The Hobo and the Jehovah Witness

Andy G (Gadget),


The enemy of good advice is love and respect.

"Don't believe your friends when they ask you to be honest with them. All they really want is to be maintained in the good opinion they have of themselves."
- Albert Camus



The voice of the good people can be weeded out of the angry comments. Sometimes it is impossible to find an honest voice in sea of sweet talking people who do not want to offend.

My Two Daily Questions

1. What shall I do today?
I am fortunate, 99 percent of my day is open, and I have nothing on the schedule.

2. How do I find friend today?



Hobo Annoying People
Here is a little story….

Suppose a Hobo gets off the train, wanders around your home town, then for some strange reason walk up to your back door and ask,
"Will you give me some food?"

Suppose for some reason a Jehovah Witness walks up to your door and says,
"Have you found God?"

I am guessing, but about 50 percent of the people are going to be rude, be abrupt, and disrespectful, saying.
"No, why are you bothering me?"

The Hobo and the Jehovah Witness see each other on the same path; they both are experiencing overwhelming rejection.

The Hobo says to the Jehovah Witness,
"These people are angry."

The Jehovah Witness says,
"I would rather listen to an angry person telling me the truth, then a happy person lying to me."

Good friendships starts with an honest statement, coupled with benevolent intentions. However, if the persons intentions are bad, I still want to hear the honest opinions. When a person twist honest sentences into lies, then couples it with bad intentions, we know we are talking with the devil.

Is God Lost?
Generally, when a person ask me,
"Have you found God?"
I say,
"I did not know he was lost."
"I am ok, are you looking for him?"

When people ask me if I have 'found God' I tend to say 'Whenever I lose things, they tend to be down the back of the sofa. Have you looked there? perhaps you will find him.'

"Happy" people lie to me all the time, especially if they want a favor, I will do a deserving person a small favor if I am able to, however obtaining people full time jobs and USA visas are well beyond what I am able to do for a person.

Here in El Salvador many folks are very "religious" with a lot of young charismatic pastors, many of the newer evangelical churches provide many people with guidance, family values, faith and some morals. I know well dressed young man carrying a Bible is not going to try and take my money or valuables by force. I never talk "religion" with anyone, since I am not "religious" and therefore not qualified, I follow my own spiritual path and when I meet another spiritual person trveling their own journey, he or she and I are usually able to communicate beyond just pleasantries.

'Politically Correct' just for sake of being smart ---- and being PC is being real dumb in my opinion. Some of my best native friends have opinions and experiences 180 degrees away from mine..why we get along I guess.

If we all marched in lockstep...scary world huh??????

Good Quote by Camus and SO TRUE. It might sound weird but the fact that 99 of each person's day when they wake up could be created instead of constantly scheduled SCARES the HELL out of maybe 90 of the human race who find such FREEDOM too agonizingly stressful. My natural inclination is to reach out and help people who need general advice, directions to where they're going or acting with manners like Henry Miller said, "YES" was his favorite word in the dictionary. Of course I have learned from experience that my natural tendency to help others does NOT include supplying them with money.
