I couldn't bleedin' well resist it. There were these 2 jobo blokes standing behind a Jobot trolley. The dublications were in Russian.
So I sidled over and asked, 'that Russian then?'
Jobo with a smile, 'Yes.'
ME, 'You Russians then?'
Smiling Jobo, 'No. We're Lithuanians.'
Me, 'why the Russian stuff?'
Jobo, 'there are lots of Russians that we're reaching out to.'
Me, 'Russians? 'Ere? Bleedin' 'ell, I ain't seen none, mate. Boston maybe, but not here.'
Then we had a friendly chat about this and that. I avoided religion at all costs, I just wanted to be friendly.
Then religion got mentioned. I said, "I'm a Nihilist,"
Jobo, 'What's that?'
I explained about the futility of life et al. But I'm good with it. Don't need an imaginary friend in the sky.
I see the futility of life. We are just a virus on the planet. In a million years from now, when the sun explodes and destroys this section of the universe, aliens, in their flying saucers, will look out and say, 'no. there weren't nothing here.' "
Jobo, 'but god........'
Me, 'Come on, mate. There ain't no god and the bible is a load of old rubbish written by blokes, not god.'
Jobo, deer in the headlights look. I changed the subject to something more appropriate....CAKE!!
I have to say, they were lovely blokes. I told them they were deluded but I don't care. Everything is futile. Better make the most of it and make our short life happy without American religion like the JW. org.
We left on very good terms. I feel sorry for them because I was deluded by that stupid god sh1t once and they're wasting their lives.
No way am I going to embarrass myself by confronting them with ARC and all that stuff. Life's too short. We're all gonna die so who cares? Well, I do a bit. There's nothing after we die, so all this political, religious tribal schtick is a monumental waste of time.
I still haven't had any cake yet. (Had chocolate, not cake).
