There's a knock at the door.............

You stop what you're doing (normally in the middle of your dinner) go to the front door and open it to the greeting.....

'hello, can i interest you in the new Watchtower magazine'



I'm not going to start a thread on any religion bashing mission because i think everyone is entitled to believe what they like but can they not keep it to themselves without trying to impose it on others.

Either that or i'm going to follow them home, let them settle down with their supper and then knock on the door to see if they want to talk about atheism.

I wouldn't mind if it was once in a while but i seem to get them most weeks.........do they have learning difficulties or something.

Re: There's a knock at the door.............

I have honestly found that the best way to get rid of them is simply to tell them that you are comfortable with your own religion, thanks very much - then they go away politely and you've not been rude..

You don't even have to tell them you're a Jedi.

Just like them to call your bluff... then what? "Only joking, sod off"

Time to put on the theatrical blood trickling down your chin and all over your shirt. "I've been expecting you, do come in" :menacing_grin:

Tell them you are Jewish. I'm not joking. They will leave very quickly.

Re: There's a knock at the door.............

Had 2 of them on the doorstep yesterday.

But as they were:

a. female
b. young
c really good looking

I just couldn't bring myself to tell them where to go.

They didn't seem bothered by the fact that I was wearing a death metal T-shirt with a skull on it either.

Re: There's a knock at the door.............

If I am bored I will invite them in, after about half an hour of me pontificatiing on my theory of everything which specifically excludes deity in any form, they are usually edging nervously towards the door away from the madman.
When they finally back down the drive with sheepish grins on their faces they can, more often than not, hear me calling after them "and another thing, if God really did exist then why............etc.etc."
