Where to place No Soliciting sign


I want to buy a 2x8 No Soliciting sign for our home, but the issue is where I would position it. I have a walkway leading up to my front door. We have 2 small columns. We also have a sidelite window next to our front door.

My first thought was to put it next to our walkway before someone would even make it to or front door. My second idea was to just put it on our glass storm door above the handle somewhere.

As I've gotten older, I've grown extremely intolerant of solicitations of all kinds. Kirby Vacuums? Absolutely not! Telemarketer? I get the person's name & employee number, and tell them to take my phone number off their call list, and if they ever call again I'm holding him/her personally responsible. Mormon Missionaries? Thanks, but no thanks!

Nobody has any inherent right to come to my home or office (personally or by phone) and infringe on my time. Whether they call me, or come to my door, I'll kindly remind them of that. The first time.

DrHicks I turn it on them, when they call. I keep them on the phone as long as I can. Talking everything from the weather too including telling them I am lonely please don't hang up. They don't call back.

Yeah, I've got some friends who do that too. They thoroughly enjoy the entertainment. Not me. I hate being on the phone anyway, so the fewer the conversations, the better.

Something that is happening in our area (NE Ohio), they knock on door, then if there is no answer they break in.
