    The excuses made for coming off pioneering were, at times, cringeworthy.

    One minute the brother is claiming ill health and the next month he is in a full time job!

    Its all down to position and status - "oh yes, my son came off because he is getting married!".

    Did anyone ever watch the comedy sitcom - 'keeping up appearances'?

    Pathetic so it is!

    My wife loves that British sitcom, 'keeping up appearances'

    The entire series is available on DVD (netflix). I think I will use references to it in pointing out problems with JWs.

    Thanks for making me think about it.

    I have heard a few excuses for coming off, like getting married, starting a family, etc. I came off through ill - health myself, and I was off work for a while, then went back to my part - time job on reduced hours. Some "unhealthy" ex pioneers did, however, take up full - time jobs soon after quitting.
