I was a little disturbed yesterday when I received a bang on my door. I have to back up a little bit and tell you that prior to this I had heard a commotion on the floor above us and then on our floor. For me to have heard it, you know it was loud.
I actually went to my door to see what was going on. I opened the door to find a group of very young girls sans any adult with them knocking on every apartment door. As soon as I opened my door three little girls were vying to shove a piece of paper at me. It turns out they were trying to sell stuff from school.
What disturbed me about the whole thing was not the fact they were trying to sell stuff but that there was no adult with them...not one! They were going to strangers doors. It could have been some freak-a-zoid answer the door and drug them into anyone of the apartments. This was bad enough!
What made it even worse is not one of the girls even mentioned what school they were from or what they were trying to do. They simply were fussing with each other to grab my attention or make the sale.
I can tell you that I politely declined but was disturbed by the scene none-the-less.
What would you have done?
