Back in the 80s when the people of Ethiopia was starving, a group of JW's came by my house. My mother and I loved to go to garage sales on Saturdays. My mother would drive the wrong way on a one way street to get to one.
This one Saturday morning, my mother came by to pick me up when a group of JWs came by. Big mistake. They approached my mother and asked if she believed in G'd and she said yes, but not yours. The head lady asked why and my mother said, some of your teachings aren't kosher with me and the actions of JW's are not that up and up either. The lady pressed on and asked why did my mother think that way. My mother said, you people go from door to door trying to convert people to your way of thinking and worship while at the same time ostracizing your family members because they disagree with some of your dogma.
The lady said, you don't know what you're talking about. My mother said, don't I? The lady became alarmed and asked what do you mean? My mother gave the name of a friend who is a JW and told the group about the ostracizing of a friend's daughter who married someone outside of the JW faith. My mother said, that is not right, when you xtians claim that Jesus gives unconditional love.
The lady replied, excuse me, the JWs always have given unconditional love, especially the godless people in Ethiopia. My mother said, I'm so glad that brought that up. Explain to me, why did the JWs gain massive weight while the people in Ethiopia was starving to death, and why didn't your "religion" not inform the world of the famine until Ebony magazine reported this ungodly issue?
Me sense some hostility from the head JW. The lady cleared her throat several times trying to come up with a response. My mother told her, don't even try that $h*t with me. Take your silly a$$es off my property and never darken my door with your "grace."
After that confrontation, the JWs would walk as far as the property line to my house, walk across the street until they got to the property line to Scotty's house and then walk across the street to my neighbor next door. That went on for about 10 years until another group replaced them and then trying to getting rid of them became fun and a nightmare.
Years ago, I used to shoot on a pistol team. Just a bunch of people getting together on a Thursday night and shooting.
One Saturday morning, as I was cleaning my target pistol, the JW's came to the door to sell their drivel....I answered the door, without realizing I had not put the pistol down. I told them that they were really annoying and I would appreciated it if they would not come back again.
They really looked horrified......it was only when I went back to the table that I realized they were going back to their friends telling them how the person at "that address" threatened them with a gun.
I've found saying that I'm an atheist (which I don't normally do) sets them aback somewhat. That gives me time to shut the door. (Once I had to define the term for them; it was pretty alien to their thinking.)
That's a great story. I wish I had a good story for scaring off religious door to door people, but they seem to have my house on a no-visit list. I don't know why. Probably better that way.
Best JW put down is by one of my friends. Goes like this:
JW knocks at door.
Door is opened.
Friend says, 'I've read that book....he dies in the end!'
Door is shut!!!
