Fun with Jehovas
I used to be quite friendly with the Jehovas witnesses that knocked on my door, lovely old ladies. But when they started giving my small hardback books instead of the little watchtower newsletter I knew I had to get rid of them and have used the following excuses to deter them:

1. Ask them to wish me, family member, friends or cat a happy birthday.
2. Tell them im too busy to talk as im about to give blood at the Methodist church.
3. Tell them im training to be a phlebotamist (drawer of blood) (this isnt a complete lie btw, im doing nursing training.)

Either they don't like me anymore or they've died. And if they have then hopefully God has explained how silly they've been.

I don't get why the happy birthday thing would put them off...liked the other two though!

birthday thing
the only celebration on the jw's calendar that is allowed by their church is easter - no xmas for them, no birthdays. i think the reasoning is that there is no record of these celebrations being held in the bible and/or they glorify the individual. but jesus held his own party some time over easter (see the last supper), so it's okay for jw's to celebrate easter.
