I wouldn't have such a problem with canvassers if you'd just learn to read body language. Your net-casting really only manages to piss off the people who don't really want to talk to you, causing a kind of knock-on effect. When I'm walking down the street on my phone, or earbuds in, I don't want to talk to you. When I'm sitting outside, eating my lunch and reading, I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU. And if you think I'm going to hand over my credit card information to some idiot in a pink T-shirt then you're very wrong. Try to learn to read people better, because what you're doing is not only invasive, it's rude and disrespectful. And yes, actually, I am registered to vote.—Anonymous
