We on this review have a rough, unofficial quota of documents we need to get through in a day, which now that at least I am acclimated to the task, is not a problem. But still interruptions are interruptions and the more spent dealing with such, the less work gets done.
Son and wife unit are one thing, but strangers knocking on the door are another. About an hour ago, I hear a tap tap tap on the front door. Son take a look from the kitchen and tells me he thinks there’s a Mormon outside.
Go to the door, the gut has on a white shirt, black tie and has 2 pens in his breast pocket, but no Mormon as he doesn’t sport a name tag.
Open the door and ask what he wants and am told he wants to sell magazines (see no order forms) and I should help him become independent. He also does not identify himself or who he represents.
The back and forth goes on for a minute or so until I finally have to tell him he’s being politely told to go for the last time. Only then does this person given up and leave the property an reluctantly at that.
Have no qualms about helping those in need of help, and door to door sales is never an easy thing, but this person was more persistent than he should have been, which raised red flags with me, and no one likes to be thought of as an easy mark either.
