Well… yesterday started off as a normal morning for me, I woke up, I did my normal morning routine of exercise, shower and eat breakfast… and then… an earthquake!
I’ve been getting behind on blog entries so I decided the night before I would write one yesterday about the Miele B990 Rotary Iron Mangle we started selling recently.
When I was ready to walk outside I realized, WOW! It’s really an incredibly beautiful day with perfect weather, so I had only 2 choices, call in sick (but I don’t do that unless I’m really sick, as karma would ensure I’d get a rare form of illness) or take the day off. Now… this is where my creativity came into play. I called the big boss man and explained my dilemma, he told me to just work from home writing for ½ the day. I LOVE MY JOB!
So the mood was set for a great blog entry, hammock – check, laptop with wifi – check, big glass of EdenPURE 2000 filtered water – check, sunshine and 70 degrees – check… earthquake centered about 50 miles from my home– check!
Here’s how it went down, I was just finishing up the blog entry and all of a sudden I heard what I thought was my stomach growling, then it got louder and I thought it was a train, but I live in the country where there’s not a train for miles, just about then the hammock started to swing. I looked up at my house and noticed the chimney dancing around. It took a couple of moments for me to realize what was happening, then I jumped up and ran inside the house (now, I know what you’re thinking, hey kid genius you’re suppose to run outside during an earthquake not inside!). I know to stop, drop and roll, but this is only my second earthquake, thus I’m still learning.
As I got back inside the basement, it stopped. That was it. I looked around, a few things fell off the shelf, but nothing broke. I questioned myself, did we just had an earthquake? No way!
I called my loved ones and then tried the GoVacuum office and warehouse, but the phone lines were not working. I texted and got a reply that everyone was alright, no injuries. I figured at this point, I should go into work, but the fear of an aftershock derailed my intent of riding my motorcycle. I was excited to get there, as I knew I would hear some cool stories about the earthquake centered approximately 70 miles from our warehouse.
One of the funniest is how, an employee I call Superman just bolted out the door, he just stood up from his desk and ran outside (maybe I need a lesson from him on earthquakes). The other was how Michael was taking an order and looked outside at the surrounding buildings and blinds shaking then turn back and continued to help a customer who ordered the wrong bags.
The big east coast earthquake 2011 made for some fun excitement at GoVacuum. Then I walked through the warehouse. I was reminded of how lucky we are no one or stock was damaged, but then I walked to the back corner where we keep our returned inventory, floor demos and open stock vacuums and air purifiers. Well… so much for no damage!
It turns out we had more then a few machines fall from the shelves in this area. So much for my easy going relaxing day, as the rest of the night was spent inspecting the packaging, the contents and making sure they all turned on and operated properly. Luckily they all are fine and in great working order! The boxes took all the damage. Just one problem, now we have to sell them and the owner would prefer sooner then later! So he has done something he has never done before, he is allowing YOU the customer to name your own price!
He told me to make a list of not just these fallen few plus all of the open stock and returned machines that have been inspected and “sell them fast”… so as of today we are having our official GoVacuum.com “Earthquake Of Savings Sale”!
These prices are so low we can’t list them online at our website, as many manufactures will only allow us to sell at a certain price on our website, if we offer it for less online they will not allow us to sell their vacuums anymore. Yes, even if they are open stock items! The solution? Call US! Just pick up the phone an call us! You WILL save money!
That’s right, if you call GoVacuum at 888-468-2210 we can let you know what vacuum for your cleaning situation we recommend and we will check to see if we have it in open stock. The owner has authorized deep discounts as he wants these machines to be sold ASAP! (I think he is worried about hurricane Irene now!) There has never been a better time to invest in your home and air quality then right now!
Call 888-468-2210 Today! You have 30 days to return the machine if you aren’t 100% satisfied with your purchase! I mean, you are dealing with GoVacuum.com the most pro-consumer and best vacuum cleaner website in the world!
