"Did you really sell doors door-to-door?" she asked.
The answer is Yes. I had two doors strapped to my back and I carried two suitcases. One full of hinges and the other one full of door handles. I also had a catalogue of all sorts of doors made in all types of wood, or plastic, or metal or whatever.
I called from door-to-door encouraging people to buy a new front door, or a back door, or a door for any room in the house. I sold all types of doors for all occasions. Cupboard doors, wardrobe doors, fridge doors, doors for the washing machine or the dishwasher or the microwave oven. Any kind of door, I would have it in the catalogue and I could sell it.
Also doors for the shed in the garden. Or any other out-building like garage doors. I even sold car doors should anyone need a replacement for their car. Admittedly, there was not much demand for car doors when calling on people door-to-door. So I went to car factories instead. They were not interested because they said their car bodies came with doors already fitted in them. But I was not deterred. I managed to sell car doors for a group of people going on an expedition in the jungle. I told them that if it gets very hot they can always open the car door window!
So please, dear friends, if ever you have any doubts about the veracity of what I say here, do not hesitate either to leave a comment or write to me at the address at the top of this blog.
My door is always open. Which defeats the object of having a door really. Especially since I am out in the garden right now typing on my laptop.
Now there's a thought ... why do pants have zippers at the front and not a door? Here is a new business opportunity I think.
