Cuz Memzy's Wish is Always My Command

Unfortunately it hasn't kept ALL the solicitors away. I think I'm going to have my SIL redo it in white. The black blends in too much.

Vegas' huge sign would for sure have more of an impact. Would that be in place of a wreath? Would that clank against the door every time you opened and closed it? She needs to think these things through before she starts going door-to-door.

What is Vegas' huge sign?

Jenny said...

I've always loved that sign by your door. It makes me smile.

Sorry Flemmy.... I put a hyperlink to her website. It's Srod's cousin and I highly recommend you read her. I've cried from the laughter several times since I was introduced.

I know Jenny.. it's the perfect mix of "Stay away-- but I'm not completely heartless."

Jenny said...

Yeah, when I went to visit Ronna's blog I found it was private... So, I found her email address in the weekly RS email and emailed her to ask to be invited. She emailed back and voila...Rockin' Ronna.

I'd recommend nailing the sign above the doorbell, rather than hang it on the door. That picture on my blog is just one I stole from the internet. My sign right now is actually a piece of paper taped to my doorbell. ::blushing:: But I'm going to Home Depot today for supplies. I'm gonna stray from the standard No Soliciting sign--currently brainstorming it all.

"Peddle Your Goods and Services Elsewhere, Por Favor"

Hmm, I'll let you know...

Memzy said...

Or how about "Take a hike you leech of a human."

^^too harsh?

And yes, my wish is your command.

I suggest "Have happy family, generator and food storage-- no need for anything else. Get off my porch."

You are soooo funny - all of you ! Tiff ( can I call you Tiff ? It's just - I call my sister that and somehow I feel like I know you and . . . you're just so funny ) anyway - do you mind if I add you to my list - I need a daily giggle ? Am I s'posed to ask this question ? I don't want to be presumptuous or sumpn !

I am going to make some: would you like one? The ones I make say "Solicitors will be shot. Survivors will be shot again." You can leave up that "Girl scouts. . ." part.

Tiffers,
Why didn't I think of that? I HATE people who try to sell me something at my door or over the phone. To illustrate: last week a very nice Mormon boy knocked on our door explaining someone in our ward had suggested we might like to buy the animated Book of Mormon videos for our grandchildren. I made every effort to be kind/polite/nice but said no thanks. He kept talking--again, no thanks. More talking--"We make it a policy to never buy from the front porch, the sidewalk or the grass. Family policy. More talking. Me smiling--waving and closing the door. It really torked me royally. (This phrase is straight from 1968) and fits perfectly!!

I totally agree with your sign!! Who doesn't buy girl scout cookies? My husband always buys them from work. I swear he comes home with 15 to 20 boxes a year. (Food storage!)

15-20 boxes of gs cookies at our house does not qualify as food storage unless we hide them where everyone (including the hider) forgets where they are. If they are in the freezer we just eat them straight out of the cold- thin mints or those coconut covered ones that change names every year? Frozen? YUM.
