Here’s an ethical dilemma for you.
Your phone line (which connects you to the Internet) isn’t working. You call the company and they send out a repairman.
He comes over. You make small talk.
Then at some point, he says:
“You know how I was talking about how I like history? I wanted to show you a book that’s the most important history book I’ve ever read. I wish I had discovered it years ago. It has helped me understand things I never got before.”
And he opened this zippered bag and pulls out some book on Jesus.
And he stood there and told me how great this book was, on and on, and about all the other books on religion he has read, and the church he goes to, and I just wasn’t going to go there. Finally he ran out of things to tell me about, so he went downstairs and repaired whatever he needed to repair.
It’s one thing to have polite conversation with a client, but was this guy taking it too far?
How would you have reacted?
