Today I was in the ER and this guy with a really gross eye infection say down next to me. I made up some stupid crap about how he should find God but he wouldn't take the hint and sit somewhere else, even after 4 hours. FML.

I thought it was a very sensible question. If it were me, and if he wasn't a big scary biker man, I would have asked whether Jesus could have bumped me up the queue if I converted. I've found that the best way to deal with attempted conversions is to debate with the converter over the higher points of their theocratic tendencies until they inadvertently admit to being hypocrites.
