OK, are there any JW’s here? Will you please tell those in charge of your church that we don’t appreciate your coming to our doors?
I was startled out of a sound sleep by 2 JW’s ringing my doorbell. They asked how I was, and I said “Sleeping” The woman said “I’m sorry. We certainly didn’t mean to wake you up.”, as a lead in to her memorized speech. which she apparently was going to give regardless of my answer. I think if I had told her that I was bleeding to death and I was waiting for the rescue, she would have gone on with her speech. So she insensitively went on to talk about the “tract” she was going to leave with me, all the while edging toward the opening side of the screen door, which I had no intention of opening.
Apparenlty they felt that since they had already got me out of bed (the equivalent of ringing someone’s bell at midnight), they would get on with their sales pitch.
They didn’t know enough to apologize (sincerely and not just as a lead in to their speech) and move along. Apparently they thought they had something (their religion) that I would be happy to give up sleep to hear about.
Well, since that was just a rant, I’m editing to add a question to all.
Would you go door-to-door looking for converts if your local church asked you to?
