Today my husband was at home after a Dr. appointment, and a young man came to the door to sell Kirby Vaccum cleaners. Helena has a law about selling things door to door, you have to purchase a license so that everything is on the up and up. Its for the protection for the people of the neighborhood or the city . So Steve ask the young man for his permit and he said he didn't need one, and he was very rude. Steve went on to talk to him about how salespeople tried to sell things to the elderly people when they didn't need them or could not afford it. All of this brought memories back of when Mother was disabled and had to live on her disability check (which was very little). The young salesgirl made my Mother believe that she needed this machine, when she had no breath to even walk accross the room, much less able to vaccum. She thought she was helping them get a sale and a commission and if there was anything my Mother loved to do, was to help someone. It was only $10. a month for I forget for how many years. My Mother couldn't afford $10 a month, so I paid for her cleaner with the shampoo attachment. My Mother had to take so much expensive medication, that since there was no more medicaid that helped with the meds she had to pay for all she needed herself, breathing was important so she needed all of it. We paid the difference and I didn't mind one bit, My Mother was so proud that it really bothered her that someone had to help her. She moved in with us the last 2 years of her life, I wouldn't take anything for one minute of the time I had with her. I miss her so, it is awful when you don't have a living parent.
I am getting totally getting off the subject. I called the city hall and could get no one, lunch time!
So I called the Police, they are in the same building, to check it out. Needless to say they had to move on to another town! Yeah Helena's Finest!
