    in the waiting area of the medical office I took my husband to this morning. I removed them from the waiting area and they will soon be destroyed. I would have disposed of them at the medical office but I couldn't find a trash can.

    I always remove them when I see them. Do JW's do the same to others' literature?

    Did you tell the receptionist, nurse, or doctor about it? Mention that somebody is leaving literature promoting non-scientific medical quackery (the no-blood policy) in the waiting room. They probably do not want such things in the waiting room, where patients would assume the doctor approved of those publications.

    No, I didn't tell anyone about the mags. I had just come out of the examination room with my husband and happened to see the mags on a table in the waiting room as we were going for the door. I think they had just been left there because I did not see them on that table when we arrived, nor did I see anyone reading one of the mags. It's a rather large and busy waiting room, with three different services (x-ray, podiatry, and rheumatology) and magazines are left there all the time. I don't think the folks behind the reception desks really control what is left there.

    I understand. Thank you for your public service!

    Mrs. Jones, surely Jehovah will bless you for your efforts.

    mrsjones, you're providing a great public service there.

    I recently found an Awake magazine in my doctors reception... I didn't bin it... I annotated the article on evolution, I thought it would be better if some JW picked it up a read the comments! Alas, I expect it was a waste of time - however it did keep me from having to pick up 'Devon Life' magazine, which features a vaste array of beautiful houses I can't afford :o( so thanks for that WBTS!!! You rock!

    PS. I've convinced some people that 'Awake' is pronounced 'A-wack-ee'. I don't know why I do it... I think I have mental issues, but it is fun. I tell them the WatchTower is from the US, and the Awackee is from Japan. Most people seem to believe anything you tell them about dubs, it's true... for example, just pick something mundane - for example - tell the next person that asks about dubs... "You know they don't eat fish - it's a sin", or "do you know they can't eat fruit on the third Sunday of each month?". They'll believe you. :P

    Spread the love!
