Omaha-area salesman on Saturday afternoon. No one was hurt.

You would too, if you came home from work to learn that your wife was duped into dropping $2,000 on one.

No POS. Called rainbow works with water and it's a canister. We use $150 sanyo upright 99% of the time.

My luck I'd come home from work and he'd be dropping 9" in my wife.

Wasn't there a guy here the other day that was getting a little hot with a vacuum salesman?

I had an afternoon to kill once and let one of those guys in (I was recovering from ACL replacement) once. I let him vacuum the hell out of the living room and den, listened to his spiel and told him I wasn't interested. He tried the hard sell routine, and I informed him that I wasn't buying and he'd best shove off before I let my dogs in for supper. Large barking dogs < obstinate salesman.

I had a vacuum salesman that was being a persistent asshole and wouldn't leave. I told him that I was going upstairs, getting my gun and if he was still in my house when I came downstairs I would shoot him. My son was about 7 at the time and without missing a beat looks at the guy with a sincere and innocent face and says "he'll do it too."  I've never seen a human move so fast.

Yes and I posted his name in the OP. He is from Nebraska and so are the salesmen so they could be the same salesmen.

Stutz is East a 1/3 or so of the state from the NE/IA state line!





See little for membership "activity" from NW Iowa and really just Western Iowa in general.
