    I am creating a sign to tape to my front door. I have gotten tired of the solicitors that come to my door. It is very difficult for me to be mean to anyone. Yes, that is one of my faults and I am trying to work on it.

    Today, a little, tiny, sweet looking, elderly Jeovovah's Witness came to my door. She asked if I thought that my church taught the truth according to scriptures. I told her that I was happy with my church's teachings. She showed me a bible verse that had nothing to do with the subject. Then she gave me a Watchtower pamphlet. Okay, I thought. I can go inside now. Nope, she asked if she could come back in a month. Because I am a total wimp and felt sorry for the woman I said, okay and then smacked my stupid self in the head. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I should have said, no. [​IMG] The word, okay, just slipped out before I thought about it.

    It is even worse when sweet, cherub faced kids come to the door. [​IMG]

    So, I decided to make a sign that covers everyone who solicits.

    Do you think that I should include anything else?

    I don't want to buy from anyone or be sold anything or be converted to another faith.

    It sounds like you've got it covered. I'm sure something else will come up, so leave a little room on the sign lol.

    Also, I don't think being nice is a fault. There are plenty of meanies in the world already.

    Just a note about the witnesses, they often travel together in a big van. Certain church members will go to certain houses depending on who they want to target....
    Cute girls go to the doors where men answer, mom with a kid goes to the house where mom answers, etc....

    They used to park across the street from my house when they canvases the neighborhood. It was hilarious.
