I'm ashamed to say, I cringe. Years ago, some came to my house and tried to give me some pamphlets. I politely told them that I was a Catholic and really did not have the time to visit with them. They left. When I was about to leave my house, I found a pamphlet on my windshield with the title "10 things wrong with being Catholic". I respect their faith, they should respect mine.
They most certainly do. They are very pushy. I had a similar experience and they were surrounding me at a bus terminal and wouldn't let me pass.
Slowly start walking faster until we're both sprinting through the store.
I smile, they're nice people
I back away. I respect other peoples views and opinions but I do not appreciate being force fed views I don't necessarily agree with.
I say no thank you and walk away.
Look really enthusiastic, wide eyed and smiling, then say something lengthy in Gaelic and if they respond with nothing more than a distant idiot-like smile. Wave at them, happily and walk away.
Lets chat, I can out argue you.
I don't answer the door. or if they catch me off guard i just say sorry, no thank you.

Hmmmm ....guess he got what he wanted.
..i immediately attempt to convert them to satanism.
******* is it too late to change directions? is it too late to turn around? Yep too late they're coming towards me, ****.
Did their mother iron those shirts??
Run or say "no that's okay, have a good day"
If I'm home, I answer the door in the nude. That has historically been very effective to truncate the exchange. On the street, I'd probably move swiftly in a direction away from the JWs.
I tell them i am agnostic and i am not interested in any discussion they hope to offer
Let them in for a study. I love to apply what we lern.
Taze 'em with the question... "Who is Charles Taze Russell?"
Walk away, walk away, walk away!!
My parents were witnesses,and I attended until able to break away at 15.Sadness is how I feel,because they are well intended people who believe they have the truth,but are deceived by the very one they fear,satan.
