Chris came home from work a while ago, and I asked him if he’d go out to the store to pick up a few things for us. His first stop was to the corner store, and as soon as he came back he quickly closed the door and said “Hide, the Jehovah Witnesses are coming!”.
Now, we have nothing against Jehovah Witnesses but we don’t subscribe to their beliefs and have been caught in the past standing in our door way discussing the pro’s and con’s of such beliefs with them. Frankly we really don’t care to do that. They can leave their pamphlets at the door if they’d like and we will look at them, but in general we don’t like opening the door to people that appear to be selling things whether that be a product or a belief.
After Chris shut the door, he closed our living room curtains and turned out the lamp beside me. Yeah he really wasn’t interested in talking! Well, actually he was still going to go out to the store and I guess he was attempting to hide me.
So … Chris just went out to the store and I’m sitting in the dark, on the floor listening for that fateful knock on the door.
The Jehovah’s were on the other side of the street when Chris was busy closing the curtains and turning out lights. I’m not sure when they’ll get around to knocking on our door, but I have no doubt that they will. So here I sit, typing away on my laptop as I sit on the cool uncomfortable hardwood floor.
I’m going to give it 15 more minutes and then go back to life as normal. With any luck they might already think that no one is home since they probably saw Chris leave with the car.
Is this crazy or what? What lengths have you gone to in order to avoid something?
