I had my first encounter with some of those, uh, door-to-door religion salesmen yesterday. It wasn’t pleasant because they made me angry but I managed to keep my cool and didn’t slam the door on them.
First mistake, they were insulting my intelligence by talking to me like I was an idiot *and* in an insulting tone to boot.
Second mistake, they just assumed that I was unhappy. “This will totally bring happiness into your life,” one of them said. I’ve come a long way to be this happy and they had the balls to just assume that I was unhappy, just because I didn’t believe in what they did? How dare they? They didn’t even look like a bunch of happy people to start with. I mean, if you’re trying to sell perfume, you should at least try to smell good.
I ended up being cranky all evening. Troy kept telling me that they were not worth it but they really pissed me off. Anyway, here’s some snippets from the encounter:
+ I’m sorry, I’m not into religion.
– What? You don’t believe in Jesus?
+ I believe in good people.
– This will totally bring happiness into your life.
+ I’m already happy. Thanks. *[close the door]*
They’d better be not coming back.
