Do you get a lot of solicitors knocking on your door?

In the past week I have had so many solicitors at my house. Its annoying!

Thursday, I had a guy try to sell me meat out of a pick up truck.

Friday, Jehovah's witnesses were pimping out their 6 year old son to tell me about Jehovah.

Yesterday, a dump truck pulled up asking if I wanted to buy gravel.

And a few minutes ago some young guy wanted to introduce me to some learning system for my kids.

Ugh!

No we live in a gated complex. So we don't get any solicitors really. Every once in awhile we'll get someone from time warner knocking on our door asking about our service. But that's about it. We have some local delivery people that come around too. They don't knock tho. They just leave menus on door.

Nope. Not at all. I've never had that issue. We had someone passing out pamplets about the county fair the other day but that's about it.

Not a lot. We haven't had one in 2 months now I think?

No, we've only had a handful solicitors over the years. I have no problem saying "no thank you" and shutting the door.

I live way out in the country and I've never had this problem until recently. We've been here 3 years now.

When we first moved in (whole neighborhood was new construction) we got TONS.  Selling us all sorts of things for the house.
