Despite this extensive (though perhaps not exhaustive) definition of soliciting, we occasionally still get people who seem to believe that somehow our sign does not apply to them. In those cases, there is but one logical response: "I'm very sorry, but I make it a point never to do business with the illiterate. Goodbye." *click*PLEASE
*Recently some people have been confused by our sign, so here's the fine print: "No Soliciting" means we do not purchase goods or services from door-to-door sales people; we have chosen our religious, charitable, and political party affiliations; and we have no desire to subscribe to anything or take a survey of any kind. If you are unsure whether your product, message or service is considered soliciting, the answer is "Yes it is, so please go away."
Of course, I still need to cover the sign on Halloween. Trick-or-treaters, come and get it!
