About two months ago, Blaine picked up a new broom for me to use in the house. With all hard floors, brooms see a lot of use – and abuse – around here. Today, that broom has more bristles pointing anywhere but down. Unimpressed, I ordered a new broom. I went for Rubbermaid, since I’ve had good success with their other products. When I couldn’t find one in the stores, I ordered one online. It was labeled “lobby broom”. That was all the description Ace had on it. Fine. Industrial strength, perhaps?
When I got the invoice in the email, I worried just a bit. 36 inch lobby broom. Just what exactly is 36 inches?
And then it came. All 36 inches of it. I had ordered a broom the height of my three year old.
On the bright side, my kids have never been so excited to clean the floors for me before.
