God thinks I should apply for a new job, and I would have to agree

You get all types when you are waiting tables (I could rant for pages and pages) but the bible-bumpers are the best. One of them surprised me a little yesterday. As I was picking up the check he said to me,

“I have this strong feeling from God that you should apply to that new job you have thinking about applying for. Is that something that has been on your mind.”

Surprisingly, I said, “Yes.” Then he went into a speech about faith and the bible, blah, blah, blah. I guess I better get cracking on my resume – Buddha says so.

Maybe it was his polite way of telling you that it didn’t seem like you were paying complete attention to your current gig.

How about web design and sales?

Stop Home Rule USA (a nonprofit based in DC) needs someone.

The Government is on a hiring tear…they could use a happy-go-lucky chap like you at the IRS. Just sayin’

Fortune tellers use the same con game as well. Check your wallet!

I leave my wallet at home when I work.

He had on a snazzy western shirt.

As a Christian, I’m sorry for his offensive approach. I believe Christians are called to witness; but we also need to be tactful and not pushy.

I don’t think he was pushy at all. I was brought up Christian and I believe the teachings of Jesus Christ are correct; forgiveness and peace. But you don’t have to be a Christian to realize war is stupid.
