It usually takes me an hour or so to shake the heebie jeebies of door hanging but to be honest nobody ever complained. In my neighborhood last summer there was a guy walking around on the nicest Saturday in the spring when everybody was outside, passing out flyers on replacement windows, he wasn't with a chain outfit, just an independent. When he stopped at my yard I asked him if he was getting any flack for approaching people in their yards. He said people are nicer to him on a nice saturday than during the week and he ge ts better responses. His outlook was different from mine, I see it as a nessacary evil, he actually enjoyed it.
I guess your attitude is everything.
