Suppose that would work

I had some Trick or treaters knocking on the door 2 days early?! And i was the only one in the house at the time and i had my Boa out for abit.

So i exspected it to be my mum so i went to the door, casual with the boa in my hand, and all i saw was a group of about 5 older teens shout "Sh*t, hes got a snake" And then they all just ran?!

I was like More sweets for me

I did feel bad though because if i thought it would be someone else then i would have put the boa back, Haha.

I never answer the door with a snake as a rule,because I dont think it's fair to scare someone who might have a phobia, but like you I was expecting it to be family who had forgotten their key.

My postman now walks alittle faster from my house when he has delievered my mail. I didnt realise i still had my little royal out, she had got down my top and rested in the middle of my bra so i left her to it. He had a parcel for me so i opened the door, i thought he was being a perv at first and was like What The Fu...... oh yeah er sorry i forgot i had her out she wont hurt you.

Some snakes have all the luck. I had one at the door Wednesday night. After her little speech I just replied with " I don't vote for anyone". It worked for me.

You could also try the alternate method; answer the door with tomato ketchup down your front, an opposition party leaflet in one hand and a carving knife in the other, followed by the words "I SAID NO! WHAT WILL MAKE YOU PEOPLE LISTEN!"
