I went with my mother to her bank so she could get a safety deposit box, one I was given acccess to as well, so my presence was required. She began to speak to the bank employee about how happy she was to get one so she could keep her jewelry safe. She then pulled out her gold Virgin Mary necklace to show him, because it's very important to her. He exclaimed over how pretty it was, and she said something along the lines of "Everyone in my family is very religious. Well, except for her," and nodded towards me.
Bank dude's interest is piqued and he says "Really? Have you given it a chance? Cos if you do, I promise you'll have the best, most fulfilling life ever." I replied that I had once upon a time been a Christian, but was no longer and hinted that I was not by any means interested, hoping that it would cease the conversation. Sadly, he kept going for about an hour. I can't quote the whole thing from memory, but my mom had mentioned how I had wanted to be a missionary when I was younger but "you need money for such a thing." His reply reminded me of how so many people pray and that makes them feel better about doing nothing: "You know what's better than money? Praying about it." I facepalmed on the inside.
There was also his statement "as soon as you said you didn't believe, Diosito told me to stand up for him, and I am so thankful for the opportunity." I didn't say much because I didn't want to cause a scene, and I was horribly uncomfortable with this man's pushiness. What would you guys have done?
