    Welcome to JWD!

    I do not go from door to door however I still put my "time" in the box to keep the elders off of my back. Not one person has ever questioned how I can report time without ever going out in service. It is easy, just write it down on a little piece of paper.

    I'm so glad to hear that! I hope lurkers (like you were) will read that and realize that's all they have to do. They want the numbers, let them have them! Meanwhile you get some peace, some space, and a chance to collect your thoughts without pressure. Wonderful!

    Welcome to the forum, nice to hear from you, you seem to know which way to follow and how to handle things despite the difficulties of being in a high control group.

    We are kindred spirits glad to have you now officially on board. I started my way out years ago when a brother at my book study group ask a simple question it was. How come can't auto transfuse ourselves the Society says it is because the blood coagulates but doesn't blood coagulate before they take out the fractions. I knew right then my life was going to change. Anyway Welcome.

    Welcome, TooBad. The announcement for the convention sounds so hokey to this outsider (I was never "in", my hubby's a JW). Our congregation is five blocks from the convention site. Nevertheless, the conductor finds it necessary to recite the entire convention letter even though 90% of it does not apply to the audience.

    Remember, boys and girls, STAY ALERT. Any moment now....

    It reminds me of the corporate slogan, "The beatings will continue until morale improves."

    HI TBTS, welcome to the forum! I agree, the blood policy makes no sense.
