Question: Often, we have sales people walk in through our front door, and I am wondering what the best approach is to politely — and quickly — get rid of them. Our office does not accept solicitors, but they all ignore the notice. And like the telephone solicitors do, they want to quickly get me or the receptionist into a conversation, whether they are selling services or a product.
It is annoying and I don't wish to appear rude, but I really want to stop them in their tracks before they even get to the hand-shaking part. -- Cindy, California
