Third Shift - Day Solicitors

So...I work Third Shift from 6:00PM until 5:30AM on a varying and rotating schedule...Frequently my daytime sleep routine is interrupted by inconsiderate religious and sales solicitors... Bottom line, I don't want their crappy products and if I did - I would seek and purchase them on my own. Regarding religion, I have my own thing going on and simply do not wish to be bothered... What irritates me the most about this whole deal is I have a "No SOLICITING" sign on my doorway as well as a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the handle much like a hotel would have... What the F do I have to do in order to get these asspipes to realize that they are gonna have a bad time if they knock on my door What do you guys with similar schedules or for other reasons do about unwanted door to door visitors and interruptions?!

Have a sign that says Soliciters will be shot on sight.
Survivors will be hung by the chimney with care.

Does your city have a city ordinance against it? If so, call the police and have them deal with it.

I sleep with a kinda loud fan (not ceiling fan) on. I don't know if people come by or not. Haha. I also live kinda in the country. So that helps also.

2 signs. One warning that you have an evil guard dog and one saying "Home Protection provided by Sig Sauer".

A lot of people suggest that but does one really have to resort to threatening violence in order to have some privacy. That's just sad ... Oh well today's world I guess. I'll see if these signs I put up get the point across lol, if they don't ill put up a sign that says ill shank you if you knock!

I bought a house with the master bedroom in the very back. They can knock all they want. My ups/FedEx guys all know I'm a day sleeper and always drop my packages in my back patio except when I need to sign. Then They knock on my window and I'm happy to sign. Gotta keep those parts coming.

Plain and simple answer the door butt *** naked. It worked for me when I had this problem they immediately leave or if they're really persistent they feel extremely awkward the whole time.

The first time this happened was completely accidental my puppy got excited and I had just got out of the shower thinking it was my friend who I invited over to play so video games with as we both had the day off so I answered the door in my towel. The puppy thought it would be a great idea to play tug of war with the bottom of the towel and well needless to say it was some Jehovah's Witnesses and they immediately left red faced and I just couldn't stop laughing. But Primer I thought it you said it lmfao

What about a nice little 4 ft white picket fence around your house with a gate that is locked? Stop them before they get to the front door.
