      Door Knockers

      So..there I am contemplating my naveL, lfiguring out some resin molding problem when the doorbell rings...

      Smart suited guy with a clipboard...before he got started I pointed to the door which has a plastic notice...NO salesman..cold callers etc...

      "I am not a salesman" he said.."I am the owner".

      I had to ask him if owners read things differently from salesmen. 

      Blank stare and off he went......

      Some people eh?

        I love the English people...your trains are so cool (and always so well varnished!), and you have such a sharp, reserved sense of humor.

       

        In parts of America, this is the kind of thing that could have started the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral !

      Maybe the owners cannot read?

      He can read, he just thinks he is special, like so many people in the world these days.

       

      Special, read "the rules don't apply to me".

      I forgot to say in my original post that he was the owner of the company he was selling for.......

      it also appears that 4 out of 5 callers selling things and dropping off junk mail cannot read either.....and are appear quite amazed when I point to the notice.......

      But don't get me started on the number of people like the mail man not using the pathway but cossing  the 1 metre wide a flower border,,the front patio and brushing past the rose standards as a short cut to the front door......!!

      I thought you were saying he was the owner of your house and you refused to talk to him.  Good joke, either way.

      Saw a sign like this at a neighbor's home.

      Sorry, I couldn't help myself. When someone mentions (door) knockers, this scene just comes to mind.
