Usually when the Jehovah Witnesses stop by (which is usually about once a week!), I usually will say I don’t speak Italian. Normally that works, until the next week. I have nothing against them at all, I just do not have the same beliefs as they do.
Saturday I tried to do the same when a gal from the Communist party stopped by, wanting to know if I’d buy a raffle ticket/donate to the Italian Communist party. Darn, didn’t work, she could speak English. No I did NOT buy or donate any money. I am not going to give any money to a political party I do not participate in. I can’t even vote in this country, not yet anyways.
