Door to Door Sellers

What do you think of them?

We just had someone today knock on our door trying to get us to switch Gas companies, I think in this day and age having a stranger come to your door to sell you something you never asked for is well out of order.

    My mate used to be an alarm salesman, but he got sacked because he broke his curfew by going to a rave.

    The whole thing is disgraceful. It should be banned outright.

    They bug me, if i wanted something i would get it if we could afford it. Don't need anyone coming to sell me anything, especially those stupid vouchers you pay more than they are worth.

    Gas company people are annoying, and get told to bog off.

    annoying and pointless.

    if i want to buy dishcloths or change religion or find a new gas supplier, i'll go do it.

    you turning up at my door just makes me not want to have any dealings at all with your company.

    Yeah the fact they're on my door puts me right off with one exception ...

    Window Cleaners .. they're the only kind of business I kinda feels is justified in going door to door

    I usually don't answer the door to them but sometimes it's the bloke coming to check the meter so i never know.

    I could have got a job as one of those people selling gas door to door, because my boyfriends dad is quite high up in a compnay and employs lots of people to do this but i really couldn't haress people for a living.
    They do make quite a few sales a day though so someone must actaulyl sit and listen to them and they set you targets and bonus's which i guess is why some people are so persitant in trying to tell you their mumbo jumbo,

    I find that they hound you down aswell, while i'm trying to get to the staff entrance and everything. Standing there with thier clipboards badgering people who are clearly in a hurry :p
    Someones got to do the job i guess, sometimes i like to let them go on with their speach full swing and then they go are you 18 i just lie and say no, pisses them off quite a bit.

    Thankfully, we don't have door sellers in this area where I live. But unfortunately, what we have instead are daily phone calls from call centres, most probably situated in India, asking us if we want to buy things like home insurance, a brand new kitchen, or new telephones. Being able to speak Welsh though means I can pretend I don't understand what they're saying, which always get them laughing.
