Nancy opened the door to find the smiling face of a well- polished salesperson.
“Good afternoon,” he said, “May I have a moment of your time to demonstrate the newest technology in vacuum cleaners?”
“I haven’t got any money,” she said as she started to close the door.
But the salesperson had moved his foot into the door well, preventing its closure. “But Madame, you at least owe it to yourself to see the demonstration.” No quicker were the words out of his mouth than he was emptying a bag of dirt onto the carpet.
Although she looked panicked he reassured her, “if this does not pick up all the dirt I will personally eat it.”
