Wow - salespeople irk me sometimes!

Okay, I'm home sick and yet I am going to blog 'cause I have to relieve some frustration. Now, normally I am nice to the people who invade my home trying to sell me something. So I am sitting on my steps opening my mail and not feeling very grande indeed as I am icky looking and wearing a big old coat and my ripped up orange cargo pants with my hair lying lank around my head. This guy comes up to me and asks me if he can have a moment of my time. I very kindly say "if you're selling something, I'm not interested". Now I think I am being fair in not wasting his time if he does happen to be selling something and I am frankly not in the mood to listen to the speil so I figure I am doing both of us a favour. But no, apparently not, as he begins to berade me for my attitude and tell me off. Excuse fucking me. And so I tell him that he is invading my home and I don't frankly have to be NICE to him if I don't feel like it. I apologize to him and explain if I sounded rude it was because I am home sick and I'm a bit cranky. Does that stop him from telling me off, no. He also goes on to say that I am not in my home but rather sitting on my steps and he is sure that I'm renting so it is not my home and blah blah blah. It ended badly with me telling him to fuck off which I am not proud of but quite frankly who the hell does he think he is. I also told him that I would ask my neighbours what he was selling and would contact his agency to complain to which he very snottily and in his bad french accent informed me that he was working for himself thank you very much so good luck with that. I figure I don't have to do anything at this point 'cause with his self-righteous attitude, he won't get far in his little business 'course maybe that is the attitude one needs. I figure though that he had better make a go of it soon 'cause he is obviously not cut out to do the door-to-door thing and he better never knock on my door again 'cause next time I may not be so nice ... ha!I think he assumed a lot of things given the way I looked and I doubt very much that he would have talked to me like that had I been wearing my power suit and so forth ... this is what I think irks me the most. People make assumptions about you depending on the situation and the way one is dressed. I did not make an assumption about him but rather said "IF you are selling something, I am not interested", I mean he could have been trying to save the dolphins in west edmonton mall or had some interesting petition for me to sign at which point I would have been interested but if I want to buy something than I will seek it out and don't need to be pressured when I am home sick. Grrrrrrr ... and grrrrrrowl ... I hate it when people make me feel bad about stating something that is true. Had I offered him a minute of my time it would have been a waste of his time, 'cause I do not have any money to spend on something I don't need. I guess he was feeling rage at having to schlock his wares to people who don't want to buy but why on earth take it out on me ... okay, I'm done now ...
