Help - they won't leave me or my letterbox alone!
I can be quite an irritable sort from time to time, so in order to stop me from frenziedly stabbing a clothes peg salesperson, I’ve now attached one of these signs (pictured) to my front door.
Crucially, it’s right next to the letter box, so that anyone who tries to stuff a takeaway menu through, or fancies rat-a-tat-tatting before trying to introduce me to Jesus, can clearly see that I actually want them to piss off quickly instead.
But it’s not working. They’re just ignoring it and already this week I’ve received six various advertising leaflets and have been forced to swear at a lanky, creepy god-botherer. Where now?
I’ve already decided that any menus, or ad leaflets that have addresses on will be anonymously returned to the sender, without a stamp on the envelope, so that the offending advertisers can incur the postage when they get it back. Still not sure what to do about the personal callers though. A snappy one-remark-fits-all response is needed.
Suggestions welcome from the Bitterwallet Massive, along with any anecdotage you’ve got about dealing with this seemingly unstoppable git-flood. Cheers.
