Selling beds door to door?
Door to door sales are not uncommon here in England, but tend to apply to certain categories. We have people offering Avon cosmetics or brushes and cleaning materials by a couple of companies. There is also a prolific door to door presence for people promoting domestic power companies or gardening services etcetera.
Today I encountered one that I have never even heard of before. When I answered the door there was a man who had a van parked outside and was selling beds and mattresses. This is undoubtedly the strangest thing I have ever come across.
A bed is not exactly the type of product that people buy often, or buy simply on a whim. The only potential customers would be those who actually require a new bed, which will not apply to most people more than once every 10 years at least.
I do applaud anyone who is prepared to take the initiative to go out and create an income, but this seems so futile and unlikely to prove rewarding.
