In the days before earbuds keeping track of your headphones was hard enough, then you had the extra chore of making sure that the cords didn’t get so tangled that they were unusable. Fishing them out of the bottom of my purse, unwrapping them from around my hairbrush, lipstick, and last week’s snack wrappers could take hours.
Then you have to deal with the evil vacuum of doom. I’ve lost count of the number of power cords and headphone cables that have been ruined by my vacuum cleaner. Let me tell you, retrieving those bad boys from the brush is not a fun way to spend an afternoon.
