Also, why the bloody hell did the guy who was trying to sell vacuum cleaners ask me to go get the "lady of the house" when I opened the door, even though I asked what he was selling?? Stereotyping pig.

Some days I'm tempted to just board up the front door. People who want to can come in through the window. People I like can come in through the window without the tripwire-driven explosives.

That's a good idea. Mind if I borrow it?

Oh, and I will have to reserve a special window over a pit of rabid wolverines for religious missionaries.

Perhaps because you look like a little kid to a lot of people with no observation skills. Salesmen, for instance.

Well, I hope you were kind enough to let Ejwu know someone was looking for him...

I'll have you know I spent the past couple hours opening giant holes and trying to drop big blue poles down them so that Adam and Dustin would take it like the bitches they are.

You've really got to hear us play Tetris sometime. I think it's even more suggestive than Bust-a-move. The only difference is that the fingers and fists go up, and sometimes they're shinier than others.

Guess I'm missing the stereotype, actually? I would figure the guy would just assume you were 12 or something.

...

Unless of course that the sterotyping is selling vacum cleaners to the lady of the house and has nothing to do with whether or not that was you...?

Actually.. I thought it was more of a race thing ( I'm commonly mistaken as Hispanic ). The little kid idea makes sense up until you realize that I exchanged several sentences with him if varying degrees of politeness.

Oh, ok. I wasn't even thinking race. Heh. :-P

And, actually, your "politeness" would work against you. Everyone knows its only 12 year olds who are actually polite. Especially when its random salesmen at the door :->
