The other weekend morning, like many weekend mornings, the doorbell rang. And I didn't answer it. But later when I went outside I found a mangled loaf of bread. Based on the label, it was clearly meant to lure me to a church. I can't understand why they would leave such a smashed up loaf. I think I need to feed it to ducks.
So, I made what I had been needing for a long time. That is a sign to try and limit the morning doorbell ringing. It's really been a problem. Multiple religions have been represented, as well as questionable salespeople and other uninvited strangers. I just hate the doorbell waking me up. It's one of the worst ways to wake up.
Anyway, I searched on the internet to buy a "no solicitors" sign but all I could find was just that simple statement (which just doesn't cover my needs) or else you can get a sort of religious stick figures prohibited sign, but that also doesn't suffice and also I think it's slightly rude. So, we'll see. I have a second style in mind, but I'm not sure what else I'll be doing with this. Maybe I'll mass produce the sign and finally all the people who need such a sign will find what they've been looking for.
