The kind of day I've had.

Beware of bitch.

I had to make this sign and put it up today. This is what happens when you get a sunny, beautiful day in Oregon. They all come out and start knocking on your door.

I live in the first house on the corner of a cul-de-sac. We're constantly getting people at our door wanting to sell something, wanting to share something, wanting anything. We put up the generic No Soliciting sign and it's not doing the job.

I show them the sign and tell them not to solicit here. They insist they're not selling anything. Which is true for a lot of them. But that still doesn't mean they're not soliciting. It got to one point that I kept the dictionary by the door so I could read them the definition. Now I've just made the darn sign hoping it'll keep them away.


  1. I have the same sign and the same problem. Urgh!

  2. Drives me nuts Mary! If you're going to go to people's homes you should know what Soliciting means. Honestly, I'd be more likely to read whatever literature they're trying to give me if they picked up a dictionary more often.
