I'm a sucker....

Ok, so I got suckered in my own home....into buying a KIRBY vacuum! Oh my goodness, I never thought I would be one of those people who would be convinced that I couldn't live without this amazing vacuum. Well, I am officially one of those suckers! Two salesmen came to my house last night and wanted to show me their product...the KIRBY. They were there for THREE HOURS trying to sell me on this thing. And stupid me, I was sold on it! At least I have a 'buyer's remorse' period and can cancel the deal within 7 days.

So, I took my mom and Ray-Ray's advice....I called them this morning to cancel it, and have them come pick it up. Unfortunately it has been major drama! I have had a live voice twice, once they told me to call back when the guy would be in the office, and the second time I got put on hold and eventually got hung up on. Then I've been calling over and over and it just rings off the hook. I then called my credit card company to put a block on the purchase and they can't do that. I have to wait till the charge goes through and then dispute the charge. Drama! Oh, and don't even think about asking how much it costs...you don't want to know!

(one hour later)....
I got ahold of them and they are cancelling my transaction. I should have confirmation by this evening, or tomorrow. Pray it all goes through ok!

Yes, I'm a stupid girl, and wishing I would've never answered my door last night when they wanted to come in and give my couch a free cleaning! The only good news here is that my couch, 2 rugs, a chair, my hardwood floor, and my bed are all clean from dust mites! :) I felt good sleeping in my bed last night knowing that vacuum captured all those gross micro-creatures! Sick! Anyway, we took a picture with my [hopefully temporary] new KIRBY...The door-to-door sales guys were super nice and we actually had a good time chatting...or at least I did. Supposedly we're going to be Facebook friends too. One of them asked for my number, but does it make me a mean person for not giving it to him? I just wasn't interested in that way. Oh well. He made his sale, right?! haha :) Now its time for me to get my money back!

I'm going to pretend you didn't let two strange men into your home...

Yeah, me too! (about letting 2 strange men in) You poor thing...I know how hard they pressure you. It's like you really can't imagine how you ever lived without it!...until the next morning :) I'm glad you are getting it all worked out...hopefully!!!

I had to laugh because when we were first married a similar company with a similar product stopped by on a Saturday night and stayed in our home for 2 HOURS. They used their vacuum to vacuum dirt up off our floor, and then, when they finally did leave, they left the pile of dirt THERE. I was really upset.

But I'm glad you survived. :) You look great by the way. Love the new hair.

I hate to be the harbinger but......you should have kept the Kirby. I. Love. My. Mom's Kirby. It spends more time at my house than it does at hers and NO vacuum has ever come close to how AWESOME this brand is.

But hey, that's just me. I won't tell you I talk to it, too. I love that thing!
