Good vs. Evil

Being in good spirits this afternoon, I decided to strike up a conversation with the driver of this taxi by asking him about his collection of Buddhist amulets and small statues of revered monks on his dashboard. According to the cabby, most of them are there to protect him from evil spirits. But after answering my initial question, he gave me the cold shoulder. I hope that he didn't consider me to be one of the "evil spirits" to which he was referring.
