Have you ever bought anything from a door to door salesman?

Or even changed phone companies, or bought religious items?

Or perhaps given a donation to someone who has knocked on your door?

I probably have at many times.

I am a softie for donations when they knock on my door and sometimes I doubt their authenticity but give a small amount anyway. It must be a thankless job knocking on doors and getting them slammed in your face.

I HATE when religious organisations knock on my door -I think that is a real invasion of privacy as religion is a very personal thing and how dare they try and convert me.

I am afraid I am quite rude now to this type of person.

I also will not change phone companies or anything like that -i will sometimes ask for a pamphlet but they are very hesitant to give you anything if you do not commit.

LOL, I get annoyed when the 'Bible Bashers' (as they are unfortunately known) come knocking as well. But Finy, imagine being so passionate about a cause close to your heart, you just want to share it with others. Surely that must be an admirable thing. I do concede that some of them can be forceful.

We have a family friend who invites them in, pull out his Bible and tries to convert them! LOL!

The only thing I ever did was sign up to a new internet and phone provider when a salesperson knocked on my door. I'm really glad I did because it was a fantastic service provider!

I send the rest packing though.
I generally give to the red cross and salvation army when they come each year, but that's it. I might ask someone to leave a pamphlet if I'm feeling that way inclined.
I am happy to donate to worthwhile causes,but I have not BOUGHT from a door to door seller.And I am not patient at all with religious canvassers at all.I like my privacy too much!
NO

Yes.
I always give to the Salvation Army Red Shield, when they come a knocking.
I have made donations to kids who have come knocking doing fundraising but that's about it. I have never bought anything
by AJ
No. I have, however, bought from homewards catalogues dropped at my doorstep ocassionally.
I really dislike door to door sellers but do give to the Salvos' Red Shield Appeal and the Red Cross when they call.
I haven't ever! I find it intrusive and rush them away.
Chocolates. That is all. Have also given to charities.
by Vee
No. No & No!
Used to give to Charities, but stopped that after all the abuse got publicised.

I do not answer the door, if I do not know the person who is there.
so the answer is no.
I will give to the Salvos or the Red Cross, as they are worthwhile charities. Coincidentally, I was a volunteer doorknocker for the Red Cross myself for many many years. People were always kind and generous, as they would have gotten to know me after many years. I have never brought anything from a doorknocker, just as I never buy anything from telemarketers over the phone.
