At about 3 PM today, a nice cable man stopped by the apartment to see if I had cable service, which I did not. By 3:30, I was watching Dirty Dancing on VH1. Hooray for solicitors! Thank goodness - those September premieres are coming up soon.

Comcast - B+

I think this is the only time I have ever heard someone say "hooray solicitors". Usually people are rude to solicitors.

I should know, I knock on doors to promote myself as a candidate!

Good for you, Amandarama... you made some solicitor's day! (and commission)

I've told you about talking to strangers.

Did you slip him $50 extra to get all the good channels for free?

one time in DC the cable guy came and gave me free channels and I didn't understand why he kept hanging out and chattting. He wanted me to slip him some cash for his deed...I didn't, I just thanked him and he left...I feel bad, but I didn't have a clue til after when I talked to people that there was this whole system of doing that.
