    Many of the responses to this letter seem to discuss the very least
    one should offer uninvited guests whom one has welcomed into the home.

    If the uninvited guests are also unwelcome, one can avoid inviting
    them into the home, perhaps by claiming a prior engagement for which
    you are just about ready to leave.
    But if you choose to invite them in, you are then obligated to be
    hospitable and to offer them something more than a glass of water,
    assuming you have something appropriate on hand.

    But if they are both uninvited AND unwelcome, don't invite them in!

    I've done that!

    I like the way you think, Felice! My neighbor and I are friendly. But we
    both know not to just show up at each other's door without calling first. I
    don't want to feel obligated when someone knocks on the door unexpectedly.
    The "letter" wasn't clear on whether or not they were expected guests. If
    they were expected the should have at least been given a glass of water.
    Food? Only if they were invited over to eat.

    Well, that's just common sense. When I see it's those door to door
    bible toting hustlers I don't answer my door bell.

    Well, that's fine for you, they're usually young guys. The size of
    your boobs would probably traumatize them. I should put on black
    slacks, a white shirt, and tote a bible door to door, I can use some
    good old god fearing traumatizing to straighten me out. Hmm, I think
    I'm getting some of that old time religion right now! LOL

    I did just that once! A pair of Jehovah Witnesses women somehow found their
    way into my Oakland, CA apartment building.

    I got out of bed, stark naked and opened the door and stared at them.

    They stepped back a moment, then went into their religious sales pitch as I
    stood there. In my so many words they quickly got the message that I wasn't
    interested in religion at that exact moment and they moved on down the
    hall. LOL!!!

    I'm soooo fortunate I live in a gated community. There are no bible
    thumpers coming to my door. When I was a teenager in Memphis we lived
    across the street from the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. People were
    riding up on bicycles (like the Mormons) knocking on the door. Go away! I
    finally found the answer to the question "Have you found Jesus?" "Sorry, I
    didn't know he was lost." Keep these people away from me. Religious
    freaks, brainwashing the masses.
