Today's Solicitor Super Star award goes to.... the kid who just knocked on my door! He was selling newspapers and magazines. I was saying, "No, Thank You... Good Luck... Bye Now... No, really, No Thanks..." He was having none of that!
Finally, he made me an offer I couldn't believe. He said, "If you don't have time to read newspapers, I could just put it in your recycle garbage bin when I deliver it to your house. Then you don't have to pick it up yourself."
Isn't that something? I could subscribe and pay for the newspaper and he would deliver it and put it right in the trash for me! How convenient! I said "Thanks for offering, but NO." Then I hated to do this, but I shut the door. He was still jabbering away.
Cute kid, he's got quite the entrepreneur spirit! He'll go far. I 'm pretty sure he'll get that college scholarship from his Alternative School for troubled youth and stay out of trouble on the streets, even though I didn't buy anything from him today.
