    A friend of mine used to welcome the religious people into his home with a beer in his hand and a torn "wife-beater" on. He'd offer them a beer and then proceed to talk like the nut that he looked like.

    THis is a true story, I swear! My parents were good friends with the Episcopal minister and his wife. She was a character and a half. When she was in her 70's, the Mormon's knocked on the door and she answered it. She asked them if they still believed in polygamy and they fell all over themselves saying NO! She told them that she wasn't interested then because her husband needed a wife to cook and clean and a wife to have fun with and she was sick and tired of cooking and cleaning. They just about fell over each other getting off her porch. And she used to tell this story at every party, wedding, funeral or other function we saw her at. She was a scream.

    Here's an interesting bit of trivia that happens in just a few hours: At 5 min 6 seconds after 4AM on July 8th time and date will be 04:05:06 07/08/09 – this will never happen again.

    All of these stories about getting rid of solicitors have me

    We had the people selling cleaning solution roaming our neighborhood yesterday. Fortunately for me they hit my street before I got home. However, the next time the come by I think I will just tell them I don't need it because I don't clean my house...

    I have inadvertently found the solution to getting off the phone quickly with solicitors. Just tell them that you are unemployed and can't pay the bills you have. It seems to work with all of them.
