I guess the ultimate challenge would be to go to a free timeshare vacation and endure the sales pitches there. I've heard people with their mind set on not buying ended up buying the timeshares at the end.

I went to one of those time share vacation stays and pitches a long time ago, and the pitch just bounced off. Returning to my home town just after college, one of my high school friends, now selling insurance, suggested we "have lunch." I didn't realize what was happening, but that one bounced off me, and I got a free lunch, too. When I got home, my mother was shocked and told me I should apologize to him. Live and learn... To this day, I still cringe when I see that guy at high school reunions!
