First, notice the ads at the bottom left of the picture. Three in one afternoon. I don't hate the people who do this to make money - I might have before one of my foreign students told me this was her job -although not at my location.
What I really want to talk about, however, is the circumstances than led me to making the poster middle-right.
Below, you can see it more clearly (click to enlarge).
Some Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door a few weeks ago but were put off by my inability to speak Korean.
Then on May 27th a Korean family of JWs from Yangyang and with at least one English speaker appeared at my door. I didn't talk to them long (although I wasn't rude -bringing children along is a great or cowardly way to avoid anger) but the man said something about knowing me. Yangyang isn't far off and I lived there for two years, so its certainly possible but was it a coincidence that brought him to my door?
Yesterday, June 3, two more JWs knocked on my door. This time there were two women, a native speaker of English and a Korean. I was less polite this time.
Today, Monday June 4th, two more people knocked on my door. They appeared unconnected to the JWs but soon revealed themselves to be missionaries for one faith or another.
I was furious -with myself. First, the poster I'd made was inside the door, waiting for next Sunday, and second, I may have been too specific in making my poster by naming JWs.
I slammed the door in their faces and cursed a few times alone in the apartment.
The next afternoon I'm home, I'll have the sign on the door and pot of water on the table in easy reach!
