I’ve used it twice in two days now and it’s fun.
We have the benefit if being able to see any door-to-door people coming up the path, which gives you the seconds advantage you need. As soon as I open the door, and before they have a chance to start their “I’m not trying to sell you anything” spiel I ask “Who are you with?”.
Both have appeared a little stunned, they don’t expect a question before they can start and they abandon their script to blurt out the name of whoever is paying them a pittance.
A simple “no thanks” and walk away leaves them floundering on the doorstep before the long march to the next house.

I am unable to say No to door salesmen. That’s why we have a yak family in the spare bedroom.
Churchies are fun to tease that way too. “Great, now I’m going to have to sacrifice my sister’s unborn child. I hope you’re happy!”
And looks like someone’s got delusions of grandeur.
And a bounder.

I like it.
When I get back to civilisation I’ll try it.
A least you didn’t let them do their spiel then say no thanks….piss off.
You sir, are a cad.
