Time for your (honest) opinions/experiences.
You all know that I work from ____________
Yes, home if you guessed the answer.
You all know I'm paid on ___________
Two for two, I bet some of you are 100% at this point of the quiz. But wait, there's more!
So what would be two of my main distractions to working? (Not counting Facebook because that's not really a distraction, I keep on it for family and I do my blog reading before work and in the evening).
My two biggest distractions would be _______ and _________
Phone and people ringing the doorbell.
Now in my case, the phone is not a distraction. I do not pick it up except for hubby, son, DIL, and my work. I keep it short and sweet too with those I talk to because time is _________.
So now that we are in Phoenix, we are being baraged by a lot of door to door salesmen. Windows, house painting, solar (that was my funnest one. He had the audacity to try to sell his product while he was looking down at his cell phone the entire time......hmmm.....and I'm going to buy your product because of???????) He even had more of an audacity when he came a week later to follow up and he still was looking down at his cell phone. I politely said "no thank you" but did offer him water. (Its my standard thing, I'll say "no" but will offer them water, its hot here most of the year).
When we lived in Prescott, we lived in (tough question, worth 50 extra points if we were counting points) a __________ community.
Gated!! Yea!! I know some of you got that one.
We never had door to door salesmen. When we were in the San Diego area, when people came to the door I would tell them I didn't own the house (which wasn't a lie because technically I didn't own the house, it was in hubby's name).
Now I own the house and I don't live in a gated community.
And one by one all solicitors seem to come to our door.
And another bonus question. If you have been reading my blog for a bit, you know that I work by a ___________ that directly faces the __________ and the _____________ across the street.
(window, street, neighbors) Give yourself an extra 100 points if you got that right.
Okay, so now I'm at the point of my whole post. Thanks for sticking with me.
Do "No Solicitation" signs work??? We were thinking of putting one up, but are they effective?? Would it keep the Jehovah Witnesses away?? (Honestly, its nice they evangelize but "no I'm busy, I'm working, I can't talk") should be a sign that yes, I'm busy, I'm working, I can't talk. I saw them coming the other day and closed my blinds so they couldn't see in and see me and then when they rang the doorbell I felt guilty so I had to get the door.
Would I still get the door if there was a sign there?
I've never put up a "No Solicitation" sign.
Really want to know your opinions either way and its okay if you do enjoy the door to door salesmen. I know they are just out there to do their job, but so am I when I'm trying to work.
