TV Salesmen

I have this thing against TV salesmen. They annoy me to no end. I don't care if it is the local car dealer that yells or Billy Mays, the Orange-Glo guy. If you yell at me, I will not buy your product. Ever!

[Sidebar: Same thing for preachers - don't yell at me!!]

But today I was annoyed by a non-yeller. The Sham-Wow guy. What's up with that headset he wears? Is he on a break from his regular job at the McDonald's drive-thru?

Which one is worse?

Is this just me? Or does this crap annoy you too?

And don't get me started on Head-On, Apply Directly to Your Forehead!!

LOLOLOLOL! I about peed my pants when I read your comment on the Sham-Wow's guy being on break from McDonald's. Did you noticed that it looks like he has something in his mouth or has Bells Palsy, or something. It was all I could look at through the whole commercial. The Billy Mays guy gets on my nerves, too but not as bad as the Head-On commercials!!! I H.A.T.E that commercial!

Side note, or question - Did you change the name of your blog? I was thrown off. Remember - Me slow.;)

I HATE ALL OF THEM! I believe this is the main reason I started blogging and quit watching t.v. Although, Clint looks pretty good right now in "Fist Full of Dollars". Hubby is watching. To me, it's just background noise!

They had a shamwow guy at the Iowa State Fair....notice he didn't get a mention with the deep fat fried twinkies. He was a freak!!! It was like an old-time revival and he was the preacher selling his tonics and people were throwing their money at him....seriously, I know I have a knack for exaggeration but it's true! $20's were coming at him left in right ( of course it was buy one get one free) and I just wanted to get up front with my $20, and as he took it, grab his mic and run like hell!
