Just Save Your Breath

, , , , , , | Working | February 9, 2021

My doorbell rings. I look out to see two representatives of an energy company I’ve never heard of standing at the front door. I open the door and look at them without saying a word.

Rep: “Hello! We’re with [Company] and we’d like to talk about saving you some money on your electricity.”

As he talks, I slowly and deliberately go from looking at them to leaning out of my door to look at the prominent “NO SOLICITING” sign I have posted. Yep, it’s still there.

The rep falters a bit but continues his spiel.

As he talks, I go from looking back and forth from them to the sign, to pointing at it while staring at them with raised eyebrows. I still haven’t said a word.

Rep: *Indignantly* “Look, we’re just trying to save you some money!”

Me: “And you think the best way to attract new customers is by breaking the law?”

Ignoring a “No Soliciting” sign is against a city ordinance.

Rep: “…”

Me: “Goodbye.”

Rep: “Well, you don’t have to be such a—”

The door shut before I heard what a “such a” he thought I was.
