Like-a-Card?

business cards when you offer when you want to be left alone

A range of business cards guaranteed to deter persistent salespersons. On meeting such an individual, you quickly don a latex glove, before reaching into your wallet to extend your Like-a-Card, which you carefully drop, using a pair of tweezers into a sealable plastic envelop.

Cards would have fictitious company names and operative descriptions that fall into two broad camps: The scary - e.g. Ebola Leakage Management Inc. (Handling Control), or Toxic Animal Rendering (Equipment Cleaner), and the surrealist - e.g. Exhumations Strippa Theme (Dancer) or Hairy Elbow Wrangler. If this does not get rid of them, then they actually deserve your attention.

       Spurious cards with fictional information have long been marketed as novelty items, or to dissuade would-be suitors in singles bars.   

       I totally fail to see why they would deter salespeople.
