It took three years for me to wake up. Then, I got kicked off the ranks of Regular Pioneer because I made 986 hours instead of 1,000.
What a SLACKER you were! Man you're goin' straight to Hell in a handbag LDH......986 hours......geeze, obviously you had a "bad attitude" and were totally "lacking in appreciation for spiritual things." Tsk, tsk, tsk.
I was told I didn't take my obligation seriously, no consideration for the fact that I spent MANY MANY hours building the Assembly hall in Henrietta NY and not being able to count the time.
Ya.....if you want to count time, you have to go to Bethel and pick vegetables in their garden----didn't you know that? I'm not kidding....there was a pioneer in my old Hall and that's how she got half her time in: picking vegetables at Bethel.........I wonder how many Bethelites picked their noses and counted it as Time....
