    I was eating at a round table with several co-workers. One of the guys starts talking about some place that he went to that was haunted. He was talking about cold spots and some other lingo I've heard while channel surfing past some of those ghost shows. Another old dude that was sitting with us is super religious. I mean old time Southern Baptist. I could tell he was getting very upset about the whole ghost talk.

    I knew that this was a gift to me and I tried my damnest to think of something to say that would stir the pot. I couldn't think of anything. What should I say if this comes up again that will not permanently prevent these people from wanting to work with me?

    The weird thing is that ghost guy is pretty religious too. His daughter went to Liberty University, which was started by one of those TV preachers.

    Ask him how he can be super religious and believe there's an after life but think there are no ghosts. Pretty contradictory.

    It gets pretty touchy talking about that kind of stuff with coworkers. Several people would stroke out if I told them of my religious beliefs.

    We're all contractors so we're sort of competitors for the same $. There is sort of an edge to the relationships anyway.

    Did you ask him why it is that if ghosts are real, why is it only the feeble-minded donkeys that can "see" them?

    Thank you for your call.

    If a ghost or spirit had sex with you while you were sleeping, would you worry that it might have been a same sex ghost?
