    brush it off mate and carry on, I've never had anything like that, a few growlers, and odd balls, but I just say "no problem, thank for your time". I have had a few ask who you are, say they have a window cleaner, but they take a long look at your logo and ask for a card, obviously to pass to there window cleaner. I have some some go, "my neighbours not in so don't bother knocking them, they wont be interested either", "don't you worry about that pal, and its up to them if they are not interested, I am knocking all the doors".

    Funny one I mentioned a while ago.. Seen on their letter box NO SALESMEN, flyers, charity's etc etc, so I knocked anyway, waited was just putting flyer through when door opened, she goes, can you not read!! I goes, I'm cleaning windows in the area and I'm trying to build up my business would you like yours cleaned, no she goes!! So I go no problem, then she gave me the flyer back!! So I left her gate wide open that had a sign, PLEASE CLOSE THE GATE..
