    I went out over the weekend canvassing all houses in a local village.
    Things were going good got a few houses and couple of bungalows untill I got to this one street ! Every door I knocked on I got shouted at or door slammed in my face! I can handle most things but after about twenty house of abuse I got to the 21st and was ready to lamp someone, luckily when I knocked a kind little old lady opened the door and ended up inviting me in for a cuppa beacuse she said I looked stressed. Got to love older people that show that not everyone in the area are w***ers

    Never had the guts to canvass a street myself, so good on you for trying. Just treat it as experience mate, the good customers are out there, it just takes time to find them.

    No people like that don't put me off. I just get angry then laugh about it and I have no idea what was up with them. I used to get less jip when I used to collect scrap and looked scruffy and go knocking on doors lol. I dress smart ish and go knocking and people treat me like I just kicked their dog and want paying for it lol
