The witnesses knocked on my door yesterday. A married couple, 70's probably, and introduced themselves by giving their first names and stating that they were Jehovah's witnesses.
It's 5+ years since we left our old address and moved a few hundred yards away. No-one visited us back then. I was one of those "I'm disfellowshipped, sod off" types, so I guess I was on some sort of blacklist.
After we moved I decided not to confront anymore. My reasoning was that whenever I confronted them about disfellowshipping, I was actually just descending into their world. Worse, I was giving my power away. So I decided to knock it on the head, give no indication of my JW background, and the next time they called I'd politely just say no thank you.
And that's just what I did,more or less. After they told me that they were JW's and offered my some magazines, I just said "Do you mind if I don't"? They seemed suprised. I wondered if they'd known all along that I was an ex and were expecting a different reaction from me. Whatever. I felt good about it, I was still calm, unperturbed and quite happy with our encounter, albeit a brief one.
