Just curious i was at my moms today and she let one in while my two young kids were there. He was selling beef but i got a look at his van and it wasnt labled and when he opened the back there was NOTHING in it. He was very odd and came back into her house and started to tell her he heals people with his hands and showing her videos. My oldest son was very quiet with him there which isnt like him. He was hovering over the two if them when i said he had to ho because i didnt like a strange man in the house with my young children. Also he never told my mom a company or even show a card. The worst part my three year old said he saw a knife...wtf?!? I wad upset she let him in and she regretted it instantly i guesd the guy pretty much walked in while i was putting my baby to nap....

I don't generally let them in unless they have a city permit to sell and information like a business card.

Nope, they can't even get to our front door without being buzzed through the gate. If they tried to come in over the gate they would set off the alarm and would then be met by our dog and me with a shotgun pointed at them.

No, I don't even open the storm/security door, I only open the wood door and tell them no thank you. There are also plenty of times I don't open the door @ all.

Nope.
There's a meat company around here that delivers door to door and had stopped by at our neighbors to deliver their order and while there asked if I wanted to buy some. I was actually outside atm.They had cards and a freezer in their truck with, you guessed it meat, in it. We talked outside.

Normally no, I will speak with them through the door and even the times I may have been interested I went outside and talked to them.
