It was a weekday when there are usually many antis that come to harass clients. This day was no exception. The client had pulled into the public parking lot across the street about 30 minutes before the door opened.
When we went to talk to her, I explained the orange vests and let the client know there would be antis who would approach the car and try to talk or hand her literature.
Sure enough, there were 4 antis that spent the morning camped out in the lot. Every time I walked to the lot, I was greeted with, “Good morning,” from the antis. They were greeted with silence from me. I was thinking, “No, it would be a good morning if you were not here.”
The clinic opened and I walked the client to the door. As we were walking the client said, “You told me they would come to my car, but I didn’t expect them to keep coming. They tried to talk to me several times.” I replied, “Yes, they don’t understand the word no. They don’t give up.” We went on to talk about other things as we walked to the clinic door.
The meaning of “No” seems to be the hardest word to explain to the antis.
