    Julius, tell you what you stand and let someone put a powerwash on you at full force, then ask the moronic question, What harm can it do again?
    I would plead "not guilty" to the "totally ignorant" charge. Same goes for "not an animal lover." I'm sure Syrup-Voice shouldn't have said what she said, however I do wonder wonder whether it was just a no more than a flippant little quip, for which she duly apologised. I can't imagine she would, in all seriousness, suggest washing a dog with such an appliance, or stating that was a legitimate usage. I know QVC is very American-centric, however we can understand irony in the UK, or at least most of us can, perhaps apart from certain band of people who choose to jump on a certain bandwagon and bang a certain drum. If people are stupid enough to take what CH said literally then they should be in an asylum!

    The only damage that's been done is likely the fragile sensibilties of a few people may have been hurt because they choose to unnecessarily make an issue out of something

    If, and I say IF Cath Huntley made her "suggestion" in all seriousness, that would be an entirely different matter, of course, and could arguably see her and Q part company. I think it's important to view things in context.

    It'd make a great headline, I must say. The pun content with dogs and pressure is superb!

    You'd plead "not guilty" to the "ignorance" charge then hey Julius...........the Jury is still in on that one. As for pleading not guilty to "not an animal lover" the Jury is back with its verdict judging by the evidence of past comments and I'm afraid it's a big, fat "Guilty!!"

    Oh and for the record, I channel hopped unfortunately at that particular time, and yes, she was 100% serious.

    I assume you didn't see it. I didn't see the actual event but I saw the apology and I don't think she had made a flippant remark. She actually said that she hadn't got a power washer and didn't realise that it was that powerful. She said she was very sorry and please don't use it on your dog or words to that effect. She added that she can say stupid things sometimes. She had obviously been taken to task over it.

    Then she should be fired! I really must try and watch the clip. I find it difficult to believe that even Cath Huntley would suggest pressure washing a dog!

    What next? Will she be suggesting people buy that stupid 200 purple hairdryer so they can dry their cats after they've been out in the rain? Or you could use your Clarisonic to free it of feline dandruff!

    Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeowwww!

    The hairdryer is actually 300, which in itself is quite funny, as for the Clarisonic, it's not for dandruff (unless you can now get dandruff on your face, which I doubt) no it's a facial cleanser, so unless you know any cats who Cleanse and Polish I doubt a Clarisonic would benefit them.

    [QUOTE][I've just sent this to the Q: 'Ms Huntley suggested using a pressure washer on a dog after taking it out for a walk. She apologised, hopefully she was forced to do this by her director, but by then the damage was done. I've complained about her over-sharing previously, however, it seems nothing stops this woman. She is a television shop assistant & I don't want to hear about her bowel function, her menstrual cycle & most definitely don't want to hear suggestions of animal cruelty. Please retrain or dismiss her'. Grrr/QUOTE]

    Having worked in retailing for more years than I want to admit 'shop assistants' are hugely under-rated and under appreciated members of the workforce, they are usually well trained and have to have a good working knowledge of the products they sell, they also have to deal with rude members of the public on a daily basis and they have to keep their till accurate. They do a thankless task for minimum pay.

    Unlike QVC presenters who can spout any old tosh, play with their tablets, shop while on air and chat about anything other that the products they are selling.

    I wouldn't give any of them a job in my store
