Look at the knockers on that place!
Blog Guy, my daughter just got a degree in creative writing and film studies. Any suggestions for a job?
Sure. Increasingly, people in nice big houses are hiring human door knockers to hang on their front doors, as kind of a status thing. You get to work with people and be outdoors.
Isn’t it just for guys?
No, there are some young women in the profession. They call themselves “doorbelles.”
Who do the knockers take orders from?
That makes sense. How does the job work?
Folks come up to the door and say, “Knock knock.” Then the human door knocker says, “Who’s there?”
And then what?
What do you think? Five percent of the time the person gives their name. The rest of the time it’s an idiotically juvenile punch line, and they run away.
Hmmmmm. Well, she does need a job, and I guess it’s a place to start…
Sure. It’s a foot in the door….
