    Oompa great to see you again. I am in exactly the same position. I don't own it, but am a senior manager in a company started by witlesses and where 50% of the employees are still witlesses including the Director I report to. He is an elder in a different congregation to the one I attended, but we often exchanged as away speakers and were in the same circuit.

    I am NOT DF'd but it is known at work that I have stopped going to meetings. Some of the witlesses are as they have always been but a few are obviously distancing themself from me.

    Unfortunately I spend a great deal of time travelling to conferences alone with my boss, and he usually tries to turn the conversation around to my spirituality. The last week he brought up how the circuit misses my talks, as I had a unique style which people could relate to. He also said I have a responsibility to make sure my kids are being fed spiritually.

    The problem is I cannot say what I really feel or he would report me as an apostate. I don't want to leave because I am good at what I do and really enjoy the role. I have only been permanant there since May of this year but have consulted for them since 2006.

    The good news is the company was bought out last year by a PLC so I am hpoing the ratio of witlesses to non witlesses will change for the better in thye future.

    No problem. I know you meant no harm. But, as you know, you never know who lurks here and I can't risk somebeody with bad intentions finding me on the friend list of someone who openly posts here and is known in my whereabouts.

    Nice to see the 'real' you Oompa. Best wishes in all your endeavors!

    Man, I remember you going through hell. You would write your arse off about it. You had a sense of humor that shined through your pain. I hope that you keep that sense of humor and that all goes well for you. I don't know if you remember me or not. I was formerly MsMcDucket.

    Take care


    Hey Crazy Man!..
