1 While working house-to-house in "suburbia" with my father, a car stops on the street, a guy (late 20s, maybe) gets out and walks up to us. I'm in the middle of my presentation with the "householder" and this guy literally trys to break it up. He mumbles something to the householder about "you don't need to hear this" and takes the magazines I was about to hand to her. I said to him "excuse me, do you live here?" and it turns out he didn't, he was just passing by, saw us, and decided to start a fight with us -- which is only fair, since we were out knocking on people'd doors picking religious fights with them! He then goes on to rant about how is mother was a JW, but when she needed blood, she took it, therefore the religion is a sham. Unfortunately, his illogical did little to convice me
2 While working a slightly more rural section north-east of suburubia, we knocked on a door with many vehicles and Harley-Davidsons outside. Whoever answered the door let us in partway, and immediately called upon someone else to talk to us. In the meantime, is was pretty apparent that this was some sort of biker hangout, with people (bikers & biker chicks) all over the place, mostly still sleeping off the previous nights celebrations.
When the senior guy came to talk to us, he listened to our spiel for about 30 seconds and then said "Take a look around you, man. Look at where you are." To this day I don't know if that was a safety warning or just a futility warning, but I zealously replied that our message is for all people, just as Jesus preached to all sorts of people.
It didn't sink in until after we were back in the car just how bad that could have been.
In summary I would like to add that if a JW comes to your door, don't be mean or dangerous or violent or threatening, you are just reinforcing their persecution complex. Remember, you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar!
