Now who sells magazine subscriptions at 12:45 during the day on Tuesdays

2 white college aged kids, clean cut and friendly. I did open the door (Glock 23 in hand but out of sight, was polite and told them I was not intrested.

Strange.

Were they wearing ties and riding bicycles with nametags that said "Elder" on them?

Quite strange indeed.

We had a scam going on around here with "college kids" selling magazine subscriptions. They give a story about winning a trip to Europe or something to try to incurage you about giving them money.

One knocked on the Sheriffs door and he asked for a vendors license and the kid took off.

Maybe they were looking for Suprise Butt Sehks?
Or were they casing out your house?
Did they have white button up shirts and a dark tie and were very polite?

Details man, details!!!

Tag team for your wife and you happened to be home today?

There are a number of outfits that do exactly that, for the most part they are taking advantage of the kids, push them hard and treat them badly. While I might be concerned with their situation, buying from them doesn't really help them that much, I never buy anything from door to door salespeople.

I've had a bullshit "trip to Europe" kid at my door recently. I said no thanks and was polite but he still left a Newport ground into my doorstep.
Link Posted: 12/4/2007 9:54:35 AM EDT
Did they knock in unison, as a duet?
Was there an identifiable rhythm pattern?

....Or, did they knock taking turns?

Like: Shave and a haircut........Two bits.

Please explain.

They were from the internet.

Dont worry

it's a scheme, me and a room mate in college got scammed that way. you give them money and you don't get your magazines. i gotsuckered into it, it was a hot girl, i was hoping for magazine sales lady pie.
Link Posted: 12/4/2007 9:56:35 AM EDT
Yeah, had a guy from a certain ethnic group knock on my door at 6 pm doing the same thing...magazine sales. Polite, friendly, no sale from me, but I still wondered if he was part of a group casing houses.

Wow.

Luckily they couldn't see in my home very well since I only had the door partially open and what was open was blocked by my 270lb self

Even if they did see anything it was nothing more than a 27" TV, XboX 360 and a ripped leather couch.

I'd be worried about "downer cattle" if I was buying meat from some guy selling it out of the back of his truck.

it's a scam.

The last white kid to come selling magazines at my door turned out to be a con artist. I found this out from my neighbors who got scammed, I told him to go pound sand when he asked me for money.

You should have popped the mag out of your 23 and asked them if they had a deal on these magazines.

Hey, you're welcome I'm glad it's still running for you! Shame about the goose aprons though, I bet they'd sell like hotcakes in Copenhagen.

I got burned once like that, while the kids were "selling stuff" at my front door there "associates" were stealing my wife's mountain bike off the back porch. Next time they werent so lucky
Link Posted: 12/4/2007 11:08:02 AM EDT
Some of the assholes that sell door to door think they should to charm you with their witty repartee before they try to sell you some worthless shit.

I want to be charmed just about as much as I want to be 10th in line to have a go with DK-Prof's goose.

So I open the door (but not the security door) and say "What do you want?". They they try some crap like "What a nice day it is", or "Gee, these are nice flowers you've got planted". I follow up with "Thanks for coming around just to tell me that" and shut the door. If it rings again I ignore it.
