18. the Witnesses used to come by my apartment
I'd invite them in, and we'd have a fun time debating finer points of theology.

I noticed that it was always the same older guy, with a different younger one every week. This went on several weeks, then we moved.

A few years later, I moved back, got a job at a warehouse, and the elder of the Witnesses was one of my coworkers. He remembered me, and I asked him what the deal was (this was all in a very friendly manner).

Turns out, I was the test run. If the new missionaries could survive a run-in with me, they got to go out on their own. They didn't have to win, just not crash and burn.

So this atheist is truly doing god's work, apparently.
