Easy and Peaceful Ways to Defend Yourself Against Solicitors
Another look at solicitors
Sometimes, even the most-patient person can be pushed too far. Life has those moments that if they happen in a continuous sequence, can cause a rational person to lose their temper, go from calm to a raging manic and even worse, shout vulgar threats to the origin of the pressure.
Every one of you who are reading this story has at sometime, had to use firm actions to regain your freedom and peace of mind. Am I right or wrong?
I would be safe in saying that the vast-majority of us have been visited by those unwanted solicitors who are selling some “new” and “money-saving,” apparatus that will eliminate housework altogether or a series of religious-based books written by some mortal man in 1779 who was met by an angel in the Rocky Mountains and given the enlightened-text in these books that go for only $54.00 per month for 36 months.
SECRET SALES STRATEGIES REVEALED: Which sounds longer, 36 months or 3 years? Of course the 36 months to our reasoning sounds less than 3 years.
And the $54.00 a month, which the salesman quickly says (to head-off you having time to think), is a “severe discount,” and the salesman then gets a fake disappointed look on his face and adds, “Friend, I am taking a huge loss on these books at this price.”
Now you are foaming at the mouth—groping for the pen in his shirt pocket to sign the sales agreement, shaking “Howard” the salesman’s hand and inviting him to have dinner with you and the wife.
Did you hear that, “Cha-Ching,” the familiar sound of a cash register?
Well, I am on your side. I am here to help you keep your freedom and peace of mind by simply offering you these . . .
10 Safe and Peaceful Ways to Defend Yourself Against Solicitors
10.) ACT SCARED – as if the salesman is an escaped gorilla from a traveling circus. Only peep through the door, then look terrified and slam the door. So long to the annoying solicitor.
9.) CROSS YOUR ARMS – and do not say one word. Keep that angry frown on your face. Do not answer his aggravating questions. Soon, after you crack your knuckles, he will leave in a cloud of dust.
8.) OPEN YOUR DOOR – wearing your wife’s bra. That should be enough to send the solicitor packing.
7.) YELL – “Take cover,” as you open the door, and run like a wild man across your lawn and deep into your neighborhood. Tell your wife and kids to not come out of the bedrooms until the solicitor leaves.
6.) LET THE SOLICITOR – finish his sales pitch, then grin and reply, “Sorry, mister. I do not even live here and listen to me. You don’t know me. You didn’t see anything.”
5.) MEET THE SOLICITOR – at the door wearing a gorilla suit. Beat your chest, act angry, and start walking toward him. But try hard not to laugh as he squeals his tires as he storms out of your drive-way.
4.) BEFORE ANY SOLICITOR – knocks on your door, learn a few Portuguese words. No matter what the solicitor says, you reply something in Portuguese while shrugging your shoulders. The solicitor will not stay when he sees he cannot sell you anything. And even if he is of Portuguese origin, keep on confusing him with your Portuguese replies and shoulder-shrugs.
3.) HOLD YOUR PET BASSET HOUND – in your arms and when the solicitor asks you if you are interested in his product, act like you are whispering to your pet Basset Hound and shake your head and say, “Sorry. ‘Mr. Busby,’ advises me not to buy those things.”
2.) PUT UP A NEON – sign on the front lawn that flashes, “No Solicitors At Anytime”
1.)ASK THE PUSHY SOLICITOR – “You want me to call the F.B.I.?” And stand there. Do not say another word. He might call you a few ugly names as he leaves, but he is leaving.
