!#@*ing Beer

Whilst working on a painting job in Palmerston North motels we met an electrician who seemed quite attracted to the crew: At every opportunity he would come across and talk to us. Trouble was he had the habit of swearing and none of us painters did, so it tended to grate a bit.  
One lunchtime we were sitting in a unit when this chap came in and started a conversation, or should I say a monologue, about beer. “I think the !#@*ing price of !#@*ing beer is too !#@*ing dear! I went down to the !#@*ing pub the other !#@*ing night and they !#@*ing charged me .  .  . etc.”
We were all sitting there cringing at the assault on our senses so I silently asked, “How can I get rid of this man?” The answer that came back was, “He wants to feel important, but doesn’t know how to communicate so he is using the only words he knows to fill in the gaps. Inject something good into the conversation.”
So I said to him, “If beer is so dear, why don’t you drink water. It’s clean, it’s cheap and it doesn’t give you a hangover!”
A Miracle! The whole conversation turned around to something positive and we talked as a group for the whole lunch time. He became the centre of attention and didn’t utter another swear-word the whole time!

About reverendjiam

Namaste I am a master metaphysician , an artist and a lover of life and people. I was given a new organisation - the Wholistic Peace and Prosperity Network - in an epiphany in 1992. I have spent all the time since then struggling to get it started. It was started three years ago and now has 3 members. This year will see us expand to 100 members and then we'll be launched! in the future it will spread world wide and even to our colonies in space! Since writing this I have been promoted to the level of Peacemaker. Apparently there are only seven in this class in the world at the moment. I was promoted when Nelson Mandela died and am amongst greats like John Lennon, Gandhi and The Dalai Lama. Each of us have our own particular task. Mine is to teach Peace (the state of Poor) and Prosperity (the state of Abundance), to lift people up above the negative material state into a state of heavenly BEingness, called Wealth. J'iam
