saved myself £245 😡

We love Henry. He managed to deal with the bedding our degus throw on the floor on a daily basis.The other ones all failed including a hoover, a vax and a dyson. I wouldn't live without our Henry anymore. My house is clean and tidy. Change his bag once a week. No other emptying or blocked pipes. Henry is my king

I'm just about the grab my Henry's attachment now and give him a good workout...

BastardGoDarkly Thu 22-Dec-16 12:45:38

I've got his sister, she's a bit of a tit on the stairs, its true, but I love her, especially since I treated her to a perfume disc, she stopped smelling of dog.

Sadly I think it is - usually posted by someone who thinks they are tres hilaire

MikeUniformMike Thu 22-Dec-16 12:47:06

I think you should stay with Henry. Sounds like he's hung like a hoover.

YetAnotherUser Thu 22-Dec-16 12:47:34

Henry is a wimp.

I have his bigger brother George!

Only this appears to be about a vacuum cleaner so even more bizarre...
