    I was at my first door alone at age 7 in 1951. Coerced into baptism at age 12. I made it all the way up to microphone boy. I was fired from that privilege of service for not wearing a necktie on the job. I didn't like being a Witness, I mostly didn't like the Witness people, and they overfilled my bullshit bucket.

    I kicked the kingdom hall door in 1974 when I saw the year-text. I was fractionally shunned from 1974 until 1992. From 1992 until present I am fully shunned. I actually like "fully shunned" better.

    This is the best life I've ever had. I don't like the Witness people and I advocate to their detriment. I don't want any Witnesses to leave the cult and I have scores to settle with more than a few. I'm always on the lookout for settlement opportunities.

    My mother's expression for somebody she didn't like was: "I wouldn't piss on em if they were on fire.".

    Baptised at 19, lots of aux pioneering, married kids ms for a number of years. I had an "elder" who had a fixation on destroying me (ironically he died young from cancer despite being a health nut. I look back now and realise he had deep seated, chronic mental health issues). He hassled my wife to stop full time pioneering saying she was a burden on the cong. I used our car for work so she needed to be picked up.....

    Anyhow I stood down as ms etc, yrs go by...suddenly I'm 42 and totally unhappy. I researched deeply and left. Eventually my (ex)wife, kids are now all free.

    Life does begin at 40!! Lol

    My mother would have made Rutherford look like a choir boy by comparison.

    Nobody hates Jehovah's Witnesses more than the Watch Tower Society. The Watch Tower Society thinks Jehovah's Witnesses are idiots. I agree.

    I agree with you, Gary.
