This is a question Mums

Mrs Liveinabin tells us: My mum told me to eat my vegetables, or I wouldn't get any pudding. I'm 32 and told her I could do what I like. I ate my vegetables. Tell us about mums.

We once had a Vax carpet cleaner
the upright one that first came out in the early 90s. It had a design fault (IMO) whereby a blockage would form all too easy in a hairpin part of the pipe.

We took it back to the shop (by taxi) and the manager was having none of it. So we ended up having to get another taxi to take it home.

Later that day, we told my mother-in-law, who phoned for a taxi, picked us up and took us back to the store. We left the Vax back at home this time.

"Who did you speak to?" she said. I pointed him out.
"Right," she said and stormed over. He was already speaking to a couple, trying to sell them a TV.
"Excuse me a moment, you'll thank me in a minute when you see what he's like." she said to the couple.
She then 'gave the manager a piece of her mind' ™, inventing some random consumer laws up on the spot. We could see the manager's face withering and he took less than 4 minutes to cave in before he then gave us a refund, arrange for the collection and stump up for the taxi fares. By which time the couple had cleared off.
