I stumbled upon a very strange thing this week when I was traveling for business through a rural part of Ohio …
Setting the Scene:
I had finished work, ate some dinner, and was looking for a place to chill out on my laptop. With limited options, I found a local Tim Horton’s Coffee & Bakery shop and decided to hang out there.
When I entered, the first thing I noticed was the place was packed! “Perhaps this was the happening place to be on a Wednesday night” I thought. So I ordered my coffee, took a seat, and got on my computer.
The majority of the people that were there looked slightly less than well-off. But among them were a few very well (and overly dressed) young women.
Preying Upon the Ignorant:
I got on my phone to have my regular evening call with my wife when suddenly I observed “The Presenter” arriving. He was a young African American male in his 20’s that was also well dressed. He went around the store giving a “Whud up?” and handshake to everyone in attendance (all of which seemed to have been waiting for him to arrive). Everyone seemed glad to see him and he was warmly welcomed. Had I found myself in the middle of some type of cult meeting?
