I decided to see what sort of bargains I might come up with on Ebay and Craigslist (by the way, never mis-type Craigslist by leaving that first letter "s" out. You'll get a porn site! Forewarned is forearmed).
You can imagine my delight to find that Ebay has some wonderful tips on various brands of vacuums. Click HERE to see info in Kirby sweepers, and HERE to read about Dyson.
When I was having so much fun with the Kirby salesmen the other day, I told them I was going to use them in a journal entry, and they joined in on the humor of it. I had no idea at the time what I'd say about them or their visit, except that I'd give them a good review.
As I sat down to type my entry after they left, I mentioned some of the prices the guys had mentioned to me in that entry. Jeremiah figured his bosses would be impressed with the good review I intended to give them and told them how to find my journal (go to Google, type in My Country Life).
When his overseers found the prices in my journal entry, both salesmen were in deep doo-doo, because the Kirby folks don't want people to know the price of their product until they've seen it perform.
Hey salesman guys (I know you don't have Internet, but...) you have my sincere apology. I do hope I didn't cost anyone his job.
And please, you supervisors and bosses at Kirby, I have to tell you this: All it takes is a few trips to Google and you'll find your prices are all over the Internet, put there by well-meaning people just like me (type in the words "salesman price of a kirby"). I even found one article explaining all the techniques the salesmen use, and why. Google will also make you realize that there are a lot of happy Kirby owners in the world. If you simply read the comment section of my entry about the salesmen, you'll see some hard-core Kirby owners there, some who are now on their second one. People who say they definately ARE worth the money.
So if you Kirby people happen to be monitoring my journal, please tell me Jeremiah didn't lose his job on account of me.
