I grew up with my mother, aunts and grandmother almost constantly gossiping about members of the cong. Over a period of 40 years one of my uncles was a "company" servant, then a "congregation" servant and finally an elder. He kept the above mentioned cadre supplied with fresh material. In turn, the cadre of women also kept him supplied with hot leads based on other sources of gossip about sexual transgressions, marital problems, etc.
My Grandparents and their oldest daughter and the son-in-law mentioned above lived in mobile homes or rented apts and moved frequently. He always planned ahead to make sure he went to a cong. where he would remain a servant. The moves were usually brought on after a year or two of their joining a cong. Then the gossip shit would start to hit the fan, hard feelings ensued and it was time for them to "shake the dust from their feet" and move on to where they would be appreciated.
For me, it was like growing up in a small family comune of people who were a combination of "Grapes of Wrath" migrants, Judge Rutherford devotees and general mainstream misfits. They took me and my cousins out of public school as soon as possible. Sometimes just moving and not registering us until the neighbors noticed we didn't go to school. Armageddon was always just about to break out so why even bother with school.
