Doing chores around the house shouldn't be nearly as difficult as this kid is making it.

This father caught his son trying to start their vacuum cleaner like it was a lawnmower, completely unaware that he was trying to start the device with what was actually the plug.

The dad didn't set the record straight with his son right away, though. Instead, he decided to have some fun and encourage the boy to "keep trying" before he decided to come clean (or as clean as could be without the vacuum powered up to remove any dirt).

These kids today, right? It's amazing that in a world where they can work a smartphone before they can crawl, some youngsters have no clue how to operate something as simple as a vacuum cleaner. We'd love to see what happens when this young man tries to give running the dishwasher a try.
