Today, it was my first day as a vacuum salesman. While I was demonstrating how well it removed stains, I managed to smear stuff over the area I was cleaning. So not only was I unsuccessful in removing the original stains, I left them with worse carpet than when I got there. FML

Here's mine. He says he will clean any mess he makes. He leaves a pile of dirt on my carpet and while packing his car, simply left once packed. No goodbye. I vacuum it up, found the office and complained. The manager said, "well, it's your dirt isn't it?". Outraged, I dumped the canister on his desk and phone and replied, "Now it's yours". I was SOOO pissed.

Time to switch vacuum companies! It's not your fault the vacuum doesn't do what you were led to believe it would. You were just doing your job.

10 - The company shouldn't have "led him to believe" anything. Whatever the company said about the vacuums, he should have tried the vacuums out on a variety of surfaces with a variety of stuff on the floor to vacuum up to test the vacuums before taking the job. If he didn't try them out before accepting, this problem he created would have been his own damn fault.

40, You don't understand how the business world works do you?
If a company says a product can do something it is not up to the sales rep to check if its bullshit and avoid demonstrating it to the customer, the product HAS TO do what it claims. Stating claims that are false is illegal.
