    Long day, during dinner where the kids are finally mercifully eating something we cooked, the doorbell rings. Directly next to the doorbell is a "no soliciting" sign.

    My wife gets up to answer, I have to hold the 70-pound excitable barking black lab back and this fuckhead launches into his pitch, not letting us get a word in edgewise. I bellow from behind the door, "This is not a good time. We're eating dinner."

    "Well, hey man, there are nicer ways of saying that. We're only trying to raise awareness for..."

    "Get the fuck off my stoop. Nice enough for you?"

    "Well, God bless you, and you really should be nicer to people who are just trying to..."

    "Good night, and fuck off!"

    Can't help but think of if this was my old man back in the early 70s who probably would've chased the shithead out into the yard with a baseball bat. Thank goodness I don't drink as much as my ancestors did at dinner.

    You were too kind. He was totally in the wrong, and you had no obligation to be nice.

    I once answered the door to the Mormons and told them they were too late and I'd just signed a two year contract with the Jehovah's Witnesses.

    "However, if you could help buy me out of the deal..." I offered.

    The Mormons have yet to return 6 years later.

    A pictogram of a gun and an empty pill bottle should work, right?

    I answered the door to some old Christian ladies and I just said I don't believe in God and slammed the door

    If I know it is Jehovah's Witness' at the door, I use a Al Bundy line, "Peg, get the baseball bat, the Jehovah's Witness' are at the door." It usually gets them to leave. But if not I tell them to leave. If it is some other annoying group, and I have time to open the gun safe, I answer the door with a pistol in my hand and tell them to leave. They get the message quickly.

    Once my wife was in the front yard and one of our elected state representatives was going door-to-door. When he came to our house, he said, "Hi, I'm..." My wife interrupted him and said, "I know who you are, get off my property." He left quickly.

    If the religious types come up to my door I tell them I'm a devil worshipper.

    I bust balls with the Jehovah's Witnesses.

    I'll ask, "Is it true that, in your faith, you believe only 144,000 people get into heaven?"

    "Yes," they'll say.

    "What if it's full already?"

    I'm guessing your kids appreciated the F bombs. Big barking dog, kids listening to parents cursing, sounds like an episode of Cops.

    When I worked 3rd shift I had a large sign on my door that said "SLEEPING - DO NOT DISTURB !!!". One day I was sound asleep when I heard someone knocking, it turned out to be one of the idiot FedEx drivers who can never find anyone's house in my neighborhood (even though UPS never has a problem). I was totally pissed and screamed "CAN YOU FUCKING READ?" at him but he didn't even seem to understand, he just kept asking me for directions. I picked up the baseball bat I keep behind the door and told him I'd smash the windshield on his truck if he didn't leave immediately, that finally got through to him and he ran like hell.

    He's probably the asshole who was knocking on your door at dinnertime.

    I would never answer my doorbell. Either you text me to inform of your arrival or im never even hearing the doorbell. What's next, you'll call my house phone, missing since 04.....
