The other day, Troy & I were in the store, looking at vacuum cleaners, trying to find that one they advertise for pet hair. There were two young guys, probably in their late teens or early twenties, looking around, too. It was pretty obvious that they were buying their first vacuum, because each one would read about the features of a model & then tell the other, in a voice that sounded like they knew all about it, exactly why they ought to get that one. They each had a different model that they preferred, and neither one seemed prepared to budge at all. As we were walking away, one of them saw a different one & starting talking about all of the features it had, and apparently that was the one that won, we saw them with it in their cart a little later. I was pretty amused by it, I guess I always thought that guys really didn't care what vacuum they had, if they even bothered buying one. Most of the men I know just go for whatever is cheapest.
