Oh so many "finds" in customer vacuums my most memorable couple were a couple of Ecstasy pills in this cute little pink vacuum. Obviously spilt stuff while off their head and just vacuumed it up not noticing the value of what was lying around.
I also had a lady come in with her vacuum having lost suction "all of a sudden" did all the normal questions and decided it was a blockage. As it was kinda busy in the store i thought i would have a 30second go to get the blockage out rather than go through the whole process of booking it in and processing it. So i grabbed my unblocking tool and a moment later the lady's pretty expensive looking but way sexy lingerie comes flying out on the shop counter.
She turned bright red in an instant grabbed her knickers and raced out of the store, a couple of minutes later her husband came in to grab the vacuum.
Man we laughed

We get the boring stuff I guess.

Mostly pens, hair clips, the odd coin.

The question is, how did Alec know they were ecstasy pills?  :-X

A DC07 cycone full of what I'm sure was cow $hit (that went straight in the landfill bin), yep, I've had a pair knickers too, but worst of all, a condom!

And then , now and again , batteries, sweets, small toys,etc...

Ahh yes. I remember finding one of those wrapped around a brush bar and partially melted. I just threw the lot and fitted a replacement bar.

Here is a brush bar from a service I did yesterday. Needless to say, it wasn't picking up very well.
