    Revenge on the Tupp-er-ware Ladies
    My wife is off tonight at another "home party" function. We are in so deep. Go to a party - have to buy an item, need it or not. There are a multitude of them ranging from makeup to cookware to craft kits. Putting a dent in my web-page creating time (watching the kids) and a dent in the wallet (notice how these two work against each other). One lady is really a hard sell artist - she shows up at dinnertime and stays for the long pitch.

    I came up with an idea. I will print up business cards promoting my infamous "shopping mall" site. The front page of my site is loaded with money-saving coupons (a goldencan dreamland). I will make sure these get out to all the ladies, especially the hard sell artist. I may have to make a few followups to see if they found my site ok and their purchases were shipped ok whenever I see these ladies (especially the hard-sell lady when it is dinnertime ).

    Good idea? This is not a joke.

    You should send her to one of those 'adult' tupperware parties. That way, at least you get to use what she's buying ;-)

    I think it is a great idea. For what it's worth...practice makes perfect. I've gone to many of the home parties and I've gotten really good at saying NO!

    Fine for the most part, but don't be surprised if Miss Hard-Sell decides that a *site* is just the thing she needs to do even more selling...

    HA! Good point. Then he can make her a web site and charge her. :-)

    Cards are printed and in the wife's hands. I had some old ones from an experiment a year ago.

    I'm ready to take this to the next level. The return addresses of all those little postcards we get stating "You are invited to a party..." could make up a nice mailing list!
