“As a kid, did you ever knock on people’s doors and run away before they could answer?” (joke)

Delivery vehicles (such as UPS) often have their employees knock on a door, and then walk away before the person can answer. “As a kid, did you ever knock on people’s doors and run away before they could answer? Well, guess what? UPS is hiring!” is a joke that has been printed on many images.

“As a child did you ever knock on doors and run away before they answered? These people need you. They’re hiring” (a UPS truck is shown) was posted on Twitter by ~YODA~ on January 21, 2016. “As a kid, did you ever knock on people’s doors and run away before they could answer? Well guess what, we’re hiring” (a meme with a UPS truck is shown) was posted on Twitter by Myu on January 26, 2016.
