When I need something I go to the store or order it online.
Those meat guys give me the creeps. I do know a woman who bought from them though. Her family ate the meat and are still alive but the cost per pound didn't sound like a great deal to me.
Heat detectors in '73. 2 for $180. additional detectors for $40 ea. Told him I would take just 3 of the "extras". He said it doesn't work that way. I told him to hit the road. Mrs Roe told him we would take them. Still have them.
Don't you have a calendar that you can just highlight July and August?
I thought door-to-door salespeople died when online sales began...
oh, y'all have had the meat guys in the little red and white trucks there too? they used to come to salina but i haven't seen them in a while.
who wants to buy meat out of a truck? too many bad jokes could be hatched out of that scenario. bleh.
I went to high school with a guy who ended up driving one of those meat trucks. Trust me, you don't want to buy that stuff.
I got my wife going door to door...
I bought an Electrolux vacuum cleaner in 1982. The salesman brought his wife along on the second visit for the demo. I got a great deal and the vacuum last until about a year ago. I doubt I'd buy one from a door to door salesman these days. Even some of the youths selling now are a bit scary.
Yep, heat detectors! attached to the wall close to the ceiling, wind them up like an old alarm clock. If the air temp goes over 140 degrees they sound off like the old clanger type alarms on schools years ago. Have kept them as a backup in case the smoke detectors should fail to work. Paid too much for them, but have thrown out numerous smoke detectors over the years that have needed to be replaced. Oh, well....
similar to this ..
Informed--you scooped me! Glad you were online early and paying attention, but either they aren't monitoring this thread or they have failed to understand your point.
Here's one rewrite (among several possibilities) that works:
Have you ever purchased anything from a door-to-door salesperson who was not affiliated with a youth organization?
This is not rocket science. No one (much less a J-school graduate) should emerge from university writing so poorly. Since they do--and even get jobs!--the LJW should run these poll questions past the editorial staff before posting them.
I actually bought vinyl siding in 1980's and a Kirby vacuum cleaner, both items were a good buy, and are still running well.
no I would be afraid to, it might be an Undercover Lawrence Police Department officer trying to sell me stolen stuff.
whats this world coming to!?
I know that the question was about door-to-door sales that weren't related to youth groups, but one of the best buys I ever got was from a neighbor girl. She was selling spring bulbs for her Girl Scout group.
I bought some unusual ones from her and every year since I planted them they have come back even more spectaclular than the year before. They have performed better than ones I have purchased from the local garden centers.
Yes. I kept telling a Kirby guy no and he kept lowering the price. I bought the piece of junk at about half the original price - munus some of the attachments.
It sucked dirt through the fan which tended to break off the fins. BAD experience and a lesson learned.
