Weird Items, The Big Question, And More From The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show
We had a "Weird Item Saturday" last weekend on The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show. Yes, things got weird.
Katilyn G. has been naming a best and worst of the show during the Shotgun Recap each week. Two weeks ago she had nothing, so we decided it was time to have a weird item day.
A 12-pack of discontinued Lone Star Beer, a Calf Puller, a Stuffed Grizzly Bear, a Gold Dredge and a Pickled Shark-In-A-Jar were all offered up for sale. We also had a right handed drive rack and pinion. One of the weirdest had to be the Bella Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Vincent Price masks. It was a good time and we will do it again soon.
The Big Question centered around the Super Bowl, coming next weekend. We simply had to know who you had in the game, either who you thought, wanted, expected or were betting on to win. The New England Patriots won the day 24-18 over the New York Giants, and that is what our official predicted score will be, 24-18.
Rule #6 was certainly inspired by two incidents that happened to me Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday night an unexpected knock came to my door.
I've got a pretty good policy of not opening the door until I know if I really want to talk to you or not. If you knock on the door and I don't know you I won't open the door. I really hate door-to-door salesmen and any solicitors. I see it as an invasion of my privacy and as such will not entertain any pitch.
The gentleman at my door could not be understood until I opened the door. He mentioned wanting me to vote in some election he was running in and I promptly shut the door on him and went about my business.
Imaging my surprise and disgust when the same idiot appeared at my door the next night with the same request. I asked him to hold up his city permit up to the window. You know, the one you have to have to interrupt people's lives with inane requests to vote in some kangaroo election.
I told him to leave or I was going to call the police.
So rule #6 this week: No door-to-door soliciting.
You folks can surely find a better way to get the word out. Knock on my door, I'm voting for the other guy.
See you next Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Tradio Show!
