One time I was in field service, and my buddy and I came to a door. The screen door was closed, but the main door was open so you could see inside the house. My partner rung the bell. On the floor was this beautiful rug. I was examining the design of it, all the while keeping alert so that when the householder came he didn't catch me peering in his house. But then I noticed something else while following the patter on the rug. This huge sword up against the wall. The kind of curved sword you'd see in Lawrence of Arabia. Then this Middle Eastern man came to the door. He had a turban on, was sweating profusely from working out. Very dark skinned with red eyes and solidly built. His eyes were intimidating to a degree. He opened the door, and said in somewhat broken english, "You are Christian? Yes? Please leave!" We got the heck outta there.
Another time out, I went through a presentation with a young dude who I had awaken. I apologized to him, and offered to come back at a better time. He goes, "that's ok dude. What are you sellin?" All the while he was whiping the sleep out of his eyes and yawning. I went through the presentation, explained a scripture, then asked if he had any questions. He put his hand on his chin, rubbed his goatee, and took a deep breath. So at this point I'm expecting a serious question. I did a quick prayer cuz I felt I was going to need assistance on what he was about to ask. Then he says in a polite manner, half sleep, "I do have a question." I said, "sure, go ahead." He replied in a stoner voice, "do you know what fukkin time it is? I was supposed to pick up my girlfriend from the airport." I looked at my watch, and told him it was about 11:30. He goes, "shit man, she's gonna be pissed." This guy reminded me of Matthew McConaughey from Dazed and Confused.
Another time we were working a neigborhood where there was this nut yelling out at us from his front yard. Yelling and snarling negative things about JWs. Everybody else just passed his house without attempting to engage. Back then I was still doing the double life thing, and if I knew I wouldn't get caught, I would have beat the life out of him. When I got finished talking with the neighbor in the house next to this nut, he yelled out, "All you Jehovahs want is our money!!! Buncha vultures! You Jehovahs!!!" I replied back, "we don't do this for money." He goes, "yes you do! You swindle people out of their money!! You drive nice cars, and have nice homes!!!" I replied back to him, "sir I drive a used Toyota Corrolla." He yells back to me, "that's cause your not doing it right!" I go, "doing what right?" "Swindling people, you're not doing it right!" I just walked away at that point shaking my head.
