Watch Tower

Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for – a story to top my wildly popular Door-to-door ADT sales post.

As I pulled on to my road I could see taillights in my driveway.  Very strange. I muted the lecture I was listening to, Tools of Thinking by Professor James Hall, and slowed down.  I pulled in and stepped out of my car.  An older lady with what I think was an Eastern European accent stepped out of the passenger side with a couple of books in her hand.

Oh, this should be fun.

“Hello. You are living here?”


“I would like to talk to you about the Watch Tower.”

“We’re atheists.”

“Oh, okay.  I put something on your door. You can throw away.  Thank you.”

Wait just a minute.  What just happened?  That’s it?  Is she just a bored lady looking for conversations with people who already agree with her?  What about my eternal soul?

  1. You must have felt totally ripped off! You didn’t even get to have a short logic debate with her. It’s probably for the best, though…you have enough to do today without making grandmothers cry.
