    I would say you should share with Canio6 as I think he is truly lacking in proper caffination, however you're in DE and he's in AZ. We'd have to find a way to teleport said coffee to him and I don't think that technology is available yet.

    loser players who then go on to say they did nothing wrong.....good morals jerkoff....good luck in the future with that.....seriously how do some people even sleep at night or look in the mirror.
    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

    You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.

Many people are outright happy when they open their door, because they need my services.
    I DO know who you are. You are a salesman trying to pitch me to buy whatever you're selling, and I don't want to talk to you.

    I have access to the internet and a car. I am perfectly capable of finding and obtaining whatever I need or want. I don't need you to tell me what I need or want.

    My sign says in no uncertain terms: "NO soliciting, that means NO salesmen and we're not hiring. If we want product or service, we'll call you."

    If you don't have the mental capability to know what that means, then you should not be out in public unsupervised. Or you're just an inconsiderate jack@$$.

And it is never the kids! They just open the door, then get their parents. Noooo, it is the FULLY GROWN ADULTS, including six foot tall MEN who seem scared shitless. Who do they think they are, some important person that might be kidnapped and held for ransom? And how many crazed murderers waltz into a residential neighborhood, guns-a-blazing, in the middle of the freaking day, with a stack of several hundred fliers bearing their name and telephone number on them!?
    I am sick and tired of people assuming that I am required to answer my door, let them in my house, and take up my valuable time listening to their sales pitch.

    And it's never kids! Noooo, it's the FULLY GROWN ADULTS, including six foot tall MEN who don't have the mental capability to understand what "I'm not interested" means. Who do they think they are, some important person that I am obligated to?

    I don't live in a cave. I know carpet cleaning businesses exist. If I want my carpet cleaned, I'll find one.

    GotD completely unrelated to door-to-door salespeople and/or coffee: Last night I had some cherries, and this morning my digestive tract told me in no uncertain terms that I am not to ingest that much fructose ever again. I love cherries, but the twenty minutes of horrible stabbing pain was not worth it. I don't even want to know what it would do if I ate processed sugar.

    My SO is going through a phase of thinking we are in the military.
    In boot camp, I expected to have people saying "Jump" and responding with "Yessir, how high, sir?"
    But that was many years ago, and I see no gold on his collar.
    I hope this phase passes soon. It's getting old.
