Is There Any Organization That You Won't Work For?


I'm not talking about a GC who might have stiffed you, rather some sort of religious organization, or "gang" or some such.

The reason that I am curious is that I got a call this morning from a person. He wanted me to go out to his farm house, well over an hour's drive away.

He was slick! he had a shop, and "people" who could go get lunch and coffee for the trades guys etc. He then said that he didnt' want to tell me what organization he was with, because (so he said) "I don't want you to feel like your being drawn in" oooookkkk then.

I refused, as I know from experience that working that far from home is a dead loss - for me anyhow. The gas and tolls eat up a lot of money!

He had to be told no three times (politely) it was hard! boy he was slick! LOL

I googled his phone number later on, and voila! it went back to a well known "mind control" group.

That got me wondering, do you folks have personal rules about working for "gangs" or any other group that offends your morals?

He had a "shop". A carpenter shop? With hands working in the shop? Maybe he was trying to recruit you. Lol

Re: Is There Any Organization That You Won't Work For?


well, the first part of the name of the organization is "L Ron" so you can figure out the rest.

The location is about 25 miles east of me. The farmhouse is outside of Mission B.C. and ya I could almost hear the banjo's in the background LOL

It might be a good gig, but I've gone out that way for work in the past, and it's been a dead loss.

Dunno, my scam radar was pingin so I guess keeping away from that job is a good thing.

My hearing isn't so good but my sense of smell is keen (as a result?). I won't work for a gay male couple because of the way they smell sometimes. They don't always smell that way but when they do, it is noxious to me.

I got a buddy that won't work for lawyers unless they pay 100% upfront. Lawyers tend not to want to enter into that sort of agreement.

Dude working for Marijauna Grow operations is big business back home in Northern Cali... If alot of the guys i know opted out they would miss on real work, and these guys pay top dollar and cash.

I know it sounds wrong... but its legit. And were talking big projects.
