You're in a church, lady!

At church today, I was totally put off by this fellow churchgoer.

For starters, she occupied a big space on the pew on her own. Since we were looking for seats, we sat in her pew. When she saw us, she glared at us. Then she kept on looking at us and making faces. When it was time to say "peace be with you", I extended my hand, she extended hers then pulled it back.

This type of behavior - people who are all church-going-y acting abysmally INSIDE the church - never fails to annoy me. I mean, if you can't behave properly while inside the church, what more outside of it? Most people are on their best behavior inside churches, but with some people, oh boy!

Are they there to test the other churchgoers' patience?

It just seemed sooooo hypocritical. Being in church and not practicing what the church teaches. Ugh!
