I’ve never had a religious group canvass my neighborhood before. Anyway, this weekend, a guy came to my door and said that he was a Jehova’s Witness and they were inviting people to their church (some mass or event). I said that I wasn’t interested, and he immediately thanked me, turned around and left. I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed. That’s it? One "I’m not interested" and you’re going to let me off?

I don’t think I was looking for an argument. It’s just that I always hear about people in other parts of the country getting bombarded with religious types knocking at their door during dinner and not knowing when to leave. I thought at the very least I would have had the experience of talking to a real live Jehova’s Witness and seeing what he had to say. Oh well.

tom_g,
I used to be bothered a lot by “religious types” until I put a sign on my front door that says: “No Solicitations”. I haven’t been bothered since.

How about a sign: “No Proselytizations”.

LOL
