I’m a pastor’s wife. I break all of the molds. I don’t play piano. I don’t wear dresses and rarely wear skirts. My house is far from pristine. I’m opinionated.
And I’m *not* a very nice person before 8am! That whole “ready in season and out of season” thing does not apply in my life before the second cup of coffee. And when I’m sick and someone rings the doorbell at 7:45 in the morning and waked me up and all 4 of the kids, well it’s enough to make me want to throw someone under the bus!
Can someone explain to me why it’s not ok for a telemarketer to call and try to sell you something before 9am, but it’s perfectly ok for the WATER GUY to ring your doorbell TWICE at 7:45am on the day you sleep in? For that fact, what makes it ok for him to walk over to the house when no one is at the church? I don’t think most offices open before 8am, so why is he even out in his truck that early? If he wants to make a sale, and finds himself at our church on Monday mornings before anyone is there and this happens every single month, wouldn’t you think he’d get a clue and come on another day or a later time? I mean C’MON!!!
I told Chip taht when he calls the water selling people to let them know that if it happens again, he’s going to let his wife answer the door. And that’s not going to be fun for anyone!
