First, if you are a fellow Gleek, you already know my Secret Gay Boyfriend Neil Patrick Harris will be on Glee tomorrow night. If you aren't, rest assured that you will be by the end of that episode.
Second, if you didn't read Friday's post, the comment box was hil-AR-ious. It made me feel better knowing I'm not the only scammable person out there. Here are a couple that had me rolling:
Saucy: I was suckered by someone offering a deal where they would clean one room's worth of carpet in my home. I knew of course they would want to charge for the rest, but I needed it done so I agreed.
I didn't know, however, it was a Kirby vacuum salesperson. No actual carpet cleaning but a demonstration of Kirby's "deep cleaning"... I was polite and friendly up to the point where the saleswoman asked if she could see my current vacuum. My stupid ex-husband showed it to her. Why, OH WHY are you getting into this? I see where this is going?
But not completely... she picked up the hose and beater bar from my brand new central vac and HEAVED IT out my front door and into the snowbank, announcing that she'd rid me of the oppression of such a monstrosity of equipment and if I purchased her Kirby vacuum, I'd be much better off.
She was, as it turns out, much better off with the Kirby rammed up her butt and wiping her tears on the way to her car. I was about four months pregnant at the time and more than a little hormonal. You get my drift.
Attila the Mom: Uh, I'm really embarrassed about this, but hey, I was like 13.
I saw an ad for a fat burner---a pair of rubber panties you wear and hook up to your vacuum cleaner. The theory behind it was that the vacuum would suck out all the air so that the pants would be skin-tight and you'd sweat off more fat around your hips and tummy while you exercise.
So I sent in my 29.95 of babysitting money. Easy peasy. Having to explain to my mother what I was doing with rubber panties and the vacuum behind a closed bedroom door was a little more difficult. She thought I was some kind of precocious pervert. LOL
