unamused

Save the chillldruuun, two for one special

I hate campaigns and advertising efforts that send children door-to-door. There's one that's been very active in my neighborhood for a couple weeks now. Now, I have a policy of never buying anything as a result of door-to-door soliciting or telephone soliciting. So I do my best to show them what the adult world has in store for them once they're no longer cute enthusiastic babies, by saying "I'm not interested" and closing the door whether or not they continue with "But it's for my future," or whatever. But it's not a role I have any fun playing, and it usually puts me in a crabby mood for a while afterward.
