    I even have a door sign that is right in front of their eyes when they ring the bell that states i do not need religion,gas,electric or any other service thankyou,makes me wonder if they think what the heck and knock anyway:x

    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

    i let my dog at em. he dont bite but he barks like a good un. The last Energy guy said 'i dont like dogs' ....... i said 'he doesnt like salesmen' and watched him run out the gate.........fool waited for me to bring my dog in but i didnt, i left him jumping at the gate. salesman soon left

    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...

    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 :

    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.........

    I've used protectacoat before, they're great, top notch and lovely to deal with, would reccomend them thoroughly, would you please remove that post above, or I will report you the the rspb.

    :w00t:

    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

    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.
