The Most Embarrassing Moment of My Life/How to Get Rid of a Salesman

Before I get to my post, I just want to thank everyone for checking out my blog, posting comments, and sharing on facebook. Already it's had more views than I ever thought it would. And this is what, my fourth post? I'm so glad that there are others who find my humor, well, humorous. So anyway, thanks.

I will now relate "The Most Embarrassing Moment of My Life" (or at least my most embarrassing moment in the last ten years) aka "How to Get Rid of a Salesman."

Last Thursday, at approximately 6:30 pm I was sitting on the couch nursing Lyla. The doorbell rang, and John excitedly ran to the door. I was expecting it to be Hubs coming home from work.

"John, will you look out the window and see if it's Daddy?" I asked.
He peered out the front window. "Yep, it's Daddy." he said and opened the door, just as Lyla broke off from eating, exposing my --

Well . . . you know.

The door opened and there stood a Comcast guy. "Uh, that's not Dad." I brilliantly noted.

Now, the front door is in perfect view of the couch I'm sitting at. I could see him, and he could see me.

ALL of me.

I tried to use Lyla as a human shield (I don't know why I didn't just pull my shirt down) as Comcast Guy hands John a paper and says, "Give this to your mom. Sorry ma'am." and runs away in record time.


Who would have thought all I had to do was flash the salesman to get them to leave? You would think doing that would make them stay. I guess I'm not as young as I used to be, so this might not work with young ladies. But, if anyone is willing to give it a try, I'd love to hear how it turns out.


  1. LOL! That is funny! If it makes you feel better, the other side of the world where I come from find that scene totally normal. I forgot to comment on your last post, but I read it while standing in line at the grocery checkout. I had stifle my laughter and was grinning all the way to the cashier. People were probably wondering what was so fun about being stuck in line.

  2. That is the best thing ever!!!! Made my day. Makes me that much sadder that I haven't been able to breast feed my babies... If for no other reason than to get rid of those pesky sales people! Lol. You're the best!

  3. Yikes! We have gotten really good at checking the peephole quietly after too many uninvited salespeople.

    1. I usually do that, and then tell the kids to be quiet, but since I was occupied this time . . . Now I think I will tell the kids to just NOT open the door, Dad has as key.

  4. Bwahahahaha!!! I am so happy you shared that! :) OH, Brittany! How I miss you. Can you guys PLEASE come back? I would also really like to know if Hubs was pleased that you were so effective in getting rid of a salesman, or upset... ;)

    1. I'm so glad that you received pleasure from my embarrassment. ;) We miss you guys too! I would LOVE to move back to your neck of the woods. Let us know if you hear of any job openings for him. Hubs said it sounded like I was "disappointed that he didn't stay for the show."
