Lying in bed half asleep getting over a nasty cold. Mrs. C is at work at a dance competition. I am watching football in my underwear and the doorbell rings. Not once, not twice, THREE times!! Like it is an emergency. I snap awake, leap out of bed, pull on some pants and run downstairs.
No one is at the door. DING DONG, DING DING, DING DONG!!! AND NO ONE THERE??
In the door handle are pamphlets....
Nick Perrette and Larry Doyle for Sayreville Council...We want your vote!
Lynda Cleary for surrogate, Rodger Daley for Freeholder, Abrar "Sam" Khan for Freeholder...We want your vote!
Joe Kyrillos for U.S. Senate...I want your vote!
Anna Little for Congress...I want your vote!
Hmmm...I don't think so!!!
Nick, Larry, Lynda, Rodger, Abrar "Sam", Joe and Anna...how about GO FUCK YOURSELVES!!
Nice campaign...Ring and Run...I used to do that when I was 10...ASSHOLES!!
Like I won't see these pamphlets between now and election day so you have to ring and run. If you guys are not smart enough to tell your volunteers to just leave them in the door, I don't want you in office.
Damn I love blogging!!
That is SO irritating--especially when I have to come downstairs & waddle to the door with my cane!!ReplyDelete
I agree: why ring the bell? You'll get to those pamphlets in good time, provided you want to.ReplyDelete
Makes me glad I live out in the country. In the last 4 years I've had just one cold caller at the door. Unfortunately living 3 miles from a town doesn't stop the:ReplyDelete
Thats crazy that they rang the bell.....ReplyDelete
As for Mrs C... a Nutritionist client of my sisters says the best cure for a cold is to totally overload on Vit C and Acetaminophen... 2000mg Vit C and 1000mg Acetaminophen every 4 hours...Actually works a treat. She also recommended taking 1000mg of Vit C a day to help keep the cold at bay to begin with....
I always answer the door, ask what party they are shilling for and tell them I'm for the other side and would they mind giving their paperwork to someone who cares. Works for me :)ReplyDelete
I live in a small enough community that the candidates themselves ring the doorbell ...and stick around to talk when you answerReplyDelete
