    Out leafleting for a bit this afternoon, had two people open the door and throw my flyer out. Shouting stop putting shite through my door. Second one I was only half way off her drive. Door opens so I turned around. I don't won't your crappy junk mail she said as she through it at me. I told her it's not junk it's targeted advertising. Don't think she was impressed by the way she slammed the door shut. never had anyone react like that before an two in one day. Has this happened to any one else??

    Jesus that's awful. Target a different area. I'm doing great with flyers, about a dozen good jobs from 500! All rural though. Only another 9500 to go......

    If it's like some of the 'nice' areas around here they have probably been targeted by every window cleaner in the county since the sun has come out...

    Not had that but once I was about to post one in a letterbox when a woman was walking towards the door at the same time. There was 2 doors next to each other. Do t post that at number 26 she shouts. Ok i said and posted one in the other door, only it wasn't the other door it was number 26 oops sorry I said laughing. She looked at me and said I just said don't. ..yes sorry I meant to put it in the other door you don't need a window cleaner do you?. No I don't she said in the most snotty nose in the air way possible. Think I called her s miserable cow or sumthin. Can't stand rude people

    Only had one guy who gave me some hassle, I remember clocking him as I turned up in the street, watching me posting the houses before his, it looked like it was his elderly grans house and he was looking after her (prob waiting to cop for the house) as soon as I walked up the drive he came out all big & hard looking saying whats this then PAL, I just smiled and said he you go mate and handed it to him and walked off down the drive, he came walking after me saying here take it back I don't need **** like this here. Took it off him and bit my tounge and just carried on. Got 2 good regulars a few doors down from him out of it so not a wasted trip.
