doesn't anyone think the salesman could be pretending to know sign language? Probably not the first time he has met "deaf" people

Or OP could've just not answered the door. It easier just to not make any noise and pretend you're not home than acting like a fool.

Is it really that hard to tell people to fuck off nowadays? Sure, you could be less blunt, but simply saying "No, I'm not interested" could save you so much time and awkwardness.

I agree. When someone comes to the door to ask if I would like to purchase something or hear about the good lord, I just tell them I am not interested. They might be annoying, but they are people too with desires and everyone needs a job. Save everyone time and just tell them to go away.

How hard can it be to just not answer the door, or politely decline and shut the door promptly?

#103, when you said that I just imagine that picture of the cat with the dilated, creepy eyes saying "Your soul, it was delicious"

I agree, people take things waaaay too seriously on here... This is exactly why Facebook does NOT need a dislike button. There are too many haters. Lighten the Fuck up!

#101 I'm pretty sure "fuck you" is the most universal saying for the middle finger... what does it mean where you live? "Have a great day"?

With how persistent they can be these days pretty damn hard. Some will stand at your door for a good half hour before giving up.

33 - I just say, "No thank you" and close the door. No need to stand around and listen to them ramble on MY front step.

It's really hard. it's hard to get rid of Jahova Witnesses too. I always tell them about how I'm a Satanist and that if they don't get the hell off my porch I'll send my demons after them. I'm not really a Satanist, BTW.

Reply

#45 I'm guessing saying you are a satanist only triggers them to talk more and encourages them to stay?

Reply

It's easy for me to say no to a salesman since I live in a trailer court. The management does not allow them unless they have permission, and very few of them have the time to get it. Outside of the occasional flier the only salesman I get is the ice cream man in his truck.

45-you can send your demons after me. I'll exorcize them to the bottomless pits of the Underworld.

#5 Saying, "I'm broke as fuck!" works too. (: And also I'm not a Jehovah's Witness but most of my extended family are; nothing personal #45 but I hate when people constantly put them down. JW will respect your wishes if you simply ask them not to return to your property. They take notes and will share it with the rest of the Kingdom Hall members. I hate how they get such a bad reputation when they just mean well. Treating them like shit make you that in my eyes.

Reply

Maybe in your neck of the woods JW's respect people's wishes, but not where I am from. After repeatedly telling them I was not interested, and telling them not to waste their resources by putting their flyers in my mail box, they STILL drop off their propaganda and STILL try and gain access to my property to spread "the good word". Not even my cantankerous 87 year old grandmother can get them to give it up.

Reply

I don't know what to tell you. Sorry, but in the back of my mind I have doubt that you're as accurate as you might think. Maybe the dropping off the flyers etc.... happened "before you actually asked them not to bother you?". The organization are taught to all think similar and follow rules (your rules of "no trespassing" included) Why they wouldn't in your neighbourhood puzzles me. Also they are responsible to pay for those flyers personally-- out of pocket. They usually won

Reply

No, the dropping off of the flyers happened directly after I asked them to go away. They asked if they could leave some flyers behind. I said no. I told them I will just throw them away. They told me they were going to leave them anyway, and did. Might just be that the JW's in South Africa are more tenacious/rude?

Reply

Just answer the door with what looks like a bloody knife and a joker smile. Say that the homeowners can't come to the door right now

Reply

I live in the US and I have rude JWs and Mormons come to my house weekly. We finally called the police on many of them because they are so rude. I put up a sign asking people with religious messages not to come up to the door, but they ignore the huge fucking sign.

not every deaf person knows sign you could have gotten away with it, but anyways your kind of a prick for faking being handicap. it's insulting.

Asparagus, if your going to insult someone's grammer, at least make sure you spell things rite. There grammer wasn't even that bad anyway, so your the prick.

31- I wasn't aware proper grammar was required on a flapping app with the name that has 3 initials. how about you proof read your comments before you leave me and ignorant reply and ironically misspell exactly what your complaining about. tard.

Or maybe he knew you were pretending to be deaf and was pretending to know sign language. If at some point it looked like he was doing the robot, he probably was.

Reply

Well deaf people sometimes have lights that flash wired to a doorbell to alert them when someone's at the door. If OP had a doorbell then it's not entirely unbelievable that he could have answered the door.

Just from reading some of these, I now have a wide array of options if answering the door to unwelcome people :O

You deserve it. Grow up, act like a proper adult, and just tell them you're "not interested" next time.

Reply

Oh yuck!!! That has actually happened to me before. The poor guy had Down's syndrome. It was a quick "ok bye now."

Reply

My best guy friend and I answered the door once, naked and covered in fake blood once. He even had this thing on his phone where it played a screetching cat noise. The guy practically ran screaming down the street when we glared and shouted at him for interrupting our sacrifice.

Reply

Personally, I just stand there and look at them disapprovingly through the glass on my front door and shake my head until they leave.
