Last week, my friend and day-care provider had a horrible experience with a Kirby vacuum sales man who came to her door in a Post Falls neighborhood. The tactics used by these "sales" people were a appalling! First a female knocked on her door and gave her a line about a free carpet shampoo. With 6 little kidos in her in-home daycare pushing at the door to see who it was, the sales woman quickly offered bubbles for the kids and gained access to my friends home. There was a quick bait and switch with a male salesperson out of western WA who brought in the Kirby unit and proceeded with a high-pressure sales demo of the vacuum. She told him repeatedly she did not want to buy and would not with out her husband home (he was at work), but being the nice, sweet, easy-going person she is, she was not forceful enough to get him to leave. After I had picked up my kids and left she texted me that she "couldn't get rid of him." I returned and helped her kick him out of her home, but not before he thoroughly berated us both and called his "boss" explaining the situation in not so nice terms. She told me later that he had tried to get her to purchase without her husband's consent because it was for health purposes and she should look at it as a business expense for her daycare. Despicable! Do not let Kirby in!
