Don't open the door.
Be the better man and be polite and simply ask them to leave due to your genuine lack of interest. The first step to a better world is simply being kind to each other no matter the faith.
I have tried that. Often. Each time they keep at it until I have to shut the door in their faces. And every time I tell them I am not interested the ask me if I am not interested in the truth. Once, I told them I already knew the truth. When they asked me what I thought was the truth, I told them the truth was that they were annoying me. And they should go away and stop harassing me at my home right when I was trying to prepare a meal for my family. Being polite should work both ways. When you ask someone to leave and not come back. They really should leave and NOT come back the next day.
The missionaries came back to your house more than once??? That's really unusual. When I was a missionary, if people weren't interested, we would just move on and talk to someone else. We'd also leave detailed maps of where we had previously visited for the new missionaries specifically so they could find new people to talk to. Even if the new missionaries visited the exact same areas that I had previously been to, it would be 4-5 months in between visits instead of every single day. That's just bizarre.
But hey, if the Mormons have come to your door repeatedly, it's obviously a sign from God that you need to be a Mormon :)
"Once, I told them I already knew the truth. When they asked me what I thought was the truth, I told them the truth was that they were annoying me."
That made me laugh. :)
pull out my copy of "CULTS AND NEW RELIGIONS" and ask them how they can really believe stuff that was written by a man covering his face with a hat(with a magic crystal inside) and dictating one letter at a time. either that or tell them "THERE'S GONNA BE A HOUSING SHORTAGE IN HEAVEN" and see if i can sell them a condo
Listen to them!! I was one of them. I traveled over 7,000 miles, gave up my girl friend, my best friend, my job, my schooling and being with my family and friends for 2 years at my own expense because I had something so important to say.
I don't open the door and then I knock back at them from the inside of my home.
Well--If your going to knock from the inside
Ask them to let you out
It DOE'S confuse people!
I am mormon. I'm not a freak as many may assume. Missionaries are trying to do their best to make others happy through sharing what makes them happy. If you are truly not interested, don't be rude just tell them you are not interested. The treatment some of our missionaries face is just harsh. They aren't trying to brainwash you!! BE KIND:) they are ( usually) SUPER NICE PEOPLE
I tell them the money is n the mailbox and to just leave it by the door.........
Haha I thought the question said 'morons' at the door. I'd probably deal with Mormons the same way!
I act especially daft when doorstep callers come, you can see them start to edge away and make excuses after a short while............ works every time!
Answer the door and say I am the babysitter.
I would tell them that an angel has given me some golden tablets with sacred texts explaining that their religion is bunk--and that I would show them the golden tablets, but they "disappeared."
the same way i deal with morons knocking on my door
I have been on their unofficial do not knock list for over 7 years.
I used to listen, but now I just say, "I'm really not interested"
i greet them in yiddish and invite them to become jews so far no takers lol
You open the door, look up to the sky, look down at them and then look at the sky again, stretch out your arms and yell "ODIN!!!!" You'll never see the mormons ever again.
Jess be nice to then and jess say " No thank you I'm a attedniding another church at this time " Then close you're door .
draw a devil sign on your forehead put on a black cloak answer the door speaking in tongues
I was a Mormon missionary back in the day. Oh man, the stories I could tell you about the crazy stuff people did to try to scare me off...
I had people point shotguns at me, sick their dogs on me, come to the door nude, claim they were the devil, or Jesus, you name it, it happened.
I quickly learned that normal people just don't come to the door when the missionaries knock. It's the weirdos that show up because weirdos love an audience.
I answered the door once with heavy metal music playing, with my pet phython around my neck, no shirt with all my tattoos showing. Smoke in 1 hand and a beer in the other. They haven't been back since!
