I hated it as a child and teenager....never did it after 16 years old.
My problem was the territory was always my fellow class mates. Imagine showing up at the door of the most popular kids in school, with your mom, dressed like a Mormon on a Saturday morning. Bible in hand, book bag etc., waking them up, and then having to return to school on a Monday morning trying to fit in.
No dice, I had to try extra hard to be wild to counter act the weekend JW activity.
Life was a nightmare, a double sided bullshixt existence.
Today, I hate anyone coming to my door. I have two very prominent signs about a large guard dog. If anyone dares ring my bell, the Dog is released to confront them. He doesn't bark, or bite.....he just stands between the person and the door. If you have the nerve to try and sell me something, you have to deal with my dog first.
Door to Door sales is dead at this point in time.
