    My wife just let a Kirby vaccuum salesman in the house

    I'm teaching her a lesson by making her deal with the presentation and ignoring the whole thing. This might be divorce-worthy.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Maybe she's giving you a hint that she needs a new vaccuum.

    I wonder how many jobs this guy failed just to say. "F it, might as well sell vaccuums." I would pass on that job and stay unemployed, mainly cuz i'd feel like a jerk for giving the presentation.

    Re: My wife just let a Kirby vaccuum salesman in the house

    Honestly my wife bought one and I didn't speak to her for a week. 10 years later and that thing still runs like a champ. We used to buy a new vacuum every couple of years too. You can't beat the power of a kirby. They ARE worth the money.

    I have to agree, begrudgingly, though.

    I think a lot of it may have to do with the economy - a lot of the sales jobs out there were door-to-door things when I did a search of desmoineshelpwanted.com for a friend a few months ago. I'd imagine it's a pretty stressful job - people are likely rude, and I'm guessing it's almost all commission-based.

    Obviously the economy. But like I said I would rather be unemployed then dealing with that stress.

    I have a kirby that I didn't have to pay for, and I will say it is the best vacuum I have ever used.

    I know of a guy that started out selling pots and pans door-to-door and then recruited others to sell for him also and then bought a health and fitness club and then built his own health and fitness club......etc. (Some on here probably know him) It can be lucrative, but I wouldn't recommend it as a job for any normal human being!

    Maybe its the other way around... all those people that harass you for amway\quixtar\primerica end up selling kirbys.

    Re: My wife just let a Kirby vaccuum salesman in the house

    I'm more excited to get on here later when some guy posts:

    I went to this house tonight to sell a vaccuum, and this lady was totally hitting on me. I'm convinced she bought a vaccuum from me just to make her husband mad.
