Quick story about a door-to-door salesman encounter. I did a huge favor for this guy I knew by letting a new vacuum seller come to my house and practice his demonstration skills. Well, he showed up, (and not to judge), weighed well over 300 pounds, was wearing dirty clothes and to top it all off, he dropped a deuce in my bathroom. He was in my house for more than two hours and would not listen to me repeatedly tell him "NO, not interested!"
