Default Sign on the front door

Since we have people banging on the front door trying to offer their crud I made a sign.

It comments:
I kill every third person who is in sales, religious activist or political individual and the second one just left.
Have a nice day!

That's cute Steve. Neighbors have a door mat that says "Dogs are hungry, please knock"

I can not stand solicitors.

I too have a simple sign posted on my door. If they come anyways, I ask them if they have the proper permit to go door to door in my neighborhood. Most don't know you are supposed to do that first. If they don't, I ask them to leave our sub or I do have the right to phone the police. It also amazes me that they think the sign posted doesn't include them!

I never have called, but some are so annoying, I've been tempted.

I know they just are making a living, but if I'm interested I will find you. Don't come after me. That includes emails, phonecalls, or even PM's. Now you can't even walk through the mall without at least 4 people chasing you.

I just think we get way too much pushed at us...

My two cents...

Tina

If I'm not expecting anyone, I just don't answer the door. Its not safe for a woman alone to open a door to a stranger.

Ah, the beauty of living in the sticks - even makes dial-up internet worth it!

This is SO true! Unfortunately, during our last election, "someone" who was not affiliated with one of the candidates set up a recorded message that called a lot of people, irritating the h**l out of them! Many people were very upset to have the "candidate" call them!

We had three calls for him, and they weren't "real". There should be some way to stop these calls!

The last time the Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door, here is a quote of what I said to them:

"I'm sorry, but we worship the Dark Angel here, and he will be furious if he sees us talking to you guys"..... I made sure to glance around nervously......

They didn't know what to say to that. I guess it's not in the manual yet.
