Oh, I need an ear. I just got home from a trip on a plane. Behind me was a loud Mormon espousing... nay, proselytizing, to the nice lady next to him, who apparently was Baptist... Ohhh, my head hurts after nearly 2 hours listening to him talk about what he believes, Joseph Smith (the prophet), tithing, on and on. Being on a plane there was nothing to be done. I had forgotten my headphones. I will never make that mistake again.

You should have asked him about his special underwear!

Or how "Jack" he is... ?

Omg, i forgot about those

@Proto I didn't. <vomit emoji here>

@SACatWalker Mormons wear special underwear to keep them holy. Google it, worth the laugh.

@SACatWalker "Temple Garment"

@SACatWalker, @HippieChick58

@SACatWalker Just remember that Mormons are special children of god.

@HippieChick58 Apparently the magic underwear does the opposite from making them holy, to make them more horny and crave polygamy. I think the Bible says something like, "Be fruitcaky and multiply." or something like that.

@SACatWalker And yes, it does. They are prepared for disruption of the normal supply chain, they are supposed to have at least 6 months supplies in their homes at all times.

Nearly spilt me tea ! Please put a health warning up before posting piccies like that!!

When he was on about the tithing you could have asked him about the Mormon girls pornography channel and how much do they contribute.

ahahahahahahahaha

I face a similar conundrum when I get stuck in a car with my mom. She always ends up spewing whatever she's recently learned at church at my sister (who is also atheist) and I.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. ?

And also with you. LOL

If he was loud, the stewardess can ask him to tone it down. Or, you could have bought the lady a drink and have one yourself.

Yeah, I always have ear plugs in my purse for that situation or noisy kids. Although it doesn’t help with them kicking the back of your seat...sigh.

Iffy Level 5 May 7, 2018

I turn around yell OUCH when they kick my seat. Or I will ring for the flight attendant.

My sympathies! Flying is bad enough but to have some pompus prophet shove his fantasy down your throat is crazy. I wish people would mind their own business on planes...unless you want to discuss the weather...or bemoaning the experience of lining up like cattle for the slaughter. Here in Royalton VT (birthplace of Joseph Smith) we have been fighting a take over of a 1% who wants to create several 'communities', gated, for LDS people only... Wanna read a sad story about the Mormans - history and a murder - "Under the Banner of Heaven". I bet that guy doesn't know his LDS History.

Most Mormons don’t know lds history- they only know the whitewashed version.

Next time you meet an overly zealous Mormon ask them about Joseph smith and how many wives he had. When they tell you he only married women who needed help ask them why he married 14 year olds.

Where should I send the ear plugs

Kahuna Level 6 May 7, 2018

I try to NEVER leave my house w/o them and they are the REAL WAX ONES for swimming!

@LetzGetReal Those are the ones I use

@Kahuna Great minds, some of us EVEN swim UNDER the water, too smile009.gif

Couldn’t you have just leaned over and politely told him to shut the fuck up or speak quietly ?

A good reminder to take noise canceling headphones on plane trips.

ebdb Level 7 May 6, 2018

My point above was that I had forgotten them and will never do so again. LOL

That is one of the reasons l don't fly anymore.
I like to choose my traveling companions.

I bought an old mini van. Lol

Buddha Level 7 May 6, 2018

What lol? I'VE been driving my 84 Toyota minivan for 8 years now. I paid 300$ for it from my ex landlady who had to return to China. It had been sitting in her garage for 7 years. I get 31 mpg, it can carry my 4 grandkids, I've taken it hunting and had several deer and an elk in it. It's called the SKITTLEVAN. JAPANESE made an excellent vehicle back then.I was excellent back then. I'm recently turned 70 and I'm in my motherfuckn prime.

Joseph Smith. Sounds like 2 hours of entertainment to me.

Proto Level 6 May 6, 2018

Nope. Painful. Truly.

Hmmm, Do they server Margarita's or Jack on the plane. Outside of sneezing out bullshit. Unless you want to be drawn in a mind numbing conversation, take 2 Jacks, close your eyes and try to block them out.

This has happened to me before. It drives me crazy too! Words like "So?" and "How do you know?" and "Sorry, I don't believe in magical thinking" come to mind. Noise canceling headphones sound like a great idea!
