Without disclosing who or where, I have a JW client who is pursuing an unfair dismissal claim and I have today managed to negotiate a hefty settlement in respect of his dispute (he was actually quite wronged to a degree). He obviously doesnt know I post here because I dont suppose he would mix with apostates (even though I have done some good work for him).
So I presented the offer to him and some advice as to whether or not he should accept the offer and largely its a commercial decision he faces; does he carry on and continue to incur fees or does he settle now for a decent sum and cut his losses; you can imagine the scenario. Now this guy has been quite savvy all along until today!
His response to my advice was 'that he will take it to Jehovah in prayer' and then get back to me to me tomorrow?!
It never fails to impress me how many JWs cannot make decisions without taking it to Jehovah in prayer; I wouldnt mind its not rocket science and its not a tough decision, its a pretty damn simple one from where I sit. I get the impression however that he was saying it more for show than much else...but WTF?!
If he had said he wants to sleep on the issue, then thats cool...its to be expected but what the hell is he expecting, divine intervention....hell my firms good but not that bloody good.
I thought i would share this with you and give you a giggle...it made me laugh anyway!
