A tip to some of you Jehovah's Witnesses who probably aren't reading this blog anyhow. Well, I guess this can serve as a reminder for anyone trying to make a one-on-one pitch for anything.
That is, even if you're a nice man who speaks well for your cause, try to control the inadvertent spitting during the presentation. Even if it happens only two or three times during the course of five minutes, it might really turn off an already skeptical audience that might not be as patient as I am.
Because, even if you carried yourself well, and didn't succumb to stereotypical or annoying proselytizing, it's the spitting that the person will probably remember most. Or maybe it's just me.
Oh, and try to get your weirdly silent friend in on the act, too. It would probably create more trust and result in a more favourable impression as well.
