I am ...well...I go by nubbinz on the internet a lot.
Because I have one arm. So this is important to the story.
I work at an rv dealership. It's not bad, there are a few instances of NATS, and I don't have to handle crusties. So it is my coworkers that stump me. Particularly Superjesusman or SJ for short. I have no problems with people believing in religion it is the extremes he takes that weird me out.
I took this job because talking to people makes me uncomfortable. So when SJ first meets me he is AUTOMATICALLY MY BESTEST FRIEND EVAR! Because he is missing a finger so he understands me. Yeah. I know.
He goes on a rather long kick discussing how he understands and how he will pray for me and if I pray too Jesus will show up in my room and will regrow my arm and how glorious the day will be when I'm healed. I've never had my arm as I lost it as a tiny child so really I wouldn't know what to do with one if I had it.
He has cornered me several times since then to specifically talk about faith and I'm tired of it. I respect he has his opinions but the very idea that I'm "broken" and need "healed" is kind of insulting. I am what I am and maybe I was put here to help those who are in the same situation as I am but got there through less gentler means adapt.
I've tried telling him I'm fine and happy but he won't listen he still insists he will pray for me.
Can anyone else think of a way to tell him without getting into an argument over his faith or the fact I think he's freaking ridiculous?
Because I can't spend all day hiding on the lot anymore.
