Honest to gawd, I just had the following exchange, word for word, with a product of our school system – which once again illustrates why we homeschool:
[Unknown woman walks up to our front door, flyer in hand, and rings doorbell – unaware that I’ve seen her through our front window]
Me (through closed door): Yes, who is it?
Woman (in tone of voice as if we are long-time friends): It’s Evelyn!
Me: Evelyn who?
Woman (in tone of voice as if I really ought to recognize her): Evelyn Martinez!
Me: What can I do for you, Evelyn Martinez?
Woman (now switching tone as clearly the fake friend thing isn’t working, as I haven’t opened the door): Are you the lady of the house?
Me: We don’t accept solicitors here.
Woman: I’m not soliciting, I’m advertising.
