Default Solicitation at 8:45pm....Really

AT&T knocking on the front door at 8:45pm asking me if I want to see how U-verse can benefit me. Dog starts barking and going crazy which wakes up the 2yr old, now he's wide awake from a small nap. Thanks AT&T

I been solicited many many times later than 8:45 PM.... Usually between 10PM and 4am. But, I was in my Semi truck, in a truckstop and a couple of the whores didn't even have teeth, and I think one had a cock. Consider yourself lucky.

I had a young African American fellow knock on my door asking for money for his school sport after 9pm, he looked to be over 20, i was nice, but wanted to tear him a new one.

If you sign up for Uverse, they stop knocking at your door at 8:45. There's your benefit.

Opeing the door with a ball gag on usually makes solicitors feel awkward.

No matter what the time of day, I ask every solicitor who comes to my door while I am home to see their city issued soliciting permit. Usually they quickly turn around and head to the next house. The couple that have gotten mouthy (somebody trying to sell me windows and somebody trying to sell me snow plow services) get the cops called on them once they leave.

Thankfully, police in my neighborhood don't have much else to do so they respond very quickly to those calls for soliciting without a permit.

By springfield armory, I am pretty sure you meant "I performed the fellatio on him so he would leave"

I enjoy tormenting solicitors if they show the slights sign of being a prick.

Never had the late night knock on the door, but years ago the Jehovah's Witness couple knocked on the door at 8:00 am on a Sunday. Since I was single at the time and had been out partying the night before, I looked my best when I answered the door wearing an Alice Cooper concert T (Yes, I'm old) and croaked out something along the lines of 'HHHRRREeEEEEAAAAAUUUUGGGGHHHHH'

Never had another Jehovah Witness stop by at that house again.

Man I remember those days. People coming to my door unannounced ringing the door bell walking up my son when he was 2 and younger regretted ringing my door bell. I chewed people out.

We had no soliciting signs and beware of dog signs and people would still do it.

My father in law has had the same thing happen several times as an OTR driver. Most recently, one knocked on his door while eating a piece of chicken, he rolled down his window to see what she wanted. She offered, and of course he declined, but most curious to him was where the fawk she got the fried chicken at 4 am.

We have a no soliciting sign by the doorbell and most understand and leave without ringing the bell. One 'gent' rang and I pointed to the sign and he said, with a grin, "I'm not soliciting". I figured he was an idjut and explained that coming up to my house to sell anything is soliciting.

He looked at me and started going into his sales pitch. I said,"Mudge come". Mudge was a 240 pound Mastiff with a head the size of a basketball. Mudge, being next to me in the house which was a step higher than the outside steps, was nearly the same height as this idjut. The idjut grew very large eyes and ran, telling his two women 'helpers' to hurry and get back in the car.
