Traveling Salesman

Now I've done it! I really need a "No Soliciting" sign on my front door. Since the weather has gotten nicer I'm constantly being hit up by door to door sales people. Now you can all tell me how stupid I am for actually being suckered in to buying something. Our huge plate glass front windows are a mess with hard water stains and I've tried everything to get them clean to no avail. This guy was selling a cleaner that he actually sprayed on my windows and cleaned the stains right off. $37.00 later I guess I know what I'm doing this afternoon. That way when Phil sees the checkbook and asks why I spent almost $40.00 on a bottle of cleaner (albeit a very big bottle)...I'll have something to show for it. I hate saying "no" to people, and I'm sure I could have found a similar product for less, but he showed up right after I looked out my windows and lamented at the fact that they are still dirty. That's why I need the sign. That way they can't even knock and I won't have to worry about it.


  1. I can also be a sucker, but not after the last salesman we had in our neighborhood. He gave everyone a different story and then he proceded to steal someones checkbook, walet, and cell phone out of their car. I don't even answer the door sometimes, especially when I am home alone with Isha. It helps that Stitch has a big scary bark!

  2. I feel the same way. I remember that I bought a set of "college help" encyclopedia type books from a sweet sounding Irish girl who came to our door in high school. I never even used them...but she was so cute and seemed to really need the money! I guess that is one of the perks of apartment living, soliciting in the building is prohibited. I get the same urge when I watch HSN or infomercials...BAD! -Sara

  3. That is too funny! I think sometimes it's worth spending a little (or a lot...) extra money just to have what you need. You at least will use the product and I'm sure you won't need any glass cleaner for a long time!
