It's a JOB...to have to go to the meetings. I was sitting here trying to think of a comparison of what it is like for a witnesses mindset on meeting night. I really couldn't think of anything other than a" job" for a comparison. Your job is generally something you "have" to or "need" to do to please someone(s), or a performance you do and get paid for it.
For a dub, it's both. You please Jehovah, you please the various publishers by being there. You please yourself with a good conscience you attended..........( even though in reality you'd welcome the idea of the electricity going out and the meeting being cancelled, or on a Sunday when the talk is cancelled because the speaker didn't show up).
You also get paid. Your chances are better of making the new system if you go to the meetings regularly so the reward is building houses in lily fields, watching various races of ladies walking down a cobblestone path with wicker baskets and shitloads of fruits and vegetables dangling out of them with various colors of kids playing and screaming in the backround with smiling faces. It really is a job. Most dubs looked forward to non meeting nights.
