Our neighbourhood is constantly getting energy company reps, except at least one of the companies does not send people door to door, so those ones are just trying to get more info.  Some of the alarm companies are a bit concerning too, they try to get info so they can then use it to sell something to your neighbour.

Irishb:  I was a single parent for a while.

1. do not open the door to anyone you do not know, whether hubby is home or not.

2. as you are going to the door, shout out “I’ll get the door , honey” so they think someone else is at home.

I don’t answer the door, even if it’s during the day and my husband is home. I mean, if it’s someone that I know then sure but a stranger, nope. I don’t want whatever they’re selling anyway. Unless it’s Girl Scout cookies but I haven’t seen them door-to-door in several years.

Door to door soliciting is actually illegal in my town. Gotta love small town living! Anyone soliciting has to have approval from the town selectman. Comcast came around recently, they have some agreement with the town but we were sent a message (via text system our town uses) notifying us they would be coming and what car they would be in. 

I don’t think I would answer the door. I would let my husband if he was home otherwise I would ignore the person and call the cops of they didnt leave.

We get these door-to-door salesmen all the time! Sometimes it wont be for awhile, then it will be several times a month. I get the meat salesman, the gutter salesman, the security salesman, and the cleaning salesman comes by the most. He even asked if he could come into my house to clean my carpet!! Are you kidding me??!!! OF COURSE you can’t come into my house!!! I don’t usually answer the door, but we have a glass door right by the kitchen and if I’m in the kitchen they can see me so I can’t just run and hide..
