I am amazed by those of you who have not had bad field service experiences.
I have had so many that I could write a book, seriously. The poster Zid even said that to me once.
I have had guns drawn on me many times, I have been bitten at least six times by dogs. Chased to the car to many times to count by dogs.
One time I was working with my husband and the guy was nice but very firm that he was not interested. As we were leaving the gate I felt a sharp pain in my ankle. I looked down and the guys small little rat like dog had gotten loose and bitten me. I was bleeding but nothing huge as the dog was so small, still it would have been nice to at least wash the wound. The householder was mortified and came running out, he was really nice apologized, offered to buy me new pantyhose and offered to let me wash my ankle.
My husband said oh she is fine and proceeded to spend the next hour talking to the guy. I had to finish the day with dried blood on my ankle as we did not want to take time away from Jehovah by allowing me to go home and change. My husband felt that Jehovah had used the dog bitting me to be able to give a witness to the owner as he would not have listened any other way.
Having guns drawn on me terrified me but my husband said they did not really mean it. He would never write them down as a DNC as you never know the next time we come some other family member might answer the door who would like the "truth."
My husband had one call on this guy way out in the rural's his wife was was a JW in our hall and her husband was interested some what so my husband would call on him and talk for hours while I waited in the car for some reason my husband would never take me with him to the door but always someone else in the car. It is a long story but about half an hour after we left this guys step son the wife's son from another marriage comes to the house and kills him with a screwdriver. OH MY GOD I was so freaked out. We had just left. This guy had older children from his first marriage and the older kids said the next JW who came to their door would be shot no questions asked. So every house in the area after that I was freaked out about as I did not know where his kids lived. My husband said oh they are just talking. It was horrible as the step son was fleeing the seen he crashed his car and there were JW's books and magazines in the car.
I hated every minute of field service, I never found any joy in it.
