Jehovah's Witness

On a bbc tea time programme the other night, they did a piece on the above, and the reporter was taken to a meeting by a Hugo Montgomery-Swann and his family, would this be our man?

As far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter if it is him or not as long as he leaves it at the office.

Yes agreed, as long as he doesn't knock on my door every other week just as I'm dishing up Sunday Lunch.
You'd have thought the sight of me with the carving knife in my hand telling them I'm not interested would be enough to give them the message, but oh No, every other week at 1pm on the dot the door gets knocked on. If its not answered it gets knocked again, despite me asking them not to come back.
People can believe what they want as far as I'm concerned as long as they don't knock on my door and want to tell me about it. B*stards.

Rant Over

When Rosanna was pregnant some years ago we had Jehovah witnesses come over and start pestering my missus at lunch times. Now for those of you that have met the wife, she's a tactile non agressive sort, after a week of this every lunchtime, the missus getting worried and the fact they started on the unborn child bit, well quite frankly I'd had enough! I came home lunch times the following week and found them on the doorstep after a couple of days. I quite politley stated that we were athiests and we as a family weren't interested in anything they had to offer. Then I escorted them off my property and told them that if they returned I would put a horrible curse on them and their families and failing that the old plod. Not a swear word was uttered!

They never returned.

I have discovered the perfect solution to that problem. I have a hose tap to one side of the front door with a coiled hose connected. If one of those J. W's or Mormons come knocking I walk outside turn the hose on and point it in their general direction. No words need to be uttered they get the message really quickly.
