Those new doorbell thingies & jw's

    I didn't know if I should put this in humor or what?

    Have you seen those new doorbell devices with built-in camera/microphone/speaker? I wonder how that will work with jw's coming to the door?

    Will they know they are being recorded? I find it kind of humorous thinking of it because years ago some came to my door but I didn't answer (just out of the shower) but was right next to door and could hear their conversation. Went something like this, "jw 1- should we keep knocking? jw2- no, but lets count it anyway..." and on and on they went. At the time I had no idea what 'counting' meant. Guess my jw would believe me had I had it recorded like the new doorbells can do!

    If the homeowner says through the microphone "put me on the do not call list' will a jw accept that without actually seeing the person?

    I could think all sorts of humorous scenarios with jw's and the new devices.

    These are on YouTube already, that's why they showed that video at all congregations warning JWs not to talk too much at doors because of cameras 😄

    I have to think this SNL clip was based loosely on JWs:

    Bible Salesmen

    I remember going D2D in the inner city of Melbourne, australia. The whole morning was spent talking through intercoms, as most of the apartments were locked off to the public. I was thinking how wonderful this was as it saved having to have direct contact. This was so different to the area that I had come from e.g semi rural.

    They have already shown videos at the hall about that saying not to talk about personal matters at the door due to the new doorbells.

    "not to talk about personal matters at the door"

    I can't see that being remembered or obeyed. I mean, what else can they do? They go h to h for an hour or more with a sheet of persistent " not homes" . Of course they are still not at home. Do they keep silent? Human nature being what it is, conversation flows between them .

    Cest la vie....
