    A sales guy just came to my door...

    Me: Hello?
    Them: Hello, are your parents in?
    Me: no.
    Them: Ok Ill come back later then (walks off).

    If he had asked "Are you the home owner" he would have found out that I am indeed the home owner and my parents do not live in my house.

    Has anyone else had the same thing? Why do people asume you live with your parents if you look young?

    I thought you were going to talk about some pervert. XP

    I think that people assume you live with your parents if you look young because it is the norm to them, maybe?

    My great aunt used to play the 'im an old vulnerable lady' game. She used to get calls selling her products all of the time. She sounded like an old lady on the phone so people used to play on that. She would keep them on the phone for as long as she could until they realised she wasn't going to buy anything. My favourite on was a chap trying to sell here a conservatory. She spoke to him on the phone for an hour and a half. They arranged to send someone out to give her a quote. The appointment time came. The company van drove into the car park, the chap got out, looked up, got back in his van and drove away. My great aunt lived in a tower block XD She had alot of time on her hands being retired lol

    And ( no offense to anyone) Jehovah's witnesses.....

    I told a bunch that my family and I were Pagan and Druids..... they no longer come to my house. In fact they cross the street and cross back over avoiding even the sidewalk infront of my house. I laugh every time.

    I know, it's wrong. But at least they don't bug me during dinnertime or during my daughter's nap time now!

    I have an app on my phone called Mr. Number that blocks out spam calls automatically. It never rings and goes straight to voicemail. It's rather impressive and I love having it. I had Charter when I was doing my internship and they would call constantly trying to sell me on additional services. I figure if it's vital, they will leave a voicemail. If not, sorry. I don't want to talk to you.

    Ya, I don't get anything like that on my cell phone. But, you have that on your house phone? How can I do that? I'd love to set that up for my parents because we get a lot of annoying calls and sometimes its when one of us are taking a nap, and bam, they call.

    OMG lmao @Earth thanks for sharing that with us!:D

    No, we haven't had a house phone in years. All calls come to us through our cell phones. The only reason I get anything from Charter is because obviously I was subscribed to them. Other than that, I don't have any problems with solicitations over the cell phone. I guess I don't receive that many, but if for whatever reason I did start to, I would never receive any of them.

    I am not sure that anything like that exists for land lines. Have they been put on the do not call list?

    Our number is listed in the do not call list. Which is weird.

    Hmm, I've never ran into this issue. I'm a Christian myself so if someone came to our door trying to sell bibles or anything else, I'll just pull mine out that was given to me in Jail, and the one that I received from a Church.

    @SpottyWolf Yeah I know what you mean, when it first happened I didn't know they were Jehovah's Witnesses at the door, and I was in the middle of a tarot reading and I answered the door with the 'devil' card in my hand (I get all the shite cards when I do mine) and they saw it and were like :O

    Lol, i have a couple of friends who have this issue. Looking young can be a blessing one day and then annoying the next day when people assume your not legal to drink, smoke etc.

    Before I was born my dad's friend saw some jehovahs witness' coming to his door, so he stripped naked and answered it XD. They were so horrified apparently.Another time, the same man invited another group of witness' into his house and converted them to becoming Anglican or something. They thought they'd convert him, when in fact when they left his house they were in awe of the Anglican religion. Hahaha :)

    If it's anyone religious I just laugh hysterically and pull out my pentacle. If it's sales people I pull my big eyed look out and they ask where mum and dad are.
