|Art & Lettering by Bob Toben|
I used to live in a neighborhood where door-to-door soliciting was a major problem. My wife and I placed a NO SOLICITING sign on the door and they still knocked. When we pointed out the sign they claimed they were not soliciting but were informing people of a new business. If that's the case then put a pamphlet or a flyer in my mailbox. If you are going door-to-door then you are expecting to interact with people and solicit them for your goods and services. A good way to get rid of them is to ask for a copy of their solicitors permit required by the city, township, or county allowing them to go door-to-door.
You know what really stinks? I haven't seen a single kid selling candy bars door-to-door lately. That's a shame. What I have noticed is that they're selling crap. One kid was selling some god-awful loaf of bread for his high school marching band, which was some questionable concoction of high fructose corn syrup and asbestos. I gave him a dollar and told him to keep the bread. I bet the kids have to sell bread because some wet blanket of a parent wrote a letter to the school board and complained about kids selling candy bars.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the comics.
