Door To Door Salespeople

Dear Sales Person Whom Cometh To Our Door Almost Everyday,

We live in a condinimium townhouse property. The signs at the entrance to such property states that no soliciting is allowed. This means:

No Charity.
No Selling.
Basically… not being a pest! Cause if we wanted to be bothered, we would have at least moved somewhere where the property isn’t protected.

You need to understand… this is an area where we pay maintenance fee to protect ourselves from any type of soliciting.

This would also mean that if I post a sign up on my door that THANKS those for not bothering us with any sales and charity, it’s meant to server a purpose. A purpose of not wasting time. Your time and ours.

This doesn’t mean you should still ring the doorbell. Because if you do, we will be even more enraged had the sign not been there in the first place.

This doesn’t mean you are allowed to vandelize our sign with questions like, “But you know the gas prices are going to rise?” We KNOW the gas prices are going to rise. Please… even the mere question is insulting and condescending.

This also doesn’t mean you should kick down our flower pot. That’s a distruction of private property. Last I checked, that is unlawful.

Finally, this doesn’t mean you should stand there and try to argue with me about what the word ‘soliciting’ really means because frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass. YOU are trying to sell to ME! If this is your way of trying to make a sale, I suggest you find another career path.

Having said that, I have called security on you and I’ll continue doing so. Since that is why I pay maintenance fee.

Regards, Shy.

PS – No we’re not interested in buying gas from you. This is a condiminium smartass… we have to get our gas from one source. If you want to sell it to our area, you need to talk to management.
