So I go out to a large tradeshow complex to set up my booth for a homeshow that is going on this weekend and proceed to put my display together.

As I am doing this I look out past the back of my booth area and who do they put there? One of the local RV dealers, thats who!! Didn't count them but they have about 8 or so new units of different types set up there.

So here I am, having to tend my booth all weekend and the unit they put there, sideways to my view so I see the whole thing set up, a really nice spiffy 24' travel trailer!

Oh sure, torture me all weekend having to stare at this thing! Of course mine needs replacing and I have been talking about it for a couple years now. Still can't afford it, especially after losing a lot of work in 2012, but there they are, all these nice new RV's for me to dream about while I'm working my booth!

This must be "Be mean to Bob" weekend - Haha!

Sigh! One of these days.......

Maybe the dealer will let you look at them after hours since you both are working booths, kind of like your personal tour. Maybe offer him a beer or soda while you look.

Just don't take your wallet with you when you go look. Just get some brochures so you can see the floor plans. It will be a treat to you after working your booth.

You will survive.

Watch out for that end-of-show special. The dealer will be happy not to tow it back.

Poor, poor Bob! what a terrible situation to be in! dreadful indeed. maybe they`ll let you spend the nite in them?

Now, why do they have RV`s at a home show? unless maybe you signed up for a trailer home show?

Bob this is your lucky week. I'm sending you a check to cover the cost of one of those new 24 ft. travel trailers that you were looking at.

Nah not really I just thought I tell you that so I could be bad to Bob on be bad to Bob week!

Sorry I couldn't help myself the devil made me do it!
