Did you buy any? My distributor needs all the sales he can get! Laughat

Got the Victorian Blue with Grey trim. He said that after my check clears, two nice young European men would be coming to install it. At least I think they're European. Names are Jose and Hose B... or something like that. Spanish, I think they must be. Consider

Nice choice, but I would have preferred the white trim.

Got an unsolicited call today from a trade journal that wanted me to advertise with them. I said I didn't promote or advertise. How do you find new business he asked. I told him I actively avoided new business. What? I don't undersand? he says. I asked him if he even knew what kind of business I was in. After hemming and hawing he said he assumed I built homes because I have the word "home" in my company name. Nope, I provide shelter, and if I provide a nice enough shelter at a competitive price I seldom have to advertise, in fact often I have a waiting list for a vacancy. Oh, he says, you don't need my services. Righto, and by the way I ask him, do you make it a habit to call numbers on the Do Not Call National Registry? Hello? Hello?

I have no idea why I related this story to you on this thread Ohmy Big Grin
