I love Jesus....

but I am still not doing business with you.. you politely...
that is how I feel everytime some one tells me they are a christian while we are talking business....I would believe them more if their business proceedures told me they were christian... but most of the time the only feeling i get is that i am talking to a con....a fish in the window only makes me want to put a rock thru it...
I am begining to think that for anyone to be a deacon in some church they have to have committed felonies in front of the congregation...
why not just keep your religion to yourself and let your product, services and price do your selling for you...

There must be a story behind this rant.
Unfortunately, I agree. Every time someone in business starts telling me they're a Christian, I put my hand over my wallet and keep it there. They seem to think it's a license to rip you off. (ok, maybe I'm generalizing......a little)

Yeah, when someone goes out of their way to tell me they are Christian I have learned to watch out. I had an old boss that said that and did the whole Christian radio thing at work but his actions spoke volumes about the real him in a bad way.


I need to buy you a lakewood tshirt Obed to restore your faith.

When I told my boss my wife was pregnant (19 years ago) he said, "Now that you've started a family, have you and your wife found a church to attend"?
I said, "Yeah we have"
His face brightened and he smiled and asked, "Which church are you going to join"?
I told him, "the First Church of the Poisoned Mind".



He never liked me much after that...

I have a sweetheart of an idiot sister in law that goes there...and a few other folks I know... and now that I think about it, they all have one thing in common, they are just plain space cadets....but that is another story altogether...
I have no problem with a business man/woman who happens to be a christian... but to ALL christian business people.... YOU AGAIN...

I got a flyer on my door for lawn service, The flyer said "Smile Loves You: and some other non grass-mowing bible hoopla. So the wife called and said come out and mow just not between 12-2 because the kid is sleeping. They say OK. Guess when they showed up? 1:00. She tells them no, dont mow. Then she calls said company, and the guy was a douchebag. So I called the doucher and told him hes a moron, and the Christian thing was horseshit.
