LET’S BUY HIM OUT
Sadly many of us have found ourselves in this situation; in a business, school, or perhaps a church setting.
Ole John was a member of a church and it seemed anytime the church folks wanted to do something, Ole John was against it. He was always there to put a damper on the idea. Ideas would be discussed, folks would get all excited and plans laid, then John would always say, “I’ve been a member of this church for a long time, I have put money into this church and I don’t think we should do this.” Thus the idea and the plans would be dropped, nothing would happen.
While that is humorous to us in reading, sadly far too often that has been the case. “Ole Johns” have held up many a good work and the efforts of others. I know, I’ve been there.
Often some people just need to be “Bought out.”
