When I heard feet on my porch I was pist that they (3 of them) ignored my No Soliciting signs, so I quick shucked off my shirt and cutoffs and opened the door nude 'n' showin' and those two guys and their girl accomplice were speechless! Turned out to be JW canvassers, I let them get their eyes full then said that I'd stand there and talk as long as they wanted, then I reached down and scratched my junk. Think it all was the first she ever saw! They left. How do you handle trespassers?

Hell, you might have converted THEM!!

How do I handle them? I look out a window and if I don't want to answer the door, I don't.

That's awesome West Cove Dave ... make them leave to go get their magnifying glasses and then when they come back you are gone! Brilliant!

I let my wife deal with them as she can be most unnerving at times...her folks were scammed out of thousands by soliciters years ago...

I hate when the J W people and the Mormons come knocking. I open the door and call my big dog to come visit. Once they see her they all make it known they have other places to be.

If they knock when I'm in the back of the house I let the dogs bark, its usually enough to make them leave.

I do make a point of asking why they think I'm not able to know my own mind or look for the things I might need, rather than having people waste my time.

JW or Morons don't matter! I tell then I'm Jewish and very happy with my religion...... If it's something else I tell them I'm very busy! If that don't work and I know their prices I give the I pay this and know they can't beat it! I did that the other day! Sales people for all kinds of things are out here all of the time.........

I just stand there and say>

But, I 'll tell 'em you called'

Country? That stops them out where your at???

Not here! They love us out here in the country where I live!

Any of them sales, religion, what ever you can think of!

Books, vacuums, dish, religious, political, meats, but never any trick or treating! They like to go into town for that!

I hate it at Walmart when kids stand by the door and ask for money for their baseball team or what ever! The parents need to teach their kids the importance of working for things and not having it handed to them. I would give them money only if they were selling something plus a little more!
