YES YOU ARE A SOLICITOR. YOU ARE TOO. STOP ARGUING AND GO AWAY.

Wow, the "NO SOLICITORS" sign totally doesn't work. Nobody will admit to being a solicitor. Everybody seems to think it means "vacuum cleaner salesman". Like the guy who rang our doorbell just now offering to trim tree branches. I pointed at the sign. He ignored it and kept trying to deliver his spiel. I pointed again. He said he's just trimming trees, not selling vacuum cleaners, and demanded a yes or no. I said no. As he left, he said, "Fine. You don't need to give me some smartass answer." HEY ASSHOLE, YOU INTERRUPTED MY LIFE. GO FALL OFF A ROOF AND BREAK YOUR STUPID NECK!

So I found myself wondering, how do you say "no solicitors" in people-who-don't-know-what-solicitor-means-speak?

Maybe I should just disconnect the doorbell. But then what would the pizza guy ring?

Maybe a sign saying "DELIVERIES ONLY"? Do they make those? Would it do any good? It wouldn't, would it.
