    I kinda' understand older folks, (60'-70's) but anyone younger than that is just itchin' for trouble.

    I haven't see an Avon Lady since my mother gave it up back in the '70s. Now my wife gets her Avon goodies from a former coworker who sells exclusively to all her friends and former coworkers.
