Door to Door Sales part II
Honestly, I didn’t think I’d be writing a sequel to my previous entry regarding door to door sales people. But last night, I got rudely interrupted again, while working in the office.
It’s already annoying enough that my evening is disturbed, especially as I live in an area that does not allow soliciting, but what boggles my mind is how rude these people are becoming!
Last night, the salesman was trying to sell us their gas services. And it only dawned on me that the most aggressive and rude people are those working for these other gas companies.
After politely explaining to him that this is a condominiumized area, and that we all are serviced by the main gas company, he accused me of ‘selling him stories’. Was I? I was pretty sure I was being honest, but even if I was wrong, I told him that this area is protected from any soliciting.
He looked at me and sarcastically said, “Oh yeah… soliciting.”
I couldn’t believe it. Where would the line be drawn here from soliciting or harrassment? I suppose he would have to continually come to my door, but when you get so many different salespeople come and treat you the same way, all from different companies, the total sum certainly does fell like one massive harrassment.
I sometimes try to approach of not answering but he looked like one of our security guards. What I might do is resort to installing an intercom.
At our next board meeting, I will bring this up and request for higher security and more of those NO SOLICITING signs be placed around our area.
