  • You need to call the Kingdom Hall (or write a letter) and you need to tell them to that you wish not to be visited, you feel you are being harassed and you want it marked on their "Territory Card" if you don't use those words "territory card" they won't mark you and it will start again in a month or so. But what you are describing doesn't sound like real witnesses. We had a real issue around here with a group of ex-witnesses that was trying to force the town in to telling the witnesses to move their hall... They were doing the things you talk about more than the real ones were... Being raised as a witness I have never seen them work the same street more than once in a 6 month period - ever! In fact we are lucky to get them here once every few years. But that's what you'll have to do to get them to stop, is simply call the hall.

  • my husband decided to mess with them once....he let them come in and sat down with them for an hour debating on why the bible is wrong and why thier religion is wrong (now mind you my husband likes ALL religions) he had them so tounge tied they never came back! my husband is very very very intelligent and loves using his brain, sarcasm, and knowledge to scare them away...

  • A NO SOLICITING sign (can be handmade) and when they still knock, inform them that if they persist, you will call the police for harassment charges against them.

  • Actually, going to the door naked won't even stop them. Once, on a Sunday morning, I was walking from my living room to my bedroom without a top on (can't remember if I had on a bra or not) and there were TWO at my door, looking in. One was an older gentleman, one was a young guy. I slunk down to the floor, waddled over to a bureau where I had some t-shirts, put one over my head, waited a few minutes, and stood up... believe it or not, they were STILL there. this was back when I had no spine (weak) so I actually ended up going to the door! stupid me. Believe it or not the older guy just started talking to me like nothing had happened. I could tell the younger guy was embarrassed to still be there.

    I thought it was funny later.

  • They came to my house last weekend. I listened to them for a few minutes and did agree that things are getting out of hand these days (it's true). Then I politely told them that I was Catholic, was very strong in my beliefs and had no desire to change my religion. I then shook their hands, thanked them for coming by and told them to have a nice day. We'll see if they listened.

    You've already done that and it didn't work. I would put up no soliciting or no trespassing signs. If they still come to your door, I would tell them you don't appreciate it and will have to call the authorities if they don't respect your wishes.
