It's tough being a parent so you can't really blame this Irish dad for having a bit of craic at his son's expense.

The young fella doesn't know how to turn on the vacuum cleaner but, fair play to him, is eager to get to work.

Dad tells him it's a pull-chord starter (like a lawnmower) so the poor lad attempts to start it by pulling on the retractable electrical cord...

Again and again and... again.

Finally, dad puts him out of his misery and tells him to plug it in the switch it on.

"And we have lift-off!" he declares as his less-than-impressed son finally starts vacuuming.
