Ugh that’s so rude. I always get charity people at my door who ask for my parents because we live in a nice neighbourhood where we’re younger than most other people here by a good twenty years, LOL! Maybe next time just cut the conversation off with asking again for a card or whatever and close the door.

As a side note, to get rid of the door to door people I usually just ask for a pamphlet or their info because I don’t give donations at the door. We give money to charity each year, but only to the charity’s of our choosing, not to each person to knocks on our door.

Ugh I hate people that come to my door to sell anything and hate when they try to have a conversartion with me.

That was rude of him! We don’t get people door to door since you need a key to get into our courtyard, but there are a lot of people who stand on the street and say “do you have a moment for the environment?” or whatever. In regards to age, why get married so soon, etc I always say, “well, we’ve been together for about six years, so it doesn’t feel soon to us!”

We got married because we didn’t want to let something like spending life with the one you love to slip away :). Dating is one thing, but marriage is the only symbol that expresses true love >.<. (in my opinion anyway, hehe)

I am 22 and FH is 23.

When I’m feeling fiesty, the conversation goes like this:
-“How old are you?”
-“Didn’t your mother ever tell you it’s rude to ask a lady her age?” Hehe.

For whatever reason, people have no qualms asking a young lady her age, but would never ask an older lady her age.

FH & I are homeowners and sometimes people come to the door and ask if my parents are home. HA! I generally don’t want to deal with solicitors so I say my parents are not home. 🙂

@JenniMichele: LOL We just moved into our subdivision and people are either looking at us in a “surprised” way because we are much younger than them and they wonder how we can afford this house or because they are the first african americans on the block. Either way I find it funny. lol

This is why I don’t EVER answer the door unless I know who’s on the other side. We have a small window upstairs in our guest room that I run and look out of to see if I see any cars I recognize. If I don’t, I don’t answer. I don’t even answer it if my SO’s home, I make him answer it.

Couldn’t tell you whether this is because I’m 22 and a paranoid girl, or because I just don’t like door-to-door salesmen. Could be both.

I think some people are just flabbergasted that a person has some of their life goals so close at such a young age. The idea that the typical “early twenties party scene” doesn’t appeal to everyone is shocking to people who wanted that life. Oh well, if you know, you know.
