When I see missionaries I…
- Pretend I don’t see them
- Confront them (somewhat passively agressively)
- Greet them
I remember running into Latter day Saints all the time (did I spell that right?) and they would always go out of their way to make eye contact with me and invite me to their church. I always declined, but I did once in a while hang out with these two missionaries who were around my age, who were basically pretty normal in a lot of ways.
They were telling my all sorts of crazy stories. How there is “missionary gossip”, how you are not allowed to watch TV, movies, and call girls with your cellphone. THey are also not allowed to talk to a woman that is by herself unless that missionary is accompanied with his partner.
What’s also interesting is that the majority of the missionaries seem to be men. I don’t think I have ever really seen any women out as missionaries actually. And they are always wearing the standard formal clothing. You wonder how they can ever stand the heat and humidity with such clothes on.
