I can't even imagine going on a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas and being 'stuck' with a high pressure salesperson for the entire time.....

But wait! Were we talking Gilligan's Island here?

Did a Vegas thing when we were first married, and they kept telling us that we were stealing our children's chance at life by not buying their swampland. We got a free show ticket for our troubles, but it was so bad that we left right after it started.

The room was filled with people who "Bought" the package (shills, obviously), and we sat with amazement at what was going on.

They probably sold a couple of lots during our presentation, and I felt sorry for the buyers.

We were already in Vegas, and signed up for the "Free Show Tickets".

Just remembered; it was Connie Francis, and the show was cheesy and horrible!

I guess we got lucky, we sat through a presentation in vegas and got 2 free meal tickets to harrahs buffet and 2 tickets to see the lion king. Both were awesome.

We got hit with one at Myrtle Beach one time. Offer was 25 silver dollars which in 1978 was pretty enticing. It was us and our 3 kids and my sisterinlaw's family with 2 more younguns. They took one look at us and all them kids and said u"Y'all just take the money, we can't help ya!"

Just remembered, It was Connie Stevens, not Connie Francis! I'm 70 y/o now, and I guess I'm coming down with CRS.

I like to cut up the ad's and mail them back in their self addressed stamped envelope and makes them pay the postage. That way it gives the post office workers jobs.

These guys are too smart, or too cheap, to include the SASE.

They want you to call their 800 #.
