Word association

Believe it or not..
This isn't a pop at any religious folk by any means and I'm not trying to be flippant.

Two of Jehovah's Witness's came knocking on the door yesterday while I was writing a post..
(Two males one mid twenties, the other, about early seventies..... either that or he had a tough newspaper round)

I've come to enjoy these little encounters over the years (bless).
Opinions have a time and place and I've found this one a great release to bitch about the state of our planet, dodgy underhand government world policies, corporate corruption and crap human beings in general etc! And they actually stand and listen!! friends usually switch off when I jump on that soap box, so it makes for a nice change.

They wanted to know my thoughts on Armageddon
(no cheap Bruce Willis quips girls)
It was bloody freezing at the front door, sometimes I'll let them in, but not today I was busy, but not too busy for a quick chat (WTF)
LoL, I do it to myself I do.
Half an hour passed, they'd hardly said a word apart from a question or two, a few sentences here and there & some nods of understanding a handshake each and they were on their way.

My belief, thus far is simple really but that's for another time.
I will say this though Nine hundred and sixty odd years is a fucking good innings.

My question is in two parts:
A) How do YOU cope when a Jehovah's witness comes knocking?
Do you meet the requirements needed to live forever in the coming Paradise on earth "LoL" and would you want to?

Elder Mathias, son of Deuteronomy of Gath.
Mathias [to a guard] Do I say yes?
Guard Yes.
Mathias [To the elder] Yes.
Elder You have been found guilty by the elders of the town of uttering
the name of our lord, and so as a BLASPHEMER...
Crowd Ooooh.
Elder ...you are to be stoned
to death.
--------[The crowd look anxious to kill Mathias]
Mathias Look. I'd had a lovely supper, and all I said to my wife was 'That
piece of hallibut was good enough for Jehovah'.
Crowd Oooooooh!
Elder BLASPHEMY!!!! He said it again
Crowd Yes, yes.
Elder Did you hear him?
Crowd Yes, yes.
Woman1 Really.
--------[There is a moment of silence as the elder thinks, after hearing the
woman's voice.]
Elder Are there any women here today?
Crowd [Guiltily]
Elder Very well. By virtue of the authority vested in me...
--------[One of the more impatient women throws a stone and hits mathias on
the head.]
Mathias Oh lay off... we haven't started yet.
Elder Come on. Who threw that? Who threw that stone? Come on.
Crowd She did, she did, he, he, he, him, him, him, he did.
[Their voices drop as they realise their mistake.]
Woman1 Sorry, I thought we'd started. {Said lovelyly.}
Elder Go to the back. There's always one, isn't there. Now where were we?
Mathias Look, I don't think it ought to be blasphey, just saying Jehovah.
Crowd [Shocked] He said it again!
Edler You're only making it worse for yourself.
Mathias Making it worse? How could it be worse? Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah.

This scene from Monty Python's Life of Brian automatically pops into my head whenever I hear the name Jehovah. LoL

i just say: "thank i'm really not interested. goodbye." i had a flatmate who, since they always visited at the same time and you could hear them coming up the stairs would answer the door naked, but still say pretty much the same thing, or "fuck off! can't you see i am busy." -- depending on her mood.

HEYFREELOVE: "LoL" If I had the body for it that is definitely a tactic I would use (That's so funny).
Personally, I only talk to them when I know I have the time.

PS Are they Strawberries or polka dots?

HEYBGIZSWEET: I don't have a favourite between them.... I love them both equally.

I'd never thought of something like that.. My friends think I'm mad enough as it is but it's definitely worth a shot next time its inconvenient.

I used to have a "Fuck off" attitude in my early twenties, but now I'd much rather get something out of the experience that makes me smile if I can! There's enough horror in the world as is, without me adding to it unneccessarily!

I know what you mean about that phone stuff!
As it goes though.. I had an interesting conversation last week (honest)with a girl from my bank trying to sell me some type of insurance.
(I'll see if I can write it as funny as it happened and post it, for you)

How rude... you'd think they'd get the message! I hope you didn't send the neighbour a Christmas card that year! LoL

I dont answer the door

One time I was at my mom's visiting and this lady just came up to the screen door and walked in and said hi hon where's your mom? I thought she knew my mother. My mother came out and was like uhhhhh who is this? It was a Jehovah's Witness. We laughed later.

And no I dont think I have the needed requirements to live forever

Purry {=}
