    No Soliciting Sign - I laughed so hard...!

    I could see this guy walking from door to door in the neighborhood Saturday.
    So, I run and make a sign real quick - sign read :
    No Soliciting 5/24/08
    Don't Bother - Won't Buy - Don't disturb
    I hurry and hang this outside next to my front door.

    Up walks the salesman - so I hurry and go to my Spy Hole in the front door.
    Out comes the Salesmans Cell Phone & he's laughing...
    I fly open the front door - scared the salesman, he nearly dropped his cell phone.

    I said - your going to take a picture of that ? Salesman chuckles - yeh, I've never seen anything quite like it. He took his picture & as he was walking away laughing, he was calling someone & laughing all the way.

    I never thought of what kind've reaction I was going to get - too funny.

    I know - my husband calls me a brat..

    What do you do for fun ?

    It sounds like you made his day.

    I wish I had the nerve to have a nameplate made the says "The Diva" (you know, professional looking, wood, goldplated) and put it on HER desk.

    Along

    Do you call her" The Diva" on a somewhat regular basis ?
    If Yes, then do it.

    My husband calls me" Toots" - I love the presents TOOTS receives..

    No, I don't call her Diva so this would be an ornrey thing to do with a nameplate. She is one...but I don't call her one. But.............she's the only one in the office who wears a smock with her name on it.

    My customers know I have a thing for scotch tape. When they go to the bathroom, and I have a free second, I tape their drink chips, money, cigarette pack, lighter, eyeglasses, etc. There's a few who I think are actually disappointed if I don't have time to torture them.

    Good one, Patsy.
    I sometimes wear a rhinestone tiara and my 1950s rhinestone cat-eye sunglasses around town. With my jeans of course. I think it's funny because I'm the last one who should be wearing a crown. And if I go out with my friend we both wear our tiaras but she's too chicken to wear it in public so we have to take them off before leaving the car.

    i used to have a sign on my front door saying
    "we shoot every 3rd salesman, the second one just left."
