Two girls from a local high school just came around selling raffle tickets and calendars for a school fundraiser. I live in an apartment building where you need to ring buzzers to get in. They ran my buzzer and I didn't know who it would be so I went out to see who it was/what they wanted and they told me what they were selling, asked if I was interested/etc. I politely declined.

Just then my neighbor came rushing out her door angrily saying "Don't buzz people's buzzers! Why would you do that! You don't ring people's buzzers like that. What are you doing, what are you selling? Who are you selling these for?" and then said she was going to call the high school about it.

Is this an overreaction or is that really a no-no? I've had people ring my buzzer for campaigns and petitions before and never thought anything of it. I was shocked by her anger about it.
