Have you ever had someone correct you, bring an observation or confront you about a sin?
How do you respond? Should you thank them for coming to you, repent, ask clarifying questions? There are so many options that at times you just don’t know what to do.
Now, Wheel of Correction takes all the worry and stress out of responding to correction. When someone “speaks the truth in love” to you, say, “I really want to hear this but can you excuse me for just a minute? I need to use the restroom.” Once inside, pull out your handy dandy Wheel of Correction and give it a spin. Whatever response the arrow points to, turn the card over and on the back it will give you the following responses:
- Pity Party - Say “Right, it’s always my fault. I’m the bad guy. I can’t do anything right. Yep let’s blame old (insert your name here), etc.”
- Alien Abduction - “You know, two days before I did that to you, I was abducted by aliens, taken into their ship, experimented on and they implanted something into my brain. I can’t possibly be held responsible for my actions.” Of course, you can only use this one so many times with the same person before they begin to get suspicious that this might not have happened.
- Nobody knows - “Nobody knows the kind of pressure I’ve been under. My whole life is falling apart. And now you bring me this?” Lay the guilt on thick. You might consider combining this one with #7.
- Counterattack – “Oh yeah? Well if you hadn’t said you were praying for me I never would have slit your tires.”
- Sorry if… This is a good all-purpose almost asking forgiveness for any offense while still blaming the other person: “Sorry if you were offended…” or “Sorry if you misunderstood me.”
- Witnesses - “You can’t prove that. Do you have witnesses? Aha! I thought not. So it’s your word against mine.”
- Tears-a-flowin’ - As the other person is correcting you, start your lower lip quivering. As they go on, make tears well up in your eyes, and work your way up to a full wail, hopefully before they can even finish. If you’re not used to working up a good cry, you may need to practice this one before using it in real life.
- Piercing Stare - As they are speaking, stare directly into their eyes without blinking. Do not smile. Gradually form your eyes into slits. Imagine balls of fire shooting out of your eyes. Eventually, they’ll avert their gaze, awkwardly back away, then break into a full-tilt sprint to get away from you.
Wheel of Correction works great! If somebody wants to “have a chat” with you, spin it before you meet with them and you’ll be ready to go.
