    Are they not the most pushy solicitors?! They're worse than magazine and solar heating sales people.
    Because of the JWs and the fact I work from home, I had to put a No Solictors sign on my front door.
    So what happens yesterday while I'm working? I see them come to my front door expecting them to turn away. Oh no...they knocked, then knocked again, then repeatedly rang my doorbell. They could see me as my office is in the front of the house. When I opened the door (I was on a conference call at the time) I was less than kind. I said did you read the sign? He said oh we're not solictors. I said no? You're selling religion. Then he proceeded to want to share a prayer and give me a Watchtower for a small donation of course.
    I said no. I work from home, you interrupted my conference call and left 10 people waiting while you blatantly ignored my sign.
    And then I go away, don't ever come back, and slammed the door.
    I had reached my limit with these asses. They come to the neighborhood EVERY WEEK.

    Anyone have similar experience with solicitors?

    I just let 'em knock. Luckily my doorbell doesn't work very well -- consider disconnecting it when you have meetings. No JW's yet, thank fsm.

    there is a nest of them around here somewhere. the first time i opened the door there were 3 very dour looking guys. i bullshitted my way out and now have a sign saying don't disturb. they still knock every few months and leave a pamphlet.

    i had a roomate back in the day, who invited 2 of them in to discuss religion. he was high as a kite of course. it was very annoying.

    I've known a handful of JWs, and they were always very nice to me, NEVER tried to proselytize me, seemed pretty "normal" except for the thing about holidays...

    Down here it's the GodDamned Baptists banging on the door, leaving tracts about how you're going to Hell if you don't join their church, etc.



    PS: and the occasional Mormon....

    Sounds as if your house just didn't happen to be on the list. I'm sure they were perfectly fine outside of their scheduled rounds, as were the one or two I've met. As far as I understand (and I don't really know anything) the door-to-door thing is inherent to their practices, and they all have to do it.

    The absolute worst thing about these fucknuts is that they refuse life-saving blood-products for themselves and their children, citing religious objections to them. Tell that to the 15 YO kid who died four months ago at the ER from blood loss, when a simple transfusion would have saved his life.

    I'm usually very tolerant of religious beliefs, but every one of these fucktards are WAC.

    One time, JW come to door, and Chwiza tell them 'go out and come back with 2 tacos - you can convert me to Zowoastwian if you want'

    I always lock the door and wave them in from inside. It's funny watching them act all confused and disoriented not being able to open the door. I just watch them and act like I don't know what the problem is. The whole event takes about 3 minutes, but it is three minutes enjoyed.

    Clever; you could add to the effect by ringing an audible "buzzer" as if to unlock it.

    Generations of my family have done this. When I was a kid I thought they were monsters coming to kill us.
