GOOD IDEA –
Not being mean to Street Carnies. Street Carnies are those guys that go door to door in dirty golf shirts asking to aerate your lawn, seal your driveway, spray for weeds, check your furnace ETC … doesn’t matter what they sell I ain’t buying. They come around at like 8pm right when you’re putting the kids to bed or in the midst of a binge session on Netflix trying to sell something you don’t need.
But still, don’t be mean to them. Cause they are fully aware how irritating they are.
Last year one of my neighbors actually got in a fist fight with a guy wanting to check his furnace. Amusment aside I still felt bad for the dude with his colour photocopier name tag. I could see him a few hours earlier posting a selfie on instagram going, “Well, I got a name tag, guess it’s off to work for this guy. LOL”
So sad. You wanna encourage your kids to stay in school send them out on the streets hauling one of those massive lawn aerators around all day making no money. Then remind them, this is what happens when you don’t stay in school.
Street carnies, the modern day version of carnie carnies.
