People You Shouldn't Witness To - Really


I learned a valuable lesson yesterday. There are some people you shouldn't approach to hand a gospel tract. Even if you think you have a good idea for how to approach them.

You see, after my Dr.'s appointment I had to go to the pharmacy that is inside a local grocery store. As I walked out there was an armored car and two guards there unloading cash from the back. This is when I got this "oh so" bright idea as to how I could give them a million dollar bill tract.

As I exited the store, I started walking towards the truck. My first clue should have been the guards reaction...they stopped in their tracks (not tracts) as I approached the open truck filled with money. They just stared at me. Then, I reached into the inside pocket of my jacket (another bad idea) and they changed their posture again. I then proceeded to take out a million dollar bill and said, "Here, I think you dropped one of these." Clever, right? No...not at all.

"No I didn't, now get out of here." He replied. Whoops. My bad.

WOW...at least you tried!

Well, look at the bright side - you didn't get shot. LOL

Is that an actual pic of the person you approached? Yeah, sometimes our eagerness can get in the way of our common sense. At least a valuable lesson was learned by you and by us from your experience. I wonder if their hearts were racing when you stuck your hand in your pocket as you approached them.

You should have asked them where they thought they would have gone IF you did have a gun! On second thought maybe not.

Nope, that is is just a random pic I found on the web of a security guard. The guy I approached was a little dude. But he did have a pretty big gun.

Matt, I'm just glad that they don't make 9mm gospel tracts or I would have been in trouble.

:) That is classic! Well done for giving it a go! Glad you didn't get pepper sprayed! Someone should mention that to Ray for the next season of WOTM...

Oh, my word... that is just too funny! Cracked me up!

Good thing they didn't wrestle you down, hog tie you and have you arrested ... so, um ... you would have their undivided attention so you could witness to them???

OMGSH -- I never thought like Jennifer did! Cheese and crackers... good thing is RIGHT!!!
