Street preacher

There's a street preacher I frequently see in the morning at 2nd and Union. Occasionally I will see him at other locations downtown as well. He's short, black, got a thick beard, a penchant for hats with ear flaps, and he speaks with a foreign accent. He's offered me tracts a few times. I turn him down. He walks on.

Today I saw him by Benaroya on 3rd as I was going home. He offered a tract to someone who turned him down and then followed him, yelling at him "I'll show you who's saved you mother fucker!" Was in his face for approximately 15 minutes. Shoving him. Pushing him. Knocking his tracts to the ground. Each time he would bend over pick them all up again and go on offering tracts to other people. Eventually, the cops showed up and my bus arrived. I don't know what happened then.

Pisses me off.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
