Bill: Verizon goes door to door as well. I've had to tell them No many times

The humor this week made up for the lack of accidents. It was nice that the 2 that happened didn't involve Holliston residents. I am getting tired of them getting picked on. Jean Morrissey

I have never lived anywhere that saw so many people selling stuff door to door. Its unfortunate that the US supreme court has upheld this intrusion of privacy as free speech. My advice to you - Just tell them you are not the decision maker. There is no sales rebuttal for that. The first rule in sales is a No is a decision and that means that with more information the no can be turned into a yes. Also I can't believe a huge company like Xfinity goes door to door. That is an embarrassment. Glad I have fios
