Im a ADT sales rep. Have been for 13 yrs now and im the ONLY income for my family for 3. I find it amaizing how big of a stink everyones is making. As a matter of fact i am tired of the pesky churches and girl scouts knocking on my Grow up, and lighten up. If your not interested then just say your not interested and shut the door. But to "outlaw" a profesion because they took up 2 mins of your life, Well bless your little hearts. Much bigger issues to complain about than some people trying to make an honest dollar.

It amazes me how many of these people knocking on doors don't even know the meaning of 'soliciting'.

freely move about in their own neighborhood !!! people have a right to be comfortable in the homes they pay for, without being annoyed by their doorbell, or knocking, to be harrangued into buying something they could purchase at wal-mart !!! place a no soliciting sign upon your front door & ignore the bell, or better, disconnect it...

So in the name of a false sense of security you are willing to give up yours and others rights to freely move about. Stupid sheeple!
