When a neighbor sends out their well dressed children to sell you any number of fund raising products for their over- achieving public or private school - sets up an over-priced lemonade stand - makes bad pottery and tries to sell as art , they are "cul-de-sac begging". Usually occurs in middle to upper class neighborhoods and is most pronounced around holidays. Considered poor taste to throw water on them and yell "get a job"
Hey kid didn't you read the sign, NO cul-de-sac begging!
