Default My first experience with JWitnesses

Just had a knock at my door - my first experience with a Jehovah's Witness coming to my door. I have to give them credit for having guts to spread their religion by door to door method- I can't imagine going to stranger's houses - Anyway, she didn't give me time to say anything, she just handed me the pamphlet and talked about a gathering they are having to help unite families in Christ and then said, "thank you" and was gone. Wow. I've always had this dreaded vision of this experience, but it was relatively painfree.

Though I am not usually bothered, I think it is because my neighbor is way high up in the JW from what I have been told anyway. People are in and out of there all the time. Heck, they offered to help me move rock in their suits and ties one day, some of his parishioners were working on his truck trying to get a shock off in their suits and ties too

I had a similar experience with them. Except that I was woking on my kitchen and had the back door propped open when they stepped in to say hello. All I got to say is, if you took the pamphlet they'll be back wanting to know if you have a chance to read and what you thought. It's not over yet!:tonka:

I usually ask if I we could continue the conversation at their house, since I'm usually ransacking the one I am in when they visit.

Yes, it is hot outside. No, I didn't offer her anything to drink. I felt bad because she was in nylons and a long dress.

Funny thing was I wasn't even home when they returned and my wife had to deal with them. They were asking her if I had a change to review the watchtower they dropped off a few days ago. I neglected or forgot to tell her they stopped by the first time. Surprise :tonka:

I hope they come back when my kids are screaming and there's chaos in my house, then I won't feel bad being short with them.

I usually just answer the door in my underwear holding a beer in the left hand and a pistol in the right.

Usually they don't have much to say

guts, yeah. tact, not really. truth, even more not really. I like dialouging with them, and I have even visited a kingdom hall just to see what they are about. Very nice people, but they have their own special bible unlike ALL others.
