  • I don't think there is a nice way to do it. I know they will just keep coming back. You could try telling them you aren't interested in converting to their religion and that you respect their beliefs but that it just isn't for you. I don't know if that will work though. Usually you have to be very blunt with these people. They don't give up so easily. I wouldn't let them in my home though, that is just creepy. Just tell them you don't feel comfortable with that.

  • set up a specific time to 'meet up' and leave the house when they are supposed to arrive, and leave a note telling them you are not interested, and they need to stop comming by, or you will call harrassment on them.

  • I agree with pp. Get the "No Soliciting" sign to take care of the sales people.

    As far as the JW's, just explain to them that you appreciate their time, but that you have no intention of converting, or being baptized into the church. If they say, "Well cant we just speak with you?"
    Tell them that you have had several conversations regarding their religion, and that based on that, you feel that your current religion is the best fit for you and your family, and that you cannot fully commit to your faith if you have other religious affiliates trying to convert you.

  • Go to walmart and get a No Soliciting sign!!!! For the Jehovah's Witnesses and for the salepeople. If they keep bugging you, tell them that you're not interested. If you didn't know it, Jehovahs Witness is a cult.....

  • Or you could make a sign on your computer and tape it to your door.

  • Once my year-old son honked the enormous tit of a Jehovah's Witness who kept on a-coming and she and her handy pal never came back.
