    It is hard to make someone else feel understood when you do not really understand them, and want to insist that your own perspective is "the best" or "the only truth".

    I hate those door to door "buy my faith for a low low price people" They need to learn that if they aren't pushing thin mints, they don't need to touch my door.

    Well-intended in their minds or not, the door-to-door peddling is extremely invasive, and, completely unnecessary in this age. Some may argue that the face-to-face interaction in the present moment has merit, but showing up to most people's homes uninvited to impose your beliefs upon them will usually end with someone yessing you to death and closing the door with a sigh of relief. Or being told that you'll be charged with harassment/trespassing if you show up again.

    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.

    I would be far more tolerant of these folks and their right to go door-to-door if they would simply take "no" for an answer and move on to the next prospect.

    Yeah, it's the repeat visits and the persistence often demonstrated upon that first visit. Those tense moments on the porch when you just want to shut the door and move along with your life.
