Do you hate it when people come to your door preaching about their God?

Ugh! These Mormon and Jehova(sp) people keep coming to my house. We don't want to hear about THEIR religion. But they just keep talking and bugging us and coming back. If we ignore the door they come back later. WTF I want to slap these people or sic my dog on them or something.

  • I asked this question a while back... it annoys the heck out of me because they don't go away when you ask them the first time... I said punch in my question and some people got all offended but this is how they make me feel.

    I am with you on this one.

  • Did you not read the post thehairnazi? she said she ignores the door and they come back. They do this to me too. Except I ignore the door and they come back and come back and come back until someone finally gets tired of them coming everyday and tells them we're not interested AGAIN.... But of course they leave their magazines and COME BACK uuuuuuuuuugh

  • It was really bad when we first moved here, but they've calmed down a lot. I always answer the door and tell them they have the wrong house. Ignoring them seems to make them more determined. When my oldest son was a baby, the JWs came constantly and kept waking him up. I printed up a sign for my door that said:

    "I'm not buying what you're selling, so take your product, religion, or politics elsewhere.
    **Girl Scout cookies OK!**"

    That stopped it completely.

  • Ha ha I feel ya! I just try not to answer the door, but if I accidentally do, thinking its someone else, I just politely say, "Sorry I'm already saved or sorry not interested and shut the door in their face." They leave. I am a Christian and do not push my religion on anyone, but I just don't see how they can not take it personally everyone slamming the door in their face all the time. One time one of them wouldn't leave and my husband got angry and told the guy he was about to call the cops.
