The weirdest thing happened today! I had just out my 9month old down for a nap and of coarse the door bell rang. I rushed downstairs and opened the door to find a sales person talking on his mobile. I had the security screen kicked abd he couldn’t see be but u could see him and I asked if I could help him, to which he first ignored abd continued with his conversation abd then I said excuse me, can I help you abd he replied, ‘what a minute’, not to the person on the phone but to me who’s door he just rang. I was shocked and said I’m not interested in whatever your selling and he had the nerve to reply nah wait a sec. I shut the door and didn’t let him keep me waiting at my own front door.

  • Don’t worry about spelling mistakes. It is quite easy to see how it could happen.
    If you know which company he was from, I would have been tempted to report him. The only trouble is you don’t what he might do if you did. At my previous address, I had a front screen door like that. I frightened a few people who rang the bell, then didn’t realise I was standing there.

    • I do that often and there’s no way to edit!! One handed typing is tricky. I can’t believe the nerve of that person. Good on you for sticking up for yourself. Us mummas don’t have time to waste When our babies sleep

  • I would have waited to find out what company he was representing to let them know. If they are paying him to do a job they deserve to know how badly he behaved

  • How rude! I doubt he’ll last long in that type of job. I hope he didn’t wake your baby.

  • The nerve of him, thats why we have one of thoose signs on our door advising sales people not to knock on the door. That way i at least know its a genuine reason a person who knocks on the door. Usually a neighbour or a friend..

  • So I can’t imagine you will be seeing him again….likely a short history in sales.

  • It’s just mind boggling how rude some people are.

  • Well…..he will not be knocking again! You did the right thing.


    • This applies to anyone talking to you and also using a mobile phone – close the door, walk away and do not let them be rude!
