Avoid the Buddhist dog adoption guilt trip

So, here’s a little piece of free advice for you.

If you ever find yourself in the city of Changchun, and you happen to wander into a Buddhist temple, avoid engaging the monk in a conversation about how he has adopted 10,000 street dogs to prevent them from getting slaughtered, because he will try to convince you to adopt 100 of them, and will guilt trip you if you refuse. Even if you insist that there’s no way in hell that the DEA would ever let 100 street dogs from China into America, he won’t believe you. 

Believe me, you just don’t want to go down that road.

Better than narrow-minded, I guess.
