Why do you need to hide? You both know you're in the house, and it's his time he's wasting if he keeps knocking. Just go about doing what you'd normally do and he'll get bored. You do realise it's not some kind of wacky scenario where you opening the door to him is inevitable, right?

Exactly. I usually tell these people Im not interested! -_- you would think the "no soliciting" sign under the door bell is hint enough.

He should also check to make sure it's not something important, one time this "salesmen" wouldn't go away, and when my mother finally asked him what he wanted, he said he was the U-Verse guy, and there was problems in the area with signal he needed to warn us about.

He's selling a new flavor of Cheetos. I think that's at least worth a blow to the balls.

Exactly. You can be a normal adult about it and have the 2-second conversation it would take. Stop being such a coward. Do you deal with all your problems by running and hiding?

It's totally legal to go door to door and sell or ask for charitable donations, most of the time these people have permits to do so as well. Plus, calling the cops on someone for just knocking on your door is a pretty big overreaction.

I'm aware that the OP hadn't asked him to go away. In Denmark, ringing people's doorbells to sell them stuff they haven't signed up for is generally prohibited by law, but I realize it may not be so in other countries - which is why I suggested telling him to go away first. I'm pretty sure staying on someone's property and banging on their door despite being asked to leave is considered trespassing and harassment no matter what.

Where I live you have to ask them to leave your property. If they don't you could legally arrest them yourself for trespassing as long as you call the police immediately.

I can give you a follow up now: "Then he got tired of wasting his time with me and left." This isn't exactly the most extreme FML we've ever read here, c'mon..

Journal Entry 09/04/13 "It's been three weeks now and I think they are multiplying. The first one set up camp shortly after I posted my FML and a few minutes after that I heard knocking on the backdoor, then one on the window, and I'm pretty sure I hear a few on the roof. I've started to ration my food now and my couch fort is two couches wide and three couches high. What am I going to do!? Journal Entry 2014???? My food supplies have been gone for a week or so now and the real hunger is eating me alive. I might be hallucinating, but I've been here do long I can no longer tell what is real and what isn't. Who's to say magazine subscriptions didn't always have teeth? Or dust bunnies have discussions on particle physics? I know I'm going to die, but to whoever is reading this: let it be known I never bought anything from those annoying maniacs!
