    Text of the Vacuum Sales Digital Story

    This text provides the script of the Vacuum Sales digital story. Use this text as an alternative or supplement to viewing the digital story itself.


    “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!”
