  1. Yeah, I haven’t seen any of these either. And I like the sound of that Salesman documentary too. What a dying breed Bible salesmen must have been by then!

    • Sounds good- thanks for the comment earlier I had forgotten it- when I read your comment I immediately looked for it and ordered it. Before I forgot again…

  2. Lol, no problem! Funny, out of all them, that one immediately caught my eye too. The last time I saw a door-to-door salesman was probably the mid-to-late ’70s. I remember my mom answering the door and this man was in a suit, sweating. It was a really hot day. I forget what he was selling–something for households. Mom offered him some water and I thought there could NOT be a worse job on earth. Apart from walking a lot–which is good exercise, but probably exhausting the older you get–how much rejection was there? How hard did you have to hustle? Like so hard, I bet! I would have folded immediately. Never could have done a job like that.
