Telemarketers or Door to Door Solicitations?

I just had a knock at the door and was greeted with, “Hi I’m Joel, with the Democratic Party of Georgia...”. I just quickly told him “Not an F’n chance” and closed the door. For me, I just totally despise door to door solicitations, and you had better NOT leave a knob hanger for the crooks to see hanging on my door. I will call you up and explain the perceived safety issue for residents AND assure you I will never shop your establishment. Door hangers REALLY piss me off because it let’s crooks know who is home and who isn’t

Which do you dislike the most? Door to Door or the robocallers?

    Took care of the door to door salesmen coming around. Just hang a no trespassing sign. If they come in the yard they can be charged with criminal trespass in OH. Now robocalls and blind sales calls piss me off to no end. I get about ten a day now. It has cost me jobs I could have gotten in the past. Now if I accidentally pick up, I'll let them go through the their sales pitch and waste as much of their time as I can. Usually these people work commission only so they just lost all that time and some of them get really pissed off.

    I hate all the calls. I don't hate the callers though, most of them probably hate their jobs like a bad rash.

    Calls just because of volume. Don't see door to door people often

  • BankwalkerBankwalker Posts: 4,608 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    They ALL understood when they accepted the position that the job entailed bothering people.

    I once heard a comedian say he lets telemarketers go thru their whole spiel and then asks how this product will help them since he's going to kill himself whenever he gets off the phone with them.

    Also, check out Jim Florentine who has some albums called terrorizing telemarketers that are hilarious

    Bank. I have a niece who worked at a phone center while in college. She detested the work but it was something she could pretty much set her schedule on around her school work.

    I live in the sticks so I don't gotta worry about strangers at my door but I despise telemarketers with a passion.

    Door to Door Solicitations

    Telemarketers I can hang up on, door to door rings door bell and stands there waiting. Gets the wife fired up and then I have to explain my 3 5 7 security system.

    To take care door to door people I just let our Great Dane out and they hop back in their cars in a hurry.

    We have a phone line for internet only. I have no idea where a hand set is for a house phone so I don't deal with telemarketers.

    Robocalls: Some may be helped by nomorobo. com. It is free for home use but mobile costs. Home works on (certain) VOIP phones like Cox or Comcast. Need to set up Simultaneous ring, but your system may have other requirements. I have home but not mobile. If you have copper/POTS, you're screwed.

    For home, a robocall will ring once then stop. You can report a number that gets through so as to be added to the dating base. I usually check them through whitepages.com (I think you get a few check per month - donno but I don't subscribe) or another telephone number checking service; then report them to nomorobo.

    Easy one. I haven't had anyone knock on my door in years. Didn't even know that was still a thing what with the interwebs and all.

    Threads that have nothing to do with football in a football forum, that’s what I dislike most.

    I have currently have Fios and you can enable the nomorobo directly from your Fios login - I used to have Cablevision [yes I have a choice!] and it works for them also.

    They have a pay app that works on cell phones too.
