WhY I am the Dumbest Person on Earth

Why did I do it? I KNOW better. I got suckered by a cute face. Well, not a cute face in the traditional sense, but anyway.....

I let the Kirby vacuum cleaner salesman in my house.
Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb.
Let me preface this by saying I hate Kirby vacuums, too heavy -too expensive.
You see, I wanted him to win that trip to Disneyland, really....
And he was this short, chubby, cute Hispanic guy with lots of enthusiasm.
And I told him he could only come in and vacuum my carpet for 20 min.
Because I had to go somewhere.
And he had to speak Spanish because I need the practice.
Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb.
45 minutes later I was annoyed, my brain was fried from comprending el espanol.
I was late to my Pinewood derby meeting.
But.....
Almost thou persuadest me to buy a Kirby vacuum...

We had one stop by my place too, put we have mostly all wood floors and I didn't want him in the bedrooms. Oh dear, was I supposed to be at the pinewood derby meeting?

We had one come while we were in our rental house. They spent soemthing like 2 hours cleaning the front room. A week or two later, the stains were back. I wasn't impressed.

Ha ha, thats funny. I always have a hard time saying No. I have ended up with so many magazines and girl scout cookies that I didn't need. I love Pinewood derby time....hope it went well.

It's always the accent ;)

First, I am so glad that you didn't buy...I have heard that a Dyson is the only way to go.

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog! Your son is serving in our mission, right now, he is in my mother in laws Stake. You can get to her blog from mine. Her name is Faye Gold.

I am trying to find a last name or a good picture so that I can see if I know your son. If he hasn't served in our ward yet, he more than likely will...we are the Spanish speaking hub for all of Knoxville.

Love your blog.

well if this makes you feel 100% better, we got sucked in once we purchase the place we live @ now for 9 years, and oh yes, I purchase one. He gave it to us for $1700 as we paid half cash instead of $2300. And yes after I got so tired of the heaviness, I took it to the vacuum shop and left it there. Through out the attachements and purchase a dirt devil. LOL
Best thing I did.

Mom you get sucked in by any semi-cute guy with a cool accent. Once we were at home (she and I) and we were just hangin out when the doorbell rang and there was this british guy who was looking for a guy named TL (my dad's name) who own all the Jaguars. Well, we were not the right people but he was cute, drove a really nice car, and he wanted to buy a Jaguar! So, why not let in a strange british guy and help find the right people. The best part was listening to him talk!! :)

I am currently on someone's "sucker to make quota" list in my ward. I have been struggling with how to put the brakes on without offending. I know she wants to reach Gold Star status but I really don't need a best friend who calls only to close out her monthly sales goals.

These people are coming out of the woodwork lately!! I've had 3 college students earning $$ for this, that & the other in the past 2 weeks. But I say no, usually I'm ticked cuz they rang my doorbell during naptime. SACRED naptime!!! How dare they!?!?! Never had the Kirby guy though---Dyson is THE BEST!!
