there is a homemaking type board that I visit and some of the ladies there were complaining about JWs that just keep coming back. being nice, they had accepted the mags and then threw them in the trash. One ladies noticed that the same JW showed up every few weeks with a different person and gave her the new magazines. She noticed that no other house on her block was visited, and thus felt targeted by JWs. She found their continual return to be annoying.
I explained to her the system they have of covering an area, then returning again and again to the ones who accepted magazines or books. It's better to say no and not take anything, or better yet tell them to place your house on a do not call list. Call the local KH and request that your home be placed on a do not call list.
I find this humorous, while the Society counts all these magazines as placements, how many are taken by polite people and then tossed in the trash?
