That's why Yoder decided to help out an injured homeless man he met on Saturday at a Wentzville laundromat.
Man, big mistake.
The homeless man's name, we now know, is 25-year-old Joshua Adam Frillman. Frillman went to the laundromat that day because he'd cut up his hand and needed a ride to the hospital.
So Yoder offered to drive him there.
Then Yoder then waited for two hours for the homeless man to re-emerge from the hospital.
Then Yoder took Frillman to get a bite to eat.
Then Yoder areed to drop him off at a friend's house.
And that's when Frillman pulled a knife on Yoder and demanded money. Yoder nervously handed over $80 and drove off.
But Frillman wasn't done acting like an asshole, because shortly thereafter, he stole his ex-girlfriend's car. The Highway Patrol in Phelps County caught up with Frillman on Monday, realized the car was stolen and took him in.
According to KTVI:
Yoder says he'll be a lot more careful now, but won't let this one incident change him: "I was somewhat naïve, I believe, but it has a lot to do with how I was raised. You just never worried about things like that when you were helping somebody."Perhaps, but maybe that's because it happened in a tight-knit religious community.
Face/neck tattoos, man. Out here, you've got to check for those. (Look at Joshua Frillman's photo above.)
Face/neck tattoos don't necessarily indicate a dangerous person, but they do strongly indicate a non-Amish person.
I say that in jest, Erv Yoder. In fact, you probably actively tried to disregard the face/neck tattoos, because you're a good person. You should be like the rest of us: We prejudge everyone and never get screwed.
