I was at work today and the lady I take care of asked me to mop her kitchen floor. Now this woman is a TAD frugal. And when I say "frugal" I mean "cheap as all get out". She has one of those OLD, OLD, OLD floor mops. I don't know what the strings are made of, but it's not cotton fibers. It has more of a rubbery feel to the "strings". I can remember having them at home when I was little. I couldn't find a picture of them on the internet, though.
[I'm sure some of you old geezers--yes, Bruno, I mean you--will know what it's made of. I swear you should start an "Ask Bruno" page. I know I have plenty of questions. LOL!]
Anyway, she says to me, "Should I buy a new mop?"
I said, "No. I don't think you should rush into the 21st century. Take your time."
