Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Whitey," the Happy Peddler of Sunset Strip. Whitey has a job he can really sink his teeth into: He sells Tooth Whitening treatments door-to-door in the West Hollywood/Beverly Hills area. He stopped by my office on Friday, unannounced, to spread the word about a "one-time only, extra special offer for Mother's Day." "Hello," he chirped, in a voice that sounded like Minnie Mouse on Nitrous Oxide, "I work for the Dentist across the street. May I interest you in a little Tooth Whitening for Mother's Day?" He handed me a Voucher entitling the recipient to a complete Tooth Whitening Treatment ("valued at over $400") for the low, low price of only $60. "Wow!," I exclaimed, reaching for my camera, "That's less than $1.88 per tooth!" "Yes," he said, "But you have to act now. This offer is only good for Mother's Day." After much discussion (and several candid photographs), I finally said, "Sorry, I'll have to take a pass" and escorted him to the door. Let's face it, in the Pantheon of Mother's Day Gifts, a "Tooth Whitening Treatment" from a door-to-door salesman seems a bit insulting. I'd rather give Mom a little Plaque ...!
