Awake/Watchtower...and MISSED opportunity!
No more than 15 minutes ago we got a knock on our locked office door.
I answered it and 2 nicely dressed guys stated they were 'handing out literature for local businesses on issues that concern them'. Well, being that i am normally spread thin running this place i took the literature that was a copy of Awake, i shook his hand and closed the door.

Never heard of 'Awake' before, but i know what the watchtower is......

Well, inside the Awake mag, was The Watchtower. BY the time i realized my missed opportunity, it was too late, they had moved on. I debated weather to run them down in the parking lot and invite them in, but that prospect had me feel a bit slimy..as it would be an Atheist pouncing on his prey. So here i sit with 2 nifty magazines and a feeling of total anger at my self for this missed opportunity.

DAMN DAMN DAMN!

I was gonna start with the Birthday thing too! Just to break the ice.

DAMN!!

If i had seen the watchtower first, my instincts would have kicked in. But we get so much salesmen traffic that it did not sink in and i generally try and rush them off (normally Aflack Insurance or Cleaning/Lawn service sales goons).

Just had to rant, do you Hellbound White Soulless Apes forgive me for missing this opportunity?

That's pretty second rate. Telling lies to further Christ's message? How would saving someone's soul concern a business enterprise?

Its a rouge to get in the door to save my soul, which i suppose is FAR more important than this temporary body in this temporary job in this temporary world.

But yeah, i agree. Pretty low.
I was not gonna hit them with that, but rather go after the doctrine directly. They'd be looking for a way out, as i own this place and can take as LOOOONG as i want to discuss such things.

I wish they'd come back, or a second wave would come through.....

NO!

There can be no forgiveness without repentance. Repent you heathen! For you have forsaken the truth! Now you must eat a baby in your sorrow to show that you've turned from your wretched ways. After your repentance you must arise and pounce upon the infidels as though they are lambs to be sheered. Corral them into the pens of logical thought from which they cannot escape! Assault them with reason until they are tame! Bring forth the holy facts found in reality and witness the terror upon their faces! They cannot escape!

GO! NOW!

*sigh*

I guess. It just doesn't seem as epic. Maybe you could at least draw the Darwin fish eating a Jesus fish with the feces? That'll show 'em. Undecided

I'd say sharpen your fangs; if they give out literature, I think they're supposed to be back to do a follow up. They want to get their foot in the door at some point. Once in, they'll try to come back again. At least that's what I've heard from more experienced friends.
They'll first ask if you have any questions about the literature they gave you. They'll ask you to explain what you read, then they'll tell you what it's really about - what you should know, and why it's important.

Then, they'll ask if they can come back... at least they're polite vampires. Cool

Darwin fish? Jesus fish?
Kinda old fashioned... how bout...

I never miss the opportunity to accept their pamphlets and recycle them immediately. I'm not only wasting their poorly spent resources, while protecting other hairless apes from damaging memes, but I'm actually doing my part for the environment too.

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it. (Chas)

I would never shake a baby unless the recipe requires it.
