Do you have a “no soliciting” sign on your door, yet people keep knocking? That’s because many people think that solicit means to sell you something. Well, that is not the case. Solicit actually means:
So in reality, UNLESS SOMEONE ASKED YOU to their house, you are in fact soliciting them. Whether you are asking for their opinion, their time, or their money – you are soliciting. So if you don’t want people getting pissed at you for knocking on doors – please observe no soliciting signs.
