For those of you that go door to door

What signage can I put on my door or house that will make the religious people stop coming to my door? I don't like it, I think it's rude, and it seems to ALWAYS be at naptime when this happens. I just want it to stop.

  • You can put up a "No Solicitors" sign and simply add "Including Religious" if you think the basic sign won't work.

  • A couple of years ago I was constantly being bothered by this Jehova's Witness group, they took my refusal, door slamming etc... as encouragement. The last time I opened the door for them I took my scissors with me and cut off the front guy's tie, it was so unexpected he nearly cried. I'm not really proud of this but it worked. A sign might be more appropriate.

  • Next time they come to the door just tell them they are waking up your children and that you wish for them to not come back. Ask them to make a note not to knock on your door. They are parents too. They should respect you.

  • LOL... here I was trying to be nice with my initial response. In our town, you have to have a permit to go door to door and it states that if there is a sign that says "No Solicitors" then you can not approach that house regardless. It includes everyone. I don't have that sign. I have a stained glass pentacle on my door... it works just as good.

  • Also they don't stop knocking for like 10 minutes, not that is rude. I tried "No Soliciting" signs but that doesn't always work. Telling them face-to-face only encourages them to try harder. I've resorted to just going on "radio silence" until they go away. Sux, I agree.

    You shouldn't need to go door-to-door, if someone wants religion they'll come to you. Chances are they are already where they wanna be.

  • Proud Mama---- People like you are SOOO rude. I had a sign on my door asking not disturbing or soliciting until 12pm because it might wake the baby, yet almost every Saturday someone disturbed around 7am!!!! If I wanted to be a certain religion I WOULD. It pisses me the fuck off that people come at 7am almost EVERY Saturday to try and and turn. We have a damn baby. It wakes him up EVERY time!!! ARGH.
