Well, it all started a few months ago. This little old lady comes to my door and greets me with a big smile. Now when I say old, I mean 80 plus (no offence to our 80 plus members) and she starts asking me about my life. It finally gets the better of me and I ask her who she is and she passes me The Watchtower book.
Now I think, 'Aaah crap!' I mean I was raised by two atheists, I'm probably the most unreligious person in Adelaide.
but I have the problem of this woman being old and really lovely so I don't want to be rude. Stupid move I know, I take the book and say goodbye.
Now a month later she comes back with another one, I don't have the time to chat so I take the book and say goodbye, politely explaining I have to go (another dumb move)
She comes round again and I think myself, I have to explain my stance on religion so I politely tell her, look I'm not religious, never will be and i will never go to church. She kindly excepts this and hands me the book anyway and says goodbye.
Well, she comes around today doesn't she? Now I had no time to explain, chat or anything. So I lied and told her that I was on the phone. She slides the book under door.
how do I politely tell her to LEAVE ME ALONE!! Anyone else had this happen? I mean I hand it to them, it was shear genius on their part to send out the oldest, sweetest lady they have at that church.
( just so we are clear, I don't want a religious debate, I have no judgement about anyone's religion. I feel everyone is free to believe whatever they wish.)
