What’s your idea of the Ultimate No Solicitation Sign?

In our lodge, we have a big, loud doorbell because a long time ago, my brother came to visit and arrived after we were all asleep. Let me tell you, we sleep deeply and well. So, my poor brother knocked and knocked to no avail. He finally got a hotel room and popped by for breakfast!

We were mortified. So, when we moved into this house, we installed a bugger of a doorbell.

Now, I regret it to some extent because it send the cats flying in all directions every time a solicitor, or the UPS guy, or someone trying to save my soul comes along. So, after the third cats-flying-in-all-directions incident today, I decided to put up this sign:


No solicitation sign

Do you think this will work?

Now, I’m thinking I should add ‘unless you’re a cute kid selling me cookies or popcorn, don’t ring this doorbell …’ because I always order from the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.

Other than that, what else might I want to put on my hand-made no solicitation sign?
