This CO turned to me and said,"what's more important, sleep or Jehovahs word.He banged on the door like the police.
Ooh that brings back some seriously cringe worthy memories from my pioneer days! I can remember working with a CO who would bang hard on every door, and if he knew they were in, he wouldn't give up. He would look for another means of access, even getting into their back yards while they were sunbathing !! One poor woman was dozing on a lounger wearing nothing but a skimpy bikini and woke up to find two bible punching wierdos standing over her. She was absolutely terrified! The fact he was trespassing didn't bother him in the slightest, as "Jehovah's word" was far more important.How we didn't end up in a police cell is a mystery!!
Personally, I was always mindful of night workers and sleeping babies, so always knocked quietly and never more than once.
