I'm gullible, obtuse, submissive, power-hungry, escapist, and lazy, but nobody ever tries to recruit ME for anything. Or maybe they have, but I was too obtuse to notice. Or too lazy to go along with it.



...actually, I'm not THAT power-hungry. Mostly just hungry.

I`ve been targeted for recruitment - and recognizing it for what it was simply refused to leave the street. Any talking needed to be done in public - where I controlled my time and path to escape.
