I am guilty for tattling, this was about a girl I liked and he was close friends to her (they attended the same book study)), I asked if they were going out repeatedly which he denied, eventually I made a move (not much of a move), she didnt want to speak to me and he said she was not interested. It turned out they were secretly going out, she would just show up at his place un-invited, now we had been buddies for years, what upset me was he didn't trust me, lied and made me look like a tool. he also had like a double life so people in the truth thought him to be very spiritual while with I always found him to be normal.
Jealousy got the best of me, I told a truth he trusted me not to tell anyone, he owned a plastic replica of a semi-auto hand gun that fires palletes, and its illegal in this state to own one, so I told one "sister" and the rumour spread like wild fire. He's father being an elder perhaps helped, he didnt loose any privileges, the helder (his father) spoke to me after a meeting in a small room, asked if new anything about this, I lied, the elder trying to explain that a pallete gun isn't any different to a water gun, I lied and denied any involvement. I could have made the situation a lot worse by going straight to the police but I didn't.
Now that a look back, I wish I didn't waste any time in jw girls, politics or the "truth".
