    Hi i thought i would post this manly to keep and eye out for elderly neighbors.
    I think there is some travelers in the area because yesterday a guy knocked on our door wanting to no if we needed any garden work doing and today a guy with a deep Irish accent knocked on our door asking if we wanted any cheap fresh fish.
    I have two signs on my door telling people not to knock if there selling anything i am not interested, i have nothing against travelers but i don t want them knocking on my door and it does concern me if there knocking on vulnerable peoples doors.

    Only warning to give is that they often use some pretty nasty acid to clean driveways, get it by the barrels and remove the warning labels before ruining any plant and the feet of any pet that the stuff may touch.

    Apparently it’s rather prevalent around Stafford. Really burns the paws of cats and dogs. Our neighbour had some folk start cleaning his drive before he told them where to shove it when he saw what it was they were using.

    Realistically though, with the exception of some small-time things (local milkman had people go round trying to drum up business) no trade will go door to door looking for custom. This isn’t exclusive to travellers and you should always ask yourself “why do they need to wander around in the cold to get any business?”

    They've even had the audacity to steal an 'O' and some 'L's, too. Disgusting.

    Woo woooo wooo woooo. Stop in the name of the PC police! Shut it down. This topic is racist and bigoted. Anybody taking part in this discussion is guilty of a hate crime and will be publicly exposed and have their lives ruined, their children taken into care and their family will be made to publicly denounce them or face the same treatment after the court of public opinion has their way! Wait..... it says here in the liberal handbook........ gypsies are white and therefore cannot be victims of stereotyping, racism or bigotry. Erm ok...as you were!

    Anybody with an Irish-sounding surname should be sent back there.
