The built-in "no"

Today, we entertained a sales associate in our home, voluntarily. He was extremely personable and so is probably successful in what he does. That is, he sells hurricane windows, evidently to the extremely wealthy. This is a category we avoid being in by several country miles.

We will do as we told him and get several other estimates. Perhaps he confused us with the Trump family. I don't see how he could, however, because we surely don't fly a garrison flag out front.

Did you ask the sales person if he preferred an arm or a leg? Not only do we have to deal with insurance hikes, home owner’s tax bills, hurricane season, and the water shortage, we have to deal with the high costs to protect our homes. We do live in a city with beautiful weather all year long which does ease the pain. Maybe the sales person was thinking, I must make my Porch payment this month.

We forgot to ask him how many miles to the gallon these windows get. Might as well be buying a car ...

At almost three dollars a gallon, the windows probably get better gas mileage. We are still waiting for the magic phone call about the search for our car. At the right price, we will have a built-in "yes".

If - I say, IF you were to install these wonderful and amazing windows on your house, by what amount would your homeowners insurance go down? Is that the sound of laughter from far away I hear?
