  • OK I have a funny one for ya

    OK I have a funny one for ya
    I had a service call last night, "Tree Roots"
    it was for an elderly lady I'm guessing around 70's
    She preached and tried to convert me to become a Mormon.
    it was a long hour and a half.
    I am religious, but not Mormon

    has this happed to u ?

      I did a lot of hitchhiking when I was a kid and I ran into quite a few then.
      I find other religions interesting so as a topic of discussion it wasn't too bad, plus I was getting a free ride.

      I have a lot of customers try to start political discussions. That can be a real touchy subject so I try to keep my mouth shut.

        religon / politics + clients = tentative situation at best. times like this it's easier to become asian and nod and smile a lot.

            No one has tried to convert me...I do go to church on Sunday. My biggest laugh is when I tell a customer I can come after church, and they cry out, "it figures, the only plumber who will call back, cant come right now due to church!" What are all the others doing this morning???

              When I do work for the local Mormon church here, they talk to me a lot about going to the church. But not in a nagging way like some people would. I have a lot of customers give me fliers and pamphlets about whatever church it is they go to. Most of them don't bother me, I just smile and nod. The only person that got on my nerves I call 'Ron the suicidal Christian pool player'. One day when I have more time I'll tell that story.

                Convert you? into what exactly?

                It must be obvious to them that you are a heathen living a hedonistic lifestyle and there is no hope for eternal salvation

                For those of you who haven't figured it out yet. The church is a GREAT place to get work

                    i do alot of churches,and never had one try to convert me. but on one house call it was like five nuns living together. after i finished the job, they were so happy. they started praying for me. kinda freaked me out. but they were really sweet old ladies and to this day they still call me when they have the littlest problem with they're lines. so i guess a little religion in our lives is good for business.

                        Over the years, I've worked for the Mormon Church a number of times. They've never tried to convert me, but then, maybe they assumed I already was Mormon. None of the churches I've worked for have ever tried to preach to me, though the Witnesses and the Mormon Missionaries occasionally stumble to my door by mistake . . .

                          yes ive been saved several times by cusomers when i was younger, now i say lets just stick with your plumbing problem, as ive gotten older and sum, what wiser [ and that is debatable] two things i will not discuss ever with a customer is religion and politics.

                            Never had a customer try to convert me but I have them, aint that what a christians supose to do. They lady was just doing he job for CHRIST, even though I don't think the mormons are my cup of tea, I belive in the Holy Bible and nothing else. You christians should do your duty when the spirite prompts you, I do most of the time. Just think all the people who are going to burn in an a sulfuric acid burning sensation without remedy,Eternally. Thats all life is, a conditioning process for HEAVEN( paridise) or Hell. Everything else is meaningless. ......................................
