This one at the door also said she "used to feel like you!" and then her sister died blah blah.

Classic, always preying on the weak.

That's because they are brainwashed cultists.


My sister's a JW and it's really not as bad as that. I was shocked and appalled when she 'came out', devastated actually because I thought I would lose her, but it's fine and we still have a great relationship.


Has her handwriting improved?

strawberry float :lol:

@Octo - that's good to hear.

They just come across as proper brainwashed cultists. As a rule, I just don't answer the door to anyone unless I'm expecting a delivery.


Same but I wasn't thinking :fp:

If it's not these banana splits, it's someone selling windows.

"Hello there sir, how you doing? Lovely day isn't it? I'll tell you why I'm here, we're just doing some work at your neighbour's down the road, and I noticed you looked like your driveway could do with a clean. As we're here already, we can steam clean your driveway today and we'll do you a 20% discount as well, does that sound like something you'd want to do? We can chuck in cleaning your gutters, too, and we'll deal with these weeds, do a great job, how does that sound?"

And there's never any sign of anyone doing any work at a neighbour's house.

Whoever comes to the door just lie and tell them you also do their job. Roofer? Mastered it, mate. Driveway? Laid it myself, bruv. Windows? Fitted it with these bare hands. Jehovah's Witness? Pretend to be deaf. Sorry, can't hear a word you're saying...

Painfully accurate.

Maybe next time I'll just talk on and on about the witness and see how long it takes them to realise I'm not talking about the magic sky man.

I enjoyed the joke, but I also like the idea of saying and doing the exact same thing when Jehova's turn up.

"Yeah I chat to Him through that, mate"

I have really funny memories of them calling at home when I was a kid. My ma always shouted for us to be totally quiet and not move. So we all just dived under the window sill and hid until they left.

In one of the university libraries today (the busy, noisy one because all my places in the nice quiet one had been taken) and everyone around me sounded like they were going to cough up a lung. No one was wearing masks, no attempt to cover their mouths, just happy to cough everywhere. Since I don't want to catch something and the noise was just too much I've ended up coming home. I'm probably going to be infected with whatever it is so RIP me.

I'm always surprised at hearing about people's problems dealing with religious door-knockers (although speaking of knockers the last JW that came round had some sizeable ones).

I just politely say "nah, I'm not really into all that.." and then say thanks as I'm closing the door. Only takes a few seconds.

Been on hold for an hour and fifty minutes with the hospital about an appointment, and in that time I've only moved from 6th to 3rd in the queue. :simper:

Seriously though, hope you actually get to speak to someone soon, i hate being stuck on hold like that.

I could have driven there and back to talk to someone on the desk by now.

Edit: the call just automatically disconnected at exactly 2 hours. :|

I bet those 3 places you moved up in the queue were just people timing out at 2 hours. :lol:

I blame loneliness. About 90% of the gooseberry fool people are talking about on the phone is irrelevant and the call taker is merely placating their need to discuss a million things tangentially at best related to the problem.

This is why phones should be banned.

"It should be common sense to just accept the message Nintendo are sending out through their actions."
