If you don't know it by now it is tax season, and this guy is going to make sure that you know he is wanting your business. So everyday since the first of the year. He or his wife have been out there in this costume trying to get your attention.
Whatever it takes to get your business. Have you got your taxes done yet?

We have a couple of those statue of liberty tax kids also! I was always embarrassed to ask if I could take their photo.

You not participating in "bridges" this month?

What fun!
Can't imagine a UK accountants dressing up & toting for custom, wish they would.

Sharon said...

That is odd behavior! :) I wonder how much business they got with this tactic.

I love the pictures of your robin below this post. They are very nice.

That's an odd shot for sure! I have to admire them for trying tho.

I am sorry that I (do not know how) have lost your site of the standard sites I normally visit. Have put you back in my sidebar again and hopefully you will have comments from me further on.
My concern in the sunday post was not to those who do not visit me, but those who do not take the time of doing anything but giving "blind" comments.
If I recommend my visitors to take a look at the video, I expect them to do so, if interested in my posting. RuneE said something about video not mine and too long, but still I feel that too many are more concerned about getting comments than giving. Thats why I am unsure of my continuation of participating in SWF.
However, regarding your odd shot. I really don´t understand. Is he marketing his company for helping people from paying tax, or ???
I think the situation is more odd than the photo.
Going back to your April 4th I like the first photo, while the second is one oh hundreds presented. The same motive, same light, sun and clouds that we have watched lately from Norway through UK Portugal and USA makes me cry for something more.
I don´t know what, but looking and commenting on same,same, week after week makes me feel for a break.
Hopefully may you help me with that in the future, and I will watch you and see
:-)

Well, that would definitely catch my eye!!
Canadian taxes are due at the end of the month and I had ours done a long time ago... phew... I just hate having to wait until the last minute.

Novel - truly an ODD shot,

Come and be welcomed by my Duck with open wings.

Donna said...

We've got one of those guys here as well!! Same costume!LOL...hughugs

Rose said...

We have the Liberty Tax service guy that stands on the street in a town near here! I told my husband I should think and take my camera.

Also, near where he stands, there was a sign that reads "Crappy Joe's Insurance"--I should take a picture of it.

quintarantino said...

Odd enough and a bit weird ... does that guy earn is money doing that?

diane said...

tuff job and cool odd shot!

Dragonstar said...

That's really odd! Are those red gloves part of the costume, or just to keep their hands warm?

KOSTAS said...

Are very beautiful the photographs with the gentleman it depicts the statue of Freedom.
Very good Odd shot post

John said...

This is a really odd situation and very good odd shots post. Well done.

diXymiss said...

Great catch! Interesting how the odd gradually becomes the ordinary, as we see it more often. I wonder if such marketing tactics truly garner increased sales?

JC said...

Funny how they seem to come out of nowhere at tax time... pun intended ;-)

Old Wom Tigley said...

oh thats sure is odd... now then where can I get one of those costumes in size xxxxx.

Kim said...

It's Tax season? Just kidding :) I actually haven't done mine yet, that's my husbands job :)

archiearchive said...

Very odd way of advertising accountancy work :)

DeeMom said...

GADS they have those PEOPLE here…
HATE TAX TIME

Katney said...

I have also stopped and taken a picture of the Liberty guy/gal? Does yours dance about? Do you sometimes have one in a red Liberty costume? And, the oddest of all, have you ever, as I have, seen three of them outside the same office at the same time?

That was truly odd.

AVCR8TEUR said...

I had to do a double-take when I saw your picture of the guy in the costume! I am currently traveling in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area and I saw another guy in EXACTLY the same costume. It must be a Liberty Income Tax company thing. Haha!

madretz said...

LOL, after quickly glancing at some of your comments, I realize that this Statue of LIberty person is not uncommon because I saw the same thing in a town nearby as well! But the kid had on sunglasses and a bandanna around mouth and nose (He looked like a bank robber) so no one could identify him. I suspect if his buddies from school saw him, they'd give him a hard time over it. :)
