Sandy: I did something uncharacteristic of me. I let a salesperson come into my house. I know, not a wise decision. But she hooked me when she said her “technical specialist” could clean my carpeted stairs to demonstrate their product. First of all, she never mentioned Kirby. She led me to believe her company was marketing our neighborhood/city to expand and it was a demonstration for services. I was leaving the house shortly and thought that it would a great opportunity to have the stairs cleaned and dry while I was away. Long story short, I let the “technical specialist” give me a demonstration. (He was left-handed and he noticed that when I tried the Kirby that I used my left hand.) He also wanted to show me his most convincing sales point to which I said “no”. I did not need him to show me the dust mites from my mattress sucked up by the Kirby. I didn’t sleep very well thinking this Kirby team had scoped out my house in 30 minutes and I would be hearing someone coming up the stairs to get us and our mites.
Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
