The Mormons are notorious for returning, even after you’ve asked them not to. I suppose it must work for their purposes at least sometimes.

I used to be really rude to them (and the Witnesses…) because we got them all the time and they were so frustrating and condescending, and to be honest, it was kind of fun to mess with them (sorry to the Mormons on the bee). I’ve just started very firmly and politely saying “Thank you, but I’m not interested in hearing anymore about this. Please don’t come back.” That’s when I’ve made the mistake of opening the door to them…

I think the best thing to do is make sure your FI is home and you both answer the door and tell them you are not interested. I am not comfortable with them coming by and you are home alone who is to say a Mormon cant have a crush.

@kittyface:  Oh that’s the worst! I dont’ understand why someone coming to YOUR HOUSE would choose to be condescending and rude to you. What’s stopping anyone from slamming the door in their faces? I’ve had too many people act the same way to me, and it didn’t make me interested in their religion whatsoever.

We had a JW stalker (no offense to  any bees meant} She would show up while I was cooking dinner 3-4 times a week and would stay for hours which of course meant according to southern hospitality that we had to invite her and her daughter to dine with us. We tried everything to discourage her: told her outright not interested, didn’t answer doorbell so she would beat on kitchen window for 20 minutes, got a viscious dog, tried  to convert her to our religion, you name it. Finally my brother got up the balls to come down the stairs in an alligator thong (you know where the tongue was his *} that isn’t a sight I ever want to see again but it did get rid of her. Find out a way to really offend them and they will leave you alone sometimes it is that or a restraining order : (

I’m a Mormon, so you can go ahead and take my word that I’m pretty sure they were juts trying to be friendly.

Something really crucial to remember, that most people don’t… People think they’re have all these ulterior motives, but they’re really just 20-year-old kids miles away from home! They’re a little scared and a little naive, and just trying their best to make a difference in the world.

I’m positive they meant no harm.

@FutureMuniz:  Wouldn’t it just be easier to tell them you’re Jewish so they stop coming?

Oh, another thing – it’s extremely unlikely that the missionaries that came to your door tonight were the same missionaries from 8 months ago. They transfer areas a lot. I’m not 100% sure how they organize everything, but I suspect that one of the reasons they go to the same houses over and over is that they didn’t know that the last missioanries already stopped by. Although they do try to “never give up” on people in case they change their mind.

I can never bring myself to be mean to them. “Bless you guys! But I’m busy right now with the kids and the pets. I’m sure bubi would be upset to not greet your herself, but have a great day and be safe.”

Tends to get the point across I’m not christian. Though I’m not jewish either. But that little white lie wont hurt them.

Wow. I don’t think you have stalkers, I think they are doing what they think is right. I’m not religious at all and I’m completely not interested in converting to anything, but I’m pleasant to anyone who comes to the door, ask how their day way, and if it’s super hot I offer them water (but I don’t let them come inside- they are strangers after all!)

I really don’t think you need to say anything other than “I’m really not interested in Mormonism so you don’t have to come back again, but I hope you have a nice day.” End scene.
