Jehovah's Witness at the Door
I was getting ready to head out to my office when I heard someone pounding on my door. I answered and found a man holding a flyer. Before I could say anything he handed it to me, and I immediately noticed it was a Watchtower publication. The last time a Jehovah's Witness showed up he attempted to launch into his proselytizing spiel, at which point I cut him off saying, "Don't waste your time, I'm an atheist and I'm totally uninterested." That produced a look of horror, and he mumbled something and took off. But this guy just wanted to inform me about some Easter event here in town, and mainly wanted to give me the flyer. It was nice to see a lower-pressure approach from one of the more aggressive religious organizations. Although he could have just stuck the flyer in my mailbox.
