    I had some 'door knockers' the other day

    First topic message reminder :

    I'm not sure which 'religion' they were as I didn't give them much chance, as soon as they said they were from 'such and such' a place, I said 'no thank you' and closed the door on them, it really annoys me when people think it's ok to come religiously harassing you at home, I wouldn't dream of knocking on a strangers' door and shoving my beliefs down their throat.

    I also close the door on them. I feel the same way as you do.

    What gets me is when a customer thinks it is alright to start pushing their beliefs on me...and won't quit even when I make it quite clear that me interests lie elsewhere. They know they have me trapped and I am unable to be rude and tell them in plain English to take their beliefs somewhere else.  :rage:

    LOL, same here!  I learned long ago not to try talking with them and Self Esteem allows me to POLITELY close the door.  They can no longer "shove" beliefs down my throat, like they did when I was an innocent child,  unless I let 'em.
