Oy Vey

Knock knock

Me: Who's there?

Guy: David with blah blah cancer information center

Me: (open door just a bit) Can I help you? (puzzled about door to door cancer education program)

Guy: I would love to share with you important information about cancer.

Me: From that 8 inch thick binder?

Guy: Yes ma'am, there's so much people don't know. This information could save your life!

Me: Really (said sarcastically)? Except sir you came here last year and wasted 30 minutes of my life. Come to find out you weren't the cancer information fairy, you are just a loser that uses cancer to sell insurance. You need to get off my front porch.

(Man's eyes grow large. You can see the wheels turning. He goes for another try)

Guy: Cancer is a very dangerous disease. You need to protect yourself. Please let me help you. You will be sorry if you don't educate yourself.

Me: Oh David, trust me I'm up to date on my cancer info. And rest assure I'm protected... and that I'm gonna empty the clip.

(David decided to leave)

How was your day?

You're a little nicer than I am when someone comes to my door. We get 3 or 4 a year ("Wow"' she says), and we didn't start getting those until we had been in the house 5 years.

That was our second cancer scam, but the Jehovah's Witnesses seem dead set on converting us, so they like to visit bi-monthly. Once my husband even told them we were atheists. I believe that's why they come so often!

*note - I do however welcome Girl Scouts and anyone selling World's Finest Chocolate : )

What are your tips for getting ird of the Jehovah's Witnesses because I'm not quite sure they buy it when I smile sweetly and tell them I worship Satan.

We have decided to tell them we are Jewish. Hope it works!
