The Jehovah's Witnesses just came round
they asked me a few questions about what I thought the future holds, and also asked me some questions about my own faith which I was very happy to answer. We talked for five minutes and it was very pleasant, and then they went away.

:)

1. Thats exactly what I do
I tell them that I believe, so and so and then they ask me to take a magazine and they leave. They caught me in the garden the last time they showed up! They weren't pushy at all. :hug: :loveya:

4. Hey you!
:hug: :loveya:

They tried to encourage me a little bit to see things their way, but that's okay. It's their mission - it was the whole point of their being on my doorstep. I am quite convinced by our own philosophy, and I told them so, very politely. They didn't press it very hard and we parted amicably.

Just thought I'd share it with the lounge; not every encounter with the God Squad has to be unpleasant.

I guess really I'm part of the God Squad myself - I just play for a rival team. :evilgrin:

2. Ever since some came on Christmas day,
bothering my family, I have no respect for them. I usually tell them now that I need to sacrifice a goat so I can't talk.

6. Apparently I am more polite than you are.

5. I've lived here four years; they come round maybe once or twice a year
It's no sweat.

7. You're lucky
I've had them walk in the house without knocking or invitation. And getting rid of them is practically impossible.

8. Oh, if anybody walked in the house without invitation
I'd scream bloody murder. No matter who it is.
