A profitable sideline

Mansfield Woodhouse is out on his rounds again this morning.

He's noticed that a lot of people have signs on their doors saying that they don't want door-to-door salespeople, and threatening them with the Police.

Mansfield goes round, knocks on the door, and points out that it's not a criminal offence to knock on people's doors. Then he suggests that, since he's a lawyer, if they householder hires him he will take out an injunction against himself to stay away.

He's made quite a few bob already. Some money by confusing people into actually paying for his services, and the rest by suing the ones that deck him for being such a nuisance.
