Zap, I agree with your comments about selling door to door. It is not a job that I would ever do and I hate it when they show up at my door.
I guess I wanted to give the guy some some support for his current position in life. It is very easy to say get out of the door to door industry, and I would probably would have said the same thing if it was possible to wake up tomorrow morning and be employed in a different job. I realkise that for some people this is possible.
I would suggest that a large proportion of people today are employed in positions that they do not actually enjoy for no other reason than they have to have somewhere to live and food (or Surge) to eat.
To me, the person that works in a job considered shitty by some others, yet takes pride in their work and does everything they can to be the best in that job deserves more respect than someone who has a more socially respectable job and takes it for granted or does it half arsed.
