Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

We live near 14th and T, and we had a strange solicitation Monday night that was a bit disconcerting. Shortly after 11pm, a woman rang our doorbell. When we asked who it was, the woman said, “I’d like to say a prayer for your business.” We said, “We’re not interested,” and she left. Immediately afterwards, I heard a car speed off, though that could be coincidental. My husband went outside to see if she’d left anything or if she was knocking on a neighbor’s door, but she was gone.

Obviously, our home is in no way related to a place of business, so this is perplexing. We are wondering whether anyone else has encountered this woman, and if so, has there been any follow up incident? We can’t make heads or tails of it, and we are wondering whether to be concerned in any way.”
