“The other day when I got home from work I heard a knock at our front door. It was a salesperson selling vacuum cleaners.

He had a vacuum with him that he claimed was the latest in vacuum cleaning technology. He asked me to come into the living room and then he guy dumped a huge pile of dirt on my white carpet! I was about to tell him to get lost when he vacuumed it all up and sure enough it was completely gone. I couldn’t believe it, the carpet looked brand new!

Then he said…

“Anyone who wants a comfortable, clean home needs this amazing vacuum cleaner.

You certainly look like someone who likes having a really clean home. So, you definitely need this vacuum cleaner!”

I told the salesperson he made a convincing argument but that I needed some time to think about it. So he agreed to come back in a few hours for my answer.

A few minutes later, my wife came home from work and I told her what happened.

She said…

“Honey, our carpets are clean and we already have a working vacuum cleaner. We don’t need a new one!”

After she said that, the salesperson came back to the house and I had to tell him that though I do like our floors to be clean, based on what my wife said I’m not so sure we need a new vacuum cleaner. He didn’t look too pleased about my decision but left his business card anyway. I closed the door, and I heard my wife yell from the kitchen, “That reminds me honey, it’s your turn to vacuum the house!”
