Kids are pretty sneaky, espically some with some kids here going "I gotta sell 2 more magazines to goto EUROPE! Please help" I say no, they wont go away, damn kids. Same kid comes back 3 days later, tries his pitch again, but this time he needs 6 subscriptions....

I remind him on the 2 he said a few days ago, he gets embarrased and runs away crying. Besides, his rates sucked, $50 for Maxim for a year, plus $10 processing fee.

A friend of mine used to make a bad habbit of coming to my door at all hours of the night, pounding on it, running around to my bedroom window, pounding on it, running back to the front door, etc.

One night, I met him back at my door holding my 48" 440 surgical stainless Katana. I scared him sh|tless running out my door yelling and holding the Katana over my head.


...he's never done it since. :D
How much was your Katana anyway? I've been looking for one, not necessarily 440 but just a cool looking one :)
Mine was $200.

I feel sorry for people who pay $60 for a magazine which is $20 else where.

I have no problem buying stuff from them despite their poor salesmanship. But disrespecting my property was the final straw for me. They left two shoe print on one of the doors. I ought to talk to their parents, but I doubt it will do any good.

And just think... if you had hit them... YOU would be the one to go to jail...... what a country.
And what exactly would be his reason for hitting them?

...that's what I thought. He wouldn't have one. In which case it would be right and proper for him to go to jail.
I see jokes are a thing of the past on ATOT
When it comes to beating kids, yes.
We wouldn't have to beat them if their parents raised them right. Lighten up

Talk to the company that they work for.

You got rippppppppppped. I paid $225 for a combat quality forged Katana. It has actually saved my A$$ from getting cut a few times. I've got a couple of 440 stainless katanas and they are nothing but show pieces.

Of course.
Mine came with two others. The Wagasashi and the Daito (pretty sure on that last one). It also came with a stand for all three made of stained wood.

and here I am...thinking adults or your seniors (NOT elderly, just older than you)
automatically get SOME degree of respect for living longer than you have, thus, almost always, having more "life experience"....
but of course, there are boneheads that get stripped of that privilege (sp?) damn quickly...
