kirby scam

so yeah, it's a 1115 P.M. and the kirby salesmen just left. yeah yeah, you're probably wondering why I let them in my house. Well, to answer that question, let me say I had no idea they were selling a stupid vaccum. I live on base housing in Camp Pendleton, California. I came home from out in town the other day and found a flyer on the door. It said " This is a random drawing and your lucky number is 530. Look in the column of numbers and if you find your number, you won either a 27 in tv, digital camera, ps 3, or a 4 day 4 person pass to disney land. Call this number to redeam your prize. I call the dang number and they said they are promoting an new electronic store. They will drop the prize off at our house. I thought, " Thats cool, save some gas." I wondered what the catch was. I couldn't figure out what it would be, until the door bell rang. Let the dude in, and he kept coming in with boxes and cases and crap. Turns out its the kirby salesmen. He wasn't too bad of a dude. This must have been one of his first times out on the street. He wasn't real pushy. About three hours into this goat rope someone else shows up. Some dude that acted like Slim Shady. He tried to sell us this dang thing for 2200. I told him that I'd buy the vaccum for zero down, 30 bucks a month for 6 months, and if he bought me an egr delete kit. He called his boss and laid it out to him. Obviously it was denied and finally after a whole night wasted they were gone. Oh, and we won the camera by the way.... A freakin disposable camera

they tried to sucker me in too but i told them to get out. first of all i was trying to move into my house and i come back with a load of stuff, meanwhile leaving my wife and my mom to unpack, i come home and find a man pouring dirt and all kinds of other stuff all over my new carpet. I asked him what he was doing and he said not to worry its a demonstration, i told him dont worry were not buying and made him leave.

We had a kirby salesman come to the house about 10 years ago. They sold my mom one. It has been a real good vacuum. But sad to say, i bought a vacuum for 40 bucks at walmart. It does just as good a job as the kirby.
