I have a sign up on my front door saying 'do not knock' ... well a girl collecting for some charity knocked today and when I (stupidly) opened the door, she tried to engage in chit-chat with my kids. When I asked her did she not see the sign, responded 'oh i'm not selling anything, I'm collecting for bla bla bla'. When I said I'm not interested she hit me with the guilt trip 'oh don't you want to help save the children' and a very passive-aggressive 'Have a nice day then" etc etc etc.
Grrr its MY doorbell you rang and MY time you are taking up, I realise you are just doing your job but *don't* hit me with a guilt-trip because i say i'm not interested. I have nothing against donating to charity, don't get me wrong, but i object to people shoving donation boxes in my face and then guilt-tripping me on my own frigging doorstep
OK vent over.
Obviously charities etc are exempt from the donotknock register. How would you get them to stop ringing the doorbell? Any suggestions for wording for a sign I make myself? Any other ideas?
