    Men in Suits on Campus.... They are EVERYWHERE!!!

    Old guys from Gideons International are handing out Bibles at almost every corner and bus stop on campus. I've received 4 already today. Kind of overdone if you ask me...

    Once you get that first one, you got to use it to fend the other guys off.

    I bet Burlington Coat Factory gives them a pretty sweat deal for buying them in bulk.

    Re: Men in Suits on Campus.... They are EVERYWHERE!!!

    I saw those guys freshman year and had no idea what was going on. On my way back to campus in the afternoon I tried to hand one of them an adult magazine back. BAD IDEA. They go everywhere on campus except into buildings. Had to cut through Durham to get him off my tail.

    I guess to a point I appreciate their efforts (those who are sincere) but there are better ways than to shove bibles down throats.

    LMAO.

    You just gotta learn to say no, just walking from my place I saw 8, and directly had to walk past, and say no to, 4 of them. And that was just from Welch & Lincoln Way to Gerdin.
