I was at church a couple of weeks ago and heard one of the dumbest things I've ever heard in my life in the women's bathroom.
Lady: I've been really blessed... I have a couple of job interviews coming up... I just feel like one of these are going to work out... I've turned down three job offers since I was laid off because they interfered with my church schedule.
*record scratch** ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Pump yo brakes, old lady. What kind of church schedule do you keep? Most churches have an early morning service, a mid-day service and an afternoon and/or evening service. You mean to tell me you couldn't pick a service that fits your schedule or God forbid, go to another church that offers a service that fits into your schedule, so you can take a job offer. Are there no Saturday services anywhere? A Wednesday night prayer meeting or something, so you can get your praise on AND go to work.
Look, I'm all about keeping commitments, but God didn't call Christians to be dummies. If he's throwing jobs in your lap TAKE THEM!!!
Christians, am I wrong? Blasphemous? How would YOU respond if someone said this to you?
Oh, and this FURTHER lets me know that the unemployment insurance in Illinois is too lenient. I've heard this before, but apparently it's so lovely that people turn down jobs to get it. (Clearly I'm assuming she gets unemployment when she could have gotten a nice severance package and/or saved up really well to cover her expenses in the event of an emergency.)
