It was all a misunderstanding....

So i've been out canvassing for the democratic party since October 8th

On October 13th I was assigned the 33rd,34th,35th,36th streets. On 35th street I met this woman. Her name was Stefanie. She seemed nice but it turns out she was a Republican. I had to knock on the back door to talk to her.



On November 1st I was assigned the University neighborhood. I realized I was close to where Stefanie lived. I thought i'd stop by and say Hi. I was hoping she might accept a facebook friend request too.

Around 8:00 pm I dropped by her house. Her front door was locked but the lights were on. I knocked a few times then tried the back door like last time. When she answered the door she was annoyed "Please don't knock on my door" and told me she still wouldn't vote for the democratic party. I was stunned and couldn't say anything but "Never mind"

I left but wrote a short apology saying "I'm sorry for disturbing you but I was in the neighborhood and just wanted to say hi. I was hoping we could be friends on facebook"



12:15 am I receive a phone call from an officer. He said that Stefanie was a little shaken up by the encounter. The officer said she got my apology and accepted it.

I'm not allowed to contact her by phone or computer now

Sorry, but I would have been scared too, especially if I was a chick and some person kept coming around to see me after I told them I was interested.

Probably best not to dwell about her on a message board, either!

I wouldn't recommend showing up at her back door again, either.

Re: It was all a misunderstanding....

I'd definitely forget you ever met her, while simultaneously making an effort not to run into her again.

Re: It was all a misunderstanding....

It would be different if you saw her on the street and decided to say Hi...but going by her home and knocking on her door...not the best idea.

I would just forget you met this person.

I think it's more the American fear of some random guy who came to their door returning later, after business hours, and knocking because "the lights were on."

There was a guy from one of my classes in college who would show up outside my dorm room window randomly. It started to creep me out pretty quickly.

Re: It was all a misunderstanding....

Ok, so knocking on someone's door to say hi after you've already talked is a no-go? Am I missing something here? Because I think that's rather normal.

After one encounter? And after hours? Yes it is a no-go.
