    I got home from work around 8pm last night. Around 805pm an unknown guy from my local knocked in my door. He had a paper I filled out and mailed to the union so I knew he was legit. I let the dude in and he asks if we can have a 20 minute meeting to discuss "free benefits the union offers" that will benefit not only me but my girlfriend as well. I scheduled a meeting with the guy, but I'm kind of wandering if anyone knows what the hell I should expect.

    I should have asked last night but I just got home, my feet were cold and wet, my belly was empty, and I didn't yet have a beer in my hand. Three problems that were much more dire than talking to him.

    Winner winner, chicken dinner. It is life insurance, from a union life insurer.
    If they give you the hard sell, tell the guy you will be contacting your local union.

    As soon as he says life insurance, he will hear "no thank you! and you have 60 seconds to get out!"

    Eh, I'm a veteran, my veterans group life insurance is sufficient. Plus VA disability pays for it. Free for me! I'll tell him to bolt asap. Thanks fellers

    Once he mentioned free stuff I was hooked. I knew it wasn't smart to talk to him since I had never met him before, but the word FREE gets me every time. I'm hoping he offers union funded college tuition and stuff

    Had that conversation 20 years ago. He kept telling me it was a good deal because it was through the international. With a Sicilian accent.

    I hope the Teamsters are getting a good kick back from these idiots they let use their name. Teamster credit cards are another gimmick.

    These people call me every year. If they showed up at my door I'd be a lot less polite than I am on the phone that's for sure.

    I'm use to having strange men knock at my door late in the evening.
