First, there was Carl Sagan. Then, Dr. Seuss' "Horton Hears a Who" ... In any event, if this doesn't give one reason to pause and reconsider their place in this world, at this time - in contrast to The Big Picture, I don't know what else would be an appropriate reality check.  Just Saying.

Having sold Electrolux vacuum cleaners door-to-door (and made a pretty good wage while doing it ... Hmmm, flash forward to Caddyshack's Judge Smale's comment, "The world needs ditch-diggers, too, Danny!"  If you're going to dig dirt for a living, you may as well do it inside - using an Electrolux and have some fun while you're at it.  But, I seriously digress.

Had I seen a doormat at somebody's front door, I'd have to knock on the door just to find out where they got such a cool doormat?  After learning where I could get me one, I would then commence to swapping out their old vacuum they thought they loved but only tolerated - except when trying to pick up the damn Christmas Tree needles ~ that's when the blasphemy would start and it wouldn't matter how much they gave at the office, those damn pine needles just aren't going to get up off the floor by themselves.  

And, there you have it.  One Doormat = Good laugh + quick rapport, then a vacuum comparison test <their love sucker for five minutes over the same area of carpet versus Electrolux with canvas bag to shake out all the dirt left behind by their dirty, little tramp appliance>  and, then, the moment of truth.  Who or what do you love more?  The "Cleanliness is next to Godliness" embroidered stitchery hanging on your wall or all those piles of dirt lined up on the perimeter of the carpet test area that the Electrolux removed from the bottom of the carpet AFTER five minutes of using the vacuum who apparently doesn't love you in return?   It's a simple proposition at that point.  One of two things is going to happen next.  A decision will be made by a scorned lover. Because if the Electrolux leaves, that means they chose to live with their dirty, lying sweeper.  Or, they can once again have faith restored in their Doormat Diety message.  They will LOVE their vacuum, thank their God for sending HIS messenger with a new vacuum and, with the money their saving from carpet wear and tear - they'll be able to give more at the office, church or favorite charity, again.

Isn't the mystery of Life and Divine Intervention delivered through door-to-door Salvation an awesome story inspired by a Do Not Disturb Doormat?   Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor?  Or an Electrolux - probably right by His side, if the embroidered wall hanging has any merit ...  Just Saying.  Marti, thank you for your Stonekettle Station comment which led me here - to your door (so-to-speak).

These innocent children weren't the only unnecessary deaths - their caregiver and families will suffer their loss as long as they shall live.  It doesn't have to be.  http://OandZScientific.wordpress.com

Help us spread the word and get ALL Auto Manufacturers to incorporate this simple solution into each of their models - eliminate accidental deaths due to vehicular entrapment once and for all.
