Following up on yesterday’s question about an invasion of privacy:
The doorbell rings, you see through the glass that it’s a couple of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Your response is?
Unlike telemarketers, I am unfailingly polite but firm: “No, thanks.” If they persist, I tell them I will listen to them if first they’ll listen to me tell them all about George Fox and the Quakers. That usually does the trick. Failing that, I tell them I’m gay.
That is better than a friend of mine in Michigan who had a night job and was awakened one too many times by persistent peddlers of salvation. He came to the door naked.
