Funny Lie Detector Story
I wanted to share with you an almost comical experience I had maybe about 20-years ago with an individual who was on probation for a sexual molestation offense. He was tough, evasive, complaining, ridged, and even confrontational. However, I was able to maintain an objective disposition (as best I could, I feel I’m much better at this now than I was 20-years ago,) but the turning point came maybe about the third appointment he had with us. He was required to pay for his examination. What made this unusual was that instead of paying dollar bills for the test, he had first gone to the bank and obtained $250 in quarters, and brought this to pay for his test, thinking this would be something that I would be angry about this kind of defiance. However, instead of being angry about this, Paula and I look as if we were more amused, and we laughed about it. More importantly, his attitude also changed. Oh by the way, the tons of quarters he presented really did not present any kind of problem because they were at least rolled up. He disclosed the name of the bank he had used, and later that day I just returned to that same bank and exchanged the quarter mine for paper cash.
