Are Witnesses really this stupid that they need to be told this?

    I carry sanitizer with me, and now I noticed that my college has sanitizers near every entrance and in every bathroom.

    My sons asked me once if i ever shook hands with and so? I said sometimes, why? They said he doesn't wash his hands when he goes to the toilet!!! I stopped immediately.

    This shaking hands as a sign of brotherly love is a bad thing.

    So evidently the claim about Jehovah's clean people is just that, a boastful claim.

    Phone witlessing if you are sick? What ever happened to just taking the time off so you can feel better? Or, I suppose you are supposed to waste all that time and money (those phone calls often do cost money, either per-message rates or cell phone minutes) making phone calls (which will probably be hang-up calls) and writing letters, at 44 cents a stamp so you can get your 20 hours a day of field circus uninterrupted.

    And, what really happens if you miss a boasting session for swine flu? Chances are good that the hounders will tell you "It really wasn't that bad--you could have made it". And, how often do the hounder-hounders like seeing boasting sessions cancelled for such a little thing as a scam flu? Many hounder-hounders have that "We NEVER cancel boasting sessions" attitude or are too busy to give a speedy answer to cancel a boasting session before it does the damage.

    Germs? Yes, they are everywhere. Paper towels and hot air dryer handles have germs--even if you sterilize them, in minutes new germs from the air will settle there. However, bringing in one cloth towel for everyone to use is too much. Asking someone to take the damn thing home to wash it is not practical--that's why it has been sitting there so long. And, with the number of people that wash with just water (no soap), it could be dirty inside of half an hour. After one boasting session, it is probably so dirty that you are better off not washing than using that filthy towel. And yes, in that environment, they do get filthy that quickly.

    The fact that the brothers & sisters have to be constantly reminded says a lot about these people - that they are not all that concerned about being hygenic - cleanliness next to godliness - mmm right (constant reminders)

    In saying that though, most people don't cover their mouth when they sneeze/cough, or sneeze/cough in your direction and all sorts of other things and then couldn't be bothered to wash their hands.

    I do remember a talk about hygiene about 15 years ago. Brushing teeth, bathing, deodorent.... The brother giving the talk sorta chuckled through the whole thing. The only thought I had were the smelly gross JW employees I worked with

    We had to have a company meeting once on.................wiping your ass and not throwing the paper into the trash but the toilette. Also:

    NOt pissing on the floor & Flushing the toilette. Then of course washing your hands.


    bathing before coming to the office and brushing your teeth.

    All but two employees at the time out of about 15 were "worldly". The "worldly" ones were clean
