OMG, Pop Up Sales Person Scared The Living Daylights Out Of Me!!!

7 replies
So there I was just a few moments ago, sitting in my conservatory, cup of tea in one hand,finger on the mouse with the other when I began browsing someones sales page. All was fine, no one at home so everything was peaceful, sun shining outside, tea tasted good for once and I felt like I was focused. As I tried to leave this chaps sales page I spilt my cup of tea and my paper work is soaked because of the annoying

"STOP, BEFORE YOU LEAVE THIS PAGE".

It was incredibly loud and now my paperwork is soaked and my hoodie which i just washed it stained AGGHHHHHH.

It was an unwelcome intrusion and shattered the peace I was enjoying... You annoying Pop Ups you!

Sorry, I just felt compelled to share this as it was quite amusing, to me anyway!

Has that every happened to you?

    Yes, I've had similar reactions when I'm doing whatever on the computer, minding my own business. A pop up sales person finishes loading and very loudly and very suddenly starts talking! I nearly fall off my chair. XD

      Damn, I played the video all the way through because I thought you were going to show something about pop ups, and when it ended I got the pea soup reference.

      As a by the way, i dont think that linda blair was ever normal again after staring in that film.

    so it sounds like there is NO support for pop ups or walk on spoke-people in here/

    Guess you just have to be in the right industry to get away with it, but yeah, i think its a bit tacky too.

    hahaha, no I was referring to just the standard pop up voice sales person that many of the gurus tend to use. Its not really a rant, I just thought it was funny when it happened.

    Do you know the lesson I take away is?

    MUTE the volume on sales pages! That way, my tea will remain in the mug, clothing stain free and I'll be enjoying a serene browsing experience!
