Door-To-Door Verizon Salesman Can't Keep His Pants Shut While On The Job

We’re not big fans of door-to-door marketing, and today we bring you another example of why we feel this way. According to the News-Journal, an employee of a marketing firm contracted by Verizon has been arrested and charged with two counts of “lewdness, resisting arrest and criminal trespassing,” after a man in a Verizon t-shirt was spotted “masturbating while watching a woman work in her garden.”

From the News-Journal:

On Monday, residents in the North Graylyn Crest neighborhood told police they saw a man hiding behind a vehicle who appeared to be masturbating while watching a woman work in her garden, said New Castle County police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro.

The man was described as wearing a Verizon T-shirt.

Police searched the area but couldn’t find the man.

Police spoke to the woman the man had been watching, and she said she didn’t know the man was watching her, but that a man had been to her house earlier and had attempted to sell her Verizon services.

Police spoke to Verizon officials, who said the company outsources solicitation campaigns to marketing companies, and that several representatives of such a company had been sent to the area.

On Tuesday, police received a report of a suspicious man who was walking along Grubb Road soliciting for Verizon, Navarro said.

When an officer confronted the man near a convenience store on Foulk Road, the man ran off through the backyard of a nearby home, Navarro said.

The door-to-door salesman is being held at a correctional institution in lieu of $20,500 bail.

    I wonder if it was the hoe? Here in Texas she would have just shot him and called 9-1-1 to come pick up the carcass.

    Dude, just go home and watch porn.

    Oh wait, if you’re an employee, that probably means you have Verizon and your internet doesn’t work.

    This is why I don’t answer the door for people I don’t know.

    Is it wrong that I look at his pic and think “Oh, he’s cute.”? Also, I wonder if he’s any relation to this fine, upstanding citizen. [consumerist.com]

    @MayorBee is Haulin’ Ass…Gettin’ Paid: I was thinking the same thing! Although he definitely loses points for being a mega-creeper

  8. @B: winner!

    @MayorBee is Haulin’ Ass…Gettin’ Paid: yeah, probably.

    Can we get a pic of the woman in the garden? Is that asking too much?

    “yeah, we do offer high speed services. Think 2 minutes or so.”

  16. SkokieGuy says:

    @MyPetFly: WIN!

  17. @snoop-blog: yeah, that was my first thought too.

  18. MyPetFly says:

    @SkokieGuy: Thank you SkokieGuy! That’s the nicest thing anyone has said to me in the last five minutes… sniff sniff… : )

  19. kyle4 says:

    What the hell is wrong with these people. This guy works for Verizon, I’m sure he could do this in his own home with some great links from Fleshbot or something.

  20. snoop-blog says:

    He couldn’t wait until he got back to his car???

  21. MissPeacock says:

    He kind of looks like Elijah Wood…if Elijah Wood gained about 50 pounds.

    @snoop-blog:

    Where in the bible does it say that a man can’t fire off some knuckle-children in the privacy of his own neighbor’s garden while his neighbor’s gardening because I don’t have a DVD player? Well, I don’t know where it says it because the Bible was way too long to read!

  23. MayorBee says:

    @MissPeacock: Wow, that just put an image of him and fat Sean Astin getting it on. Well, fatter Sean Astin, I mean.

  24. MyPetFly says:

    @MissPeacock:

    Maybe he’s Elijah Morning Wood. That would explain a lot.

    @Japheaux: I pray you’re being sarcastic. That’s neither funny nor clever.

    I fear the South for precisely that attitude.

    In my country that is one of the biggest compliment you can give a woman. What is wrong with society when people can’t even take a compliment.

  33. silver-spork says:

    I’m not surprised. I also live in this county and the door-to-door salesmen are really sketchy. They would come early on Sunday mornings even after I asked them not to come back.

    One night, I was repotting some plants in my garage and they came into the garage to try to sell me on their FIOS. I yelled at them, told them not to come back, and threatened to call the police. Then they claimed that they could not take my address of their sales list without my phone number and a survey on my phone/internet usage. Once I repeated my threats to call the police, they left and have not been back.

    Although I’m a Comcast subscriber and fully admit that they suck, I will never switch to Verizon.

  34. SkokieGuy says:

    Luckily he was simply hiding behind his truck.

    If he had tried this in an airport, surely TSA would have nabbed him, as over 3oz of fluid makes you a terrorist threat.

  35. ajmccoll says:

    You can be arrested for that….?

  36. louveciennes says:

    “Cute”? No way, he’s got a severe case of Crazy Eyes.

  37. MayorBee says:

    @louveciennes: You know what they say…”Crazy in the head, crazy in the bed.” And, as an added bonus, I might get hooked up with free cable. On the other hand, I might get my cable yanked out if I don’t perform well. Damn, that’s a tough call. Oh well, you roll the dice and you take your chances.

