I think most people give up being polite when there are multiple return trips. I get out of the problem entirely because I just don't answer the door for them, or for anyone who isn't invited. If it was anyone important, they'd know to phone first.
henchwench82: Well, it's a cheap way to see the world, so maybe not THAT nuts. I think their churches fund the whole thing. Not saying that's their only intention, mind you. I'm sure they're also trying very hard to save your soul, provided your lawn ornamentation isn't overly intimidating ^_^
Soccorro: I think they are being pressured to "save" people the same way the doorstep brigade is pressured to sell stuff. So i don't think they get to see much in the countries they visit. One of them held the door when i were about to close it and tried to convince me of allowing him inside. then he tried to force his card into my apartment. It's hard to fight those guys off AND remain polite. How do you do that when they show up every 2 days!? I'd go nuts!
