Saint Paul scamming

I live on the Eastside and I get a LOT of high pressure "I have a deal for you but it is only good if you write me a check NOW" sales people. I'm always getting window salespeople, security system people, tree trimmers and so on. I wonder if it is because I live in a working class neighborhood with perhaps less educated people and more elderly people and immigrants than some neighborhoods? Often these folks approach me if I am out in the yard, which I hate. Anyway People never tried this high pressure schtick with me when I lived near Uptown in a more expensive neighborhood.

Oh I also occasionally get a truck that stops by when I am outside and asks me if I want to buy frozen meat because they want to sell the rest of their load and they were "in the neighborhood". Call me crazy but I am just not into buying meat from complete strangers in an unmarked truck. Scary.
