My family moved to a new home in 2015. Since moving in, I have been visited by Jehovah’s Witnesses six or seven times. Sometimes two people, sometimes four people, but the same group in ages between 50 and 80. I’ve been friendly each time. They haven’t acknowledged that they’ve met me before, which is frustrating after so many visits. The first time, I stated that my family is Roman Catholic. They asked about when we moved in, if we like the area, friendly chit chat. She continued to explain her magazine and forced it on me. The second time, they claimed they had to stop in because they loved my JOY nativity scene on my lawn. Another time, my Easter Blessings decor, or Fall Blessings Decor. They continue to push the magazines on me, even when I say, Please hold onto this for someone else. I’m Catholic and have my own religious materials. I’m not well, and some visits I’ve barely made it to the door and they could see I wasn’t doing well…instead of saying “sorry to disturb you, I see you’re not well, take care”. They say that and then continue with their speech and force a magazine on me. I’ve put something in my hands, but they’ve reached around me and set it inside my home. I blocked the door from my small escape artist cat, and they continue acknowledging they will be fast. I can’t be rude, no matter how much I want to be. I also live in a small area…I’m ten minutes outside of a small town. I’m in the country and they actually need to drive to me. Argh. I’m feeling harassed. I need a polite way to say ‘I’m not interested.” I’ve tried that, and they ask why. I’ve explained that I’m Catholic and have different beliefs than the Jehovah’s Witnesses. They then say, that’s great and we are just spreading the word. Their visits didn’t bother me, I was clear about my faith each time, but this time they were preachey and spoke to me like a rude teacher who wasn’t getting through to their child. I thought about putting up a sign that says Welcome to my Catholic Home’ but I know that will just encourage rather than discourage. Help. I need a nice way to say Leave Me Alone!
