I've just been interrupted in the middle of my work by yet another one of these people that turn up on your doorstep either selling stuff or getting home owners to fill in some sort of stupid survey questionnaire. I wouldn't mind, but I don't even own this house and yet I still have to put up with all of the door to door salesmen and doorstep surveys!
I've just had another one and this time it was a young lady who wanted me fill in some sort of transport survey. The fact that the come to pester you in the first case is bad enough, but she actually wanted to do this questionnaire there and then! Anyway, I insisted that I was in the middle of work and that I didn't have time to spare. She just wouldn't take no for an answer though and wouldn't leave until I took one of her forms and promised to fill it in; a promise I hasten to add that I will not keep. I expect I'll be hiding behind the sofa on Friday when she comes back to pick it up.
Cold callers - they wont take no for an answer...
It's so annoying and it seems to be happening quite frequently these days. We had a couple of suits round a few days ago trying to sell us new doors and windows. Then there were the Mormons a few weeks ago who called round to help us save our souls. It's all just so irritating, especially when they wont take no for an answer and wont let you get a word in.
By the way, as I write this gripe I have just answered the door yet again so that's twice in ten minutes. It was another young lady with a transport survey questionnaire. Clearly they're not all singing from the same hymn sheet today!
