Yeah I simply cannot imagine the unmitigated gall of the man. How dare he? Who does he think he is? I cannot imagine it happening here.

That's what tripped me out -- the ego required to maintain the fiction that you walk around Earth wielding your god's powers.

Looking forward to the next time ... I'll ask him how come my lottery numbers didn't hit.

RE: First time
When I was diagnosed with cluster headaches, a customer at the store I worked at overheard me telling a co-worker about them and how much they suck. This random woman walked right up to me, placed her hand on the top of my head and began praying in this horribly over-dramatic voice. "OOOHH DEAR LORDY! PPUUUHLLEEEEEEEEEEAASSEE BLESS THIS POOR CHILD!"

I nearly broke her wrist by grabbing and twisting it into a hold behind her back.

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people that makes them think walking up behind someone and palming their head is a good idea... Oh yeah... religion. Dodgy

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

"Nice to meet you," he said with a smile. I sat down again. He continued, "I just thought you needed a blessing, so there it is, a blessing."

"Oh, okay," I answered as he turned and walked away.

It's the first time since I returned home three years ago that I've had religion pressed so overtly in my face, and it felt a little creepy.

My coworker tells me that when she was having chest pains earlier in the year, he "blessed" her, and her pain went away. I think perhaps she mentioned my chronic pain to him (a result of bone disease in my hip) and he took it upon himself to be Sir Galahad.

Alas, the fucking hip is still crotchety as hell, as is the sonofabitch attached to it.
Sounds similar to my experience.
