What is it about people giving out religious tracts that seems to require them to be rude? Pretty much none of the other people that accost me as I walk around Seattle are rude. They take "No, thank you" with grace and move on. But folks with religious tracts seem to think that politeness means an easy kill. It seems that I have to be rude and derisive towards them to get them to leave me alone. It's rather annoying.
