No One's Home...

Am I the only one who absolutely hates when people I don't know knock on my door? And added to that they are usually trying to sell me something I have no interest in buying whether it's a sales person or a Jehovah's Witness trying to convert me.

There is just something about someone entering my personal space and intruding on my life for no good reason that really bothers me. This is my house and how dare you put your finger on my doorbell and expect me to listen to your sales pitch and on top of that expect me to buy into it.

Last night my husband answered a knock on the door at 8 pm and to his surprise it was a college girl selling something- he's not sure what because she had a sales pitch and wanted to talk to the person who was in charge of teaching the children (which he said was me but I feel like the only thing I teach them is that they better be good because their mommy is on the verge of a nervous breakdown). Not only do I have an issue with her knocking on my door to sell me junk that I don't need but she did this at 8 pm- I know that it is still light out at 8 pm but that just seems a bit too late to have a stranger imposing on my life.

How do I deal with rude sales people/religious people who bother the tranquility of my day? I just don't answer my door anymore. Yes, even if they know I am home I don't answer my door. It is their right to try and bother me for their own personal gain but I also have the right to ignore them so that they will move on to some other sucker on my street.
