This was not a planned entry, but this just happened and it was awesome and I just had to blog it right away. Somehow, two Jehovah witnesses sneaked into my building and were getting their preaching/recruiting mode on, when they had the bad fortune of choosing my door. They tricked my sister-in-law into thinking they were UPS or Fed-Ex, so when she opened the door she was in for an unpleasant surprise.
Fortunately for her, I was just getting out of the bathroom (which happens to be next to the entrance), to get my shower stuff. I noticed she was just standing by the door and her arms weren’t moving to receive a package so I turned off the ventilation fan to hear what was going on. As soon as I heard, “in John…” I knew what the situation was.
Both my wife and sister-in-law are nice. Too nice to a fault. So naturally, my sister-in-law was just standing there politely listening and wasn’t going to tell them to leave. It didn’t help that they were two elderly women talking down to her in a motherly fashion. (mind your manners and all). I, of course, have no such inhibition (and I had a shower to take). This is how the rest went down.
Me (Stepping right behind my sister-in-law): “you’re not allowed to solicit in these premises. If you don’t leave now I’m going to have to call the police”
Jehovah Witnesses (looking offended): “we’re soliciting?!”
Me (with a straight face): “yeah you are. You need to leave now”
I calmly close the door as they shamble out the building and quickly take my shower so I can get this post up. What a great story, right? Well maybe not but I thought it warranted telling. My wife thinks I was too rude but I thought it was rude for them to sneak in and harass uninterested people to buy into their religion. Give force in kind and all that.
