Use an intercom to ascertain identity of visitor, By this method, you may avoid opening door and risk of inadvertantly inviting them inside. It is crucial that you use this approach at all times - even when front door is open and visitor is plainly visible behind screen door. Feign blindness.
Provide an unwelcoming atmosphere at entrance - no coatracks, tables, chairs or ironing boards that could hold coats. Should visitor enter, assume military "at ease" stance with your hands clasped behind your back. Maintain this position so that visitor cannot hand their coat to you.
If guest still enters and wants to sit, prepare furniture by placing large, angular rocks under cushions. Hide old rotten half-eaten bananas and unfinished yogurt cups (with children, there is always a constant and abundant supply on hand) in strategically chosen areas of furniture to soil your visitor's clothing so that you may hurry them off to dry cleaner and resume work.
