The Perfect Job
Umm...I think it'd be better if you went back to the Masterstrokes idea... ;)
By: Lexa Cain on April 21, 2014
Uh Stephen- this is NOT one of your better ideas. Masterstrokes has far more potential. Plus I think I'd rather hire two handsome Cabana Boys to come over and flip my mattress! Or something.

This is one question I won't have to sleep on!

I have thought about this post for some time. My conclusion? I think you've had better ideas, Stephen.

If you get more business than you can handle, my Sweetie would make a great mattress flatening company employee!

I have a memory foam one so I shouldn't need your services.

i wish i could flip my mattress - damn pillow top. all i can do is twirl it.

As much as it pains me to torpedo your brilliance...wouldn't it be easier to market the "mattress lump removal system" which would be a huge bag filled with sand (in a pretty cloth tube) that would be delivered and picked up. You could be collecting on a multitude of uneven beds instead of one at a time. A secondary purpose would be separating couples that aren't feeling all that friendly.

Think Cheryl P may have a good alternative especially since you can only flatten one bed at a time.

I would NOT want to sleep in strangers beds for weeks at a time...especially with them in the bed. We have tracks in our bed but we have one of those foam toppers and we flip that every once in a while.

You and Mrs. C have fun chats. I think you just got hired as chief leg-puller. :)

No, but you can come and help me flip my mattress!

I bet Lucy and Ricky Ricardo never had that problem... :-)

Ever the entrepreneur! I think this business has potential. I will put a rack of your business cards on the counter of my proposed handbasket factory. Here's a suggestion: You can work days. Sleep on that lump while people are away at work. You don't even have to sleep. Save your sleep time to be with Mrs. C. You can raid the fridge of your customers, and watch their cable all day long while flattening their mattress. Just be sure to put it back on their channel, and Hoover the crumbs out of the bed.

So this Masterstrokes thing....do I have to give my credit card number or is it just added to my phone bill? Will it show up on my bill as something that the Mrs might start asking questions about? Can it be delivered in a plain brown "invoice enclosed" envelope? Oh...the sleep over idea: stick with the Masterstrokes. :)

Well, I for one, like your idea. We have that bump in the middle of our mattress, too, and we can't flip it b/c the other side is not finished. But ... could you come during the day rather than at night?
By: Tom Sightings on April 21, 2014
We've noticed those indentations as well and have found flipping does help, but oh boy! Flipping a mattress is a kind of test of a couples ability to communicate and accomplish a difficult task, while staying calm. It would probably make a hilarious YouTube series.
By: Tom Cochrun on April 21, 2014
good luck with that Stephen :)
By: Fran on April 22, 2014
Oh my dear man.....Cheryl P has the answer for you. Or you could perform an additional service and hire extra lump flatteners and lots of ladies would have peace filled nights sleep as their significantly challenged others were off working for your new endeavor. Lump flattener makes me giggle.

This is just a brilliantly funny post, I loved it.

Didn't you hear the rumour? Waterbeds are coming back to the market place. Apparently it has some catchy marketing spin about no bumps, trenches or a need to be twirled or flipped.

What about picking up some additional work sitting on the unused parts of people's couches? Mine has a dip where I normally sit, and I would like to even things out on the other end of the sofa.

Combine it with Masterstrokes, and you'll make millions. This was very amusing, though I suspect Mrs. C wasn't joking. xoRobyn

I'm wrestling with the rather disturbing 'three-in-a-bed image that you have evoked! I'll give your question further thought when I've regained equilibrium.

You are a nut (wish I had a dollar for very time I've said that). When Mike & I got married we got an old mattress from his grandmother's house. It was first sold in 1956 - older than Mike! But someone had worn a trench in the middle of it which was perfect for newlyweds :)

I'm rolling my eyes...but I'm a mattress flipper. LOL!

As my grandniece has been known to say... "Hmmmm. Maybe not." I've got problems with mattress flipping, however. First, can't do that with pillow-tops! The physics just don't make sense to me. If the mattress is completely dead in one spot, when you flip it, won't gravity just do its thing all over again? I'd buy a new mattress. Or have more sex with Mrs. C... I mean... Well... You know what I mean!

ours had terrible divots in it and could not be flipped because of the way it was constructed. we got a new mattress!