    It’s actually not his fault, he tried to sell her Verizon services and she told him to “beat it”. Poor guy was set-up.

    I used to work for their major contractor for door to door 20/20 powervision ([2020companies.com]), there is a BS background check and the managers walk you through passing the drug test. this company is staffed by thug wannabies all the way up to the top Mr. Green was the regional manager and their newsletters show off all the “bling” people get for doing their job,

    These folks are paid ONLY commision (around 100 bucks per triple play) and will do anything and I mean anything to get you to sign up. they have ways of going to neighborhoods before they are officially opened for service and making orders which are not valid but using trouble tickets to scam veriZon out of pay. many are trained to knowingly rip you off and since there is NO TRAINING PROGRAM besides being a ” sales Rhino ” the reps will not know what the real affect of switching from one phone plan to another will have on you,

    * just sign here to reserve a date for installation, your not signing up with this just saying your interested (lie + a truck will show up and dig up your lawn like a day later + a tech will show up for install)

    *activation fee? only the new employees even mention it, until they get told to “play it down”

    *termination fee? oh thats only if you dont return your boxes (lie)

    *Do you get that channel or this channel , oh yah of course (lie)
    another great one is that this is a required upgrade so just sign here and nothing will change we will just let you try out some new stuff for awhile….

    there are a few other companies that do this for verizon but my experience at 2020 was all I needed to see how aweful the whole door to door industry is.

    I stopped going and started a real career, honest sales people dont make money doing this door to door, most people are not stupid enough to fall for this and finding holes in the systemand drinking and doing drugs with the right people are how these guys get promoted

    when one comes to the door, get their full name and then open your local sheriffs website and look them up, many have been arrested recently, most of the people I worked with were convicts or recently in jail. even better get their managers full name, they have probably been in jail recently too.

    also if you do want the service from them, Have them CALL the indiana call center and order from the call center right there , the actual verizon employees must answer all your questions and are capable of answering your question honestly. Verizon employees unlike the contractors are actually recorded and held to high standards.

    these guys arent even verizon contractors btw they are independent contractors working for a company with a verizon contract, they dont even have valid verizon ID numbers and the folks at verizon dont know who they are.

    If one shows up at your door with a panasonic toughbook make sure you watch all parts of the order on the screen, verizon has tried to make it hard to cheat the system with these devices so if they have to create a paper order just call verizon yourself. or order from the verizon website where you will prolly get a better perk anyways.

    A nice game if your actually educated on FiOS is to ask the rep technical questions, these guys/gals are so untrained that they dont even know what ftth actually is.
    they will even tell you that cable will stop working in feb. of 2009!

    the reps can write anything they want on the form but that doesnt mean you will get it, its not uncommon for them to write one form that you sign promissing the moon then go back to their car and forge your sig on a form with what you will really get. this is CYA on their part b/c verizon rarely checks these forms and the verizon call center Agents who actually take the orders will believe the door to door reps because they think that they work for verizon and have standards of honesty.

    its late and this entery is an unedited rant at this point, maybe I will write a confessions of a Door to Door FiOS rep sometime for all of you.

    —- THE BEST PART IS THAT MANY OF THEM HAVE PRAYER CIRCLES BEFORE GOING TO THE FIELD HAHAHAHAHAH! ——

    AT THIS POINT IF YOU WORK FOR 2020 YOU PROBABLY KNOW WHAT OFFICE I WORKED OUT OF, WHATEVER, GET A REAL JOB.

    So they changed their slogan to “Can you see me now?”

  51. Imaginary_Friend says:

    @spiritofseth: Holy moly, dude! You really should write a confessional.

    @silver-spork: Read spiritofseth’s post above. Yikes!

  52. Rachacha says:

    @theblackdog: Oh great…you had to go and suggest that. Now you KNOW the TSA Lawyers are trying to figure out how they can legally remove genetalia because they pose a terrorist threat. And I have to travel next week.

    Look for a post next week on this topic from Blogger Bob at the TSA blog.

    I am a Wisconsin native relocated in Texas and as much as I miss those lakes and trees, I gotta say I love the gun laws down here. I am thinking there are quite a few silent readers out there that would ‘fix the glitch’ had it happened to them. Is this a great country or what? [abcnews.go.com]

  59. Haltingpoint says:

    The fun thing to do if you know your tech is to string them along, asking a bunch of tech questions and getting their bullshit answers. Take copious notes.

    Then, when they try to get you to sign, hold off. Instead, go down your list point by point and ask them “why did you say X when the truth is Y”.

    Of course, this requires being somewhat educated on the subject matter. Often times they will be so pissed that you wasted their time that they’ll just storm off.
