N-Power do this in 'our' area, used to wake me up when I was on Night shift. I'm back on permanent days now, so they'll be knocking on an empty house :)

Tell them you would invite them in to chat but you'd be breaking your restraining order from the state mental prison.



But you're willing to risk it...






...if they are :whistling:

I did a door notice for the inlaws, who are elderly and easily bewildered. Neatly lasered (Inkjet would fade quicker) in a fetching yellow text on red background (difficult to miss), laminated and stuck in their porch window, it was something along the line of :

NO MARKETING CALLS
NO MARKET RESEARCHERS
WE DO NOT BUY FROM DOORSTEP SALES
WE DO NOT TAKE PART IN MARKET RESEARCH

Protectacoat, made the mistake of having them round on Monday night, 8pm appointment turned up at 8.40pm and didn't leave till 11.30pm!!! To cut a long and boring sales pitch short the price for their 'space age' 'magical' coating for a 20 years guarantee for everything (right!), anywho started at £8500 for the front of the house and went down to £3500.............. !

Hard selling tactic which I was not at all having any of, tonight only prices....AVOID AVOID AVOID,

I have since read up on them and they are slated for this hard sell and have a team of people going around the web having posts like this removed or some one joining the forum to say how good they are.

I await them.........

And to think I was going for a job selling British Gas products in ppls homes, thankfully I wasn't good enough and I'll get 8k more in the job I got instead :-D
#21
Only people to knock on my door are 'N Power' Im never in and think they lie in wait but they get no joy as five years ago one of there guy's signed 5 houses up in our street and we didn't know till we got a letter from British Gas. So I tell them they've 30 seconds to leave the garden before I cal police and we've also told trading standards and they know about the cold calling and looking into it.
