The church door was open, so I walked into a dark hallway towards the pastor's office. I could see a shadow and I assumed it was the pastor. Just as I got to the office, a figure jumped out at me and yelled. I would have dropped my tools, had I not already put them down by the sanctuary!

It turns out the maintenance man thought I was the pastor, and decided to jump out and scare him! \:D

If you had your wits about you could have phlegmatically said, "No, I am the bishop."

You could have strangled him with your felt mute strip, give him a taste of piano tech torture...

I've always wondered why people think that scaring someone is a fun thing to do to people. Being scared is such an enjoyable thing. Right?
