This Takes Me Way Back

Oh, how I remember Olympic Sales Club. I was so excited when I got my sales kit, which took six long weeks. My mom was my first customer.

I stood outside the supermarket to try to sell people stuff. My sales pitch was not great, either. I was honest in why I was selling. Not for charity or some other noble cause. I wanted to get my hands on some of those cool prizes!

After standing around various places as my mother shopped and getting rejected 99% of the time, I finally gave it all up. Ah, those were the days.

How many of you did the door to door sales?


You’ve heard the rest so believe me blindly now
