Having proven their tenacity to generate millions of dollars to strip away the rights of Californians, Mormons are now overtaking a business whose basic premise is “we make America safer.” [NYT]
@Joanaroo: Shit. I wish a Mormon would come knocking on my door. There isn’t any amount of training that could prepare them for the tongue lashing that awaits them once they cross my threshold. Evil bastards.
@Joanaroo: Well, I don’t know what the current numbers are for D2D sales. I know I did it myself, very briefly, many years ago, pushing Kirby vacuums. It’s shit work, entirely, and you have to put up with a lot of horrible people to do it. I think my time at that job just about matches with the period when I began to lose faith in humanity.
Of course, I’m a terrible salesman who spent more money to have the job than I made. Call me crazy, but my conscience wouldn’t permit me to push obviously poor people into spending $2000+ on a vacuum cleaner. There were a couple of instances where I all but talked people out of it. My soul felt good, but my wallet sure didn’t. You have to be at least a little evil to go into that type of sales. No surprise that the Mormons are latching onto it.
