Are your parents home?
I made a new printable for myself tonight that I thought I would share with all my lovely readers as well… But first, let me tell you a story.
I was hanging out with Avery and Scott and there comes a knock at the door, which always makes me jump out of my skin because I generally don’t hear the knock as much as the dogs and their barking. But when I walk over, I don’t just open the door, I don’t have a security screen door so I open the kitchen window if I don’t know the person. People are aways a little thrown off but it is either that or they get eaten by a dog.
I am doing a public service really.
Ok, maybe that is a little dramatic but anyways…
On this day, it happened to be the ever bothersome (at least to me) door to door meat salesman.
Yeah, door to door meat salesman… Now, I have talked to many friends in other areas who have this service and it is a honest butcher’s truck or fresh off the dock seafood truck, but I have also talked to many friends who’s meat-man is like the one that comes around my neighborhood.
It is a small converted pickup truck with various types of meat- my vegetarianism aside, why would I buy overpriced meat out of your pickup truck? Who knows when, how old, from what, where…. I could go on but just the though grosses me out.
Besides the fact that they NEVER believe me when I say “we are vegetarians” , they always come back with “we have fish and chicken”…. really?
But this guy was especially amusing, he knocks, I open the window and the first thing he says is,
wait for it,
“Is you mom or dad home”
My response? “No, and we are vegetarians.” and well, I already explained the way the rest of that conversation went…
In comes me finally sitting down and creating a “no soliciting” sign.
If you would like to avoid random “compliments” or just the chance that the dogs might wake up sleeping kids during nap time, feel free to print this out yourself!
Just remember, I made this as a free printable to share with you so please, only for personal use.
