Door-to-door sales take a scary turn
I think something needs to be done about the recent rush of pushy door to door salesmen in the area. I know several people who are scared to answer their door anymore and I don’t blame them.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand they are trying to pay their bills like the rest of us – but the anger and rudeness they exude is becoming too much to deal with. I have had three or four salesman in the last year alone scare me. Sometimes they yell if you don’t agree to give them your information. And recently they have been coming back after we tell them we are not interested (trespassing?).
I know that it’s not illegal to sell door to door, but maybe it should be. It used to be middle school students and friendly salesman, and now it’s half drunk and mean teams of people walking around the neighborhood like organized gangs. It’s really starting to cause fear in the community.
I advise all residents to stop answering your doors before asking who it is, and don’t answer at all if it’s someone you don’t know. Chances are, you are going to get into an unnecessary fight with a salesman if you do.
