For about a year I have been sporting a beard. Usually I would do this during elk hunting season and shave it soon after. Anyhoo I'm doing my daily quality control of my product and an associate at work whom I have spoken too on occasion greets me with a " buenos dios bro". I kindly reciprocate with "good morning". He then pops the question? Are you a JW?
While fading, I had conversation with him about being a JW so he knew that I was. I guess seeing the "forbidden beard" and possilbly the "skoal ring" prompted the question. Are you a JW?
My close encounter was here. I put it off long enough. I simply said that " I use to be". His reply was " oooh?,why?. I said, its a long story. He said, oooh, thats not good. He then promptly walked away. Edited to say: This person is a JW
It felt good to get it out. I walked away feeling good that I let him know that I was no longer a JW and thats it pretty much none of you damn business why.
I would like to hear your close encounters
