don't even knock

is this clear enough? 

we have a new No Soliciting sign..
don't  even ring or knock...
we don't want to by anything, sell anything,
give anything away, have anything given to us,
including: alarms, carpet cleaning, solar panels,
gardening, religious info..etc...etc..

a few weeks ago I opened the door to find a pest control guy...
apparently he didn't know what No Soliciting actually meant. 
I pointed out we had a sign, "No Soliciting" and he said in 
his best Keanu Reeves voice....."DEFINITELY!" 
ok, but you are still standing here soliciting.

Then he went on to say, "Welllll, your neighbors have bugs
and I am here about the bugs." Oh, ok, that is 
still considered soliciting, but maybe if I 
tell him we have a pest control service he'll get it?
So I relay this info to him and he says again
hummmm? with that he pivoted and walked away...
good luck buddy!

haha love your sign. None of them get it!! It's like they have selective VISION. they choose to completely ignore the sign. always.

This is how I started feeling about the amish after the amish kid flipped off my husband and a bunch of other lifetime memories came back to my frontal lobe. Well, anyway, hopefully you don't have the bugs that the neighbors apparently seem to have a problem with!

That's when I close the door in said solicitors face. That burns me up! Anyway, I like the sign. :)
