they probably don't get paid for the demo, unless their boss is riding with them and can actually witness it. Still not quite sure if they are legit or not but I don't like any door to door salespeople or religious cults coming to my house.
However I can appreciate kids selling girl scout cookies or candy for fundraisers for sports or schools.
Yeah, that's what I thought was funny about it as well... How do they track that? Plus, a quick google search found that due to their "high pressure" tactics in the past, they came to an agreement with some consumer agency that they have to get a written agreement to do in-home demos before doing so... Well, I didn't see any paperwork in-sight. And from what I read, they strictly get paid off of the sale and nothing else, unless something has changed... So, it very well could be the new line they're being told to push...
All I know is, regardless of how I handled it, they weren't coming in my house. LOL.
I've always been funny about that stuff since I was a kid and for good reason. When I was around 7 or so, when we were living in rougher area in Fayetteville, one night we came home from the grocery store. It was my mom, me and my 2 sisters, my dad was at work. Probably about 9 pm or so. My mom told all of us to go inside as she brought in the groceries. We had one of our dogs at the time in the bathroom because she had broken her chain outside, and she told us not to let the dog out.
Well, we went inside and one of us had to use the bathroom... May have been me. Unbeknownst to us, two guys had been standing in our front yard when we pulled up. They must've been scoping out the house as we got home and jumped behind a tree we had in the front yard. They both walked up on my mom and started closing in on her when she tried to load up the groceries, saying they were looking to sell magazines... We accidentally let our dog out the front door and she immediately ran out and jumped on both of them and tried to rip them to shreds. They ran off... Funny thing is, that dog was the sweetest dog in the world. She was a collie and had never been aggressive towards anyone before that I had seen.
So yeah, I'm really funny about people being in my "space."
