If the FML said, 'I rang this guys doorbell at 3am to get money for charity and he yelled at me and threw a paper', I wonder how many people would change their vote. Regardless of the cause or whether or not there was a sign. Can't really blame the guy for expecting to sleep through what is basically his 'night'.

Ok, 53. How about if someone comes knocking on your door at 3 am to solicit for a charity? Or did you miss the part about him working nights?

151/178 - How was OP supposed to KNOW that this guy works nights? Was s/he supposed to look at his house and be like "Oh, he works nights; I won't bother him."

Doesn't really matter if they know or not... It's still irritating! People tend to ring the doorbell or knock more than once because there's a car in the driveway... I've never thrown a paper but I've definitely slammed a door or two!

53- you know nothing about me. I work with 4 different charities and help them organise events for them to raise money so please don't assume that you know the world as I am not selfish and lazy. the difference is that i know its fucking irritating when people bother you at home. rather organise an event to raise money as you would get much more and people don't have to be irritated. like you said some peolpe are to selfish so if they don't give during the year what makes you think that someone interupting them at their own homes will change their minds in order to give money?!

There's several ways to let people know you're not available (and at the same time not having to explain that you work at night) . A simple sign outside your door would be just enough.

I dunno, most people fail to read. I had a sign that clearly said "no sales people or solicitors"... And people still rang the damn bell to try sell me stuff. I took to just saying "read please" and shutting the door in their face. If you can't take the time to read, I can't take the time to listen.

There are signs at the start of every court in my condo city that say no soliciting (and they can get fined as per town ordinance for disobeying the signs). It's never stopped anyone before.

Badmandilon, he was likely mashing the doorbell button and "forgot" to mention that in the FML. Ringing the doorbell once wouldn't make someone instantly wake up, and he sure as hell wouldn't still be on the front porch by the time the guy got dressed, out of bed, and to the door. OP was likely being an obnoxious twat.

as someone who worked thirds i can understand him not wanting to be woke, but i always hung a sign on my door explaining this to people so they would not knock and wake me up so its his fault for not doing this. Whats a bell end????

I was thinking this very thing. If I worked nights, I'd be sure to hang a sign saying "do not disturb" or something. I'd probably also find a way to turn off my door bell with a switch so I could turn it on and off.

Except for the fact people are too dumb or self important to read such signs. I had one up while working as a programmer because I would be going to bed at 3-4 am so morning people where not appreciated. People still would ring my bell. When I disconnected that they would knock non stop.
