    I lost my temper at the walking past the shops on my way to work. I was rude but he never asked again. and everyday I politely refused last day I was very very nasty he did recognize me each time but still refused to accept not interested. I dislike direcct debit donation collectors. This guy would not take no for an answer after that he commented on how I was that horrible selfish lady he was telling her about.

    Not rude. I give to select charities and dislike being made to feel guilty when i say no. I was told I was selfish by a charity that told me they could not help us when I was homeless(in car or family on weekends few hours drive from where we worked) and struggling to find a house. I went ballistic as their charity refused to help me but called me selfish for not donating

    A couple of religious folk came to the door early one Saturday morning - screaming hungry newborn, barking German shepherd, toddler wielding a wooden spoon and with a (clean) pair of nappy pants as a hat, and me in my pj's with vomit down the front (not mine) - they couldn't get away fast enough lol. It probably looked like the gateway to hell but who rings the doorbell at 8.30 on a Saturday??

    There is no access to my front door that does not include getting past my boy here. Although we bring him in after dark other wise drunks tend to assault the fence and scream at him on their way past

    Makes getting parcels a pain in the bum, though it is so worth it to not have to explain that I'm both broke and an atheist to door knockers

    Jw's have their own do not call register, if you ask them to add you to it, they will never call to your door again (hurrah!). I have nothing against jw's or any religion, I just really object to my 'space being invaded'...

    OMG this thread jinxed me, I had TWO people come to the door today.

    I really hope the JW comes back, I wrote some notes on his brochure for him! I under lined the bits I disagreed with and wrote in the margins. figure he comes to my house while I'm braless in a singlet & bright pink pj pants to offer me paradise (and a moose? seriously....a moose) I figure that's an invitation for debate

    then an energy guy telling me he wants to see my phone bill to see if I qualified for a reduction on my bill. cheers

    When JW's go to my parents place my stepdad (ex salvo pastor) invites them in and preaches to them (the most hilarious thing I've ever seen) everyone else my mum answers the door holding their car who is the grumpiest thing ever and he (9 times outta 10) hisses at them and they leave
