They need to be thirsty

A while back a young ambitious college age painting contractor came by my house and offered his company’s service. After letting him do his pitch I informed him that I was not interested. He went on to tell me that my house was in need of a new paint job and it could not wait another year. What he did not know is that I painted houses and businesses when I was his age and the house at the time in fact had about two years left before it needed painting. Plus, when I am ready to paint, I will be doing it myself. His problem was simple, I was neither in need of what he offered nor was he able to convince me otherwise. I was not thirsty.
