    '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'.

    SusieSue, Please don't think my comment was a disparaging one about anybody who works in retail. I have also worked in shops, loved some customers, detested others & always tried to give good service. I enjoy shopping & find the demise of our traditional high streets a cause for concern. When I'm buying something it's always nice to know that the other person in the transaction knows their 'stuff' & sometimes a personal story or recommendation is relevant, however, those made by Ms Huntley aren't. If someone in a DIY store had said the same thing I'd have contacted their manager.

    I was watching first ime in ages and she did apologise for her silly comment. She said she had never used a power washer and she was joking and did not mean any harm to dogs (I am sure she would be mortified she upset people by her silly remarke)

    You are very right there. They seem to go on autopilot and just open their mouths without engaging their brains. It is obvious that little to no thought goes into a presentation, as often the spiel stays the same and only the presenters' outfits change. As a job I would have to change how I was saying things or bore myself to death!

    Given that, by the law of averages, there will be foolish and maybe even cruel people watching at any moment... It was incredibly stupid to say pressure wash your dog even in jest. For all we are supposed to be a nation of animal lovers, the RSPCA exists for a reason (SSPCA in Scotland).

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
    Good post Twilight, but copy your comment to the top guy in the U.S. it really works, as they hate any negative reports from their operations abroad.

    Good job Chuntley wasn't flogging microwaves, or she'd be suggesting drying off the cat in it ! And YES she's that stupid its the sort of thing she'd say, either that or she's a very good actress at being a 50 something ditzy idiot who can't stop flicking her extensions and looking in the bloody monitor.

    If you had a particularly unclean cat you could power wash it, give it a going over with the Clarisonic and then dry it with the Dyson! Actually no, don't do any of these things - cats are generally do a good job of looking after themselves.

    Cats do get eczema, though.

    When I was a student, two of my housemates had a fight with power washers and the jet was so powerful if left red weal / marks that blistered their backs. If Huntley was serious in her suggestion, then of course someone should take her into a room for a private chat and explain a few home truths to her.

    I don't think people should be silly enough as to follow her "advice," though. Maybe I should buy a pressure washer to blast that annoying fox outside my block of flats? But no! I'm not that cruel. I don't need a pressure washer as I use Showroom Shine on my vehicles.

    So much for researching the products then. Saying that, I've never used a chainsaw but I know not to trim a dogs hair with it.

    I wouldn't presssure wash away the fox Julius, it's foxes that keep the rat population down, apart from it being utterly totally vile thing to do of course.

    She clearly has very poor judgement. Anyone with a modicum of common sense would know that there are certain topics you donít joke about. There are far too many things to list but power washing a living being is certainly one of them. Just another example of poor management of these wannabe celebrity presenters.
