How Do You Get Rid of a Solicitor? [SURVEY]
I was doing some SERIOUS yard work yesterday. I’m sunburned all over. And right in the middle of it these guys from Eastern Europe came by selling some kind of educational program.

I don’t mind the families making extra cash selling tamales. I don’t mind religious folks or kids selling coupon books for fundraisers. But the professionals who train on how to ignore you as you say, “GET OFF MY YARD” drive me nuts. What do you do?
