    There's a lot of them!

    One rule is you can't wear a tee shirt with writing on it if you are working at a quick build KH . Nothing with logos.

    Let's add more stupid rules that were in your Hall or that the Organization has.

    When it was our Group's turn to clean the KH one Sunday, I offered to do the vacuum cleaning, they said cannot get the vacuum cleaner out today it had to be done on one's hands and knees with a dustpan and brush. Needless to say, I didn't do it since I cannot bend long enough to do the job that way and besides which I had my best clothes on.

    Anyone know the reason for this rule?

    I think it would be a shorter list to show what exactly IS allowed, instead of what is forbiden in JW Land. Hell, everything is forbidden, including enjoyable sex!!!!!!

    Know what I think is messed up?? The whole Circuit Overseer feeding arrangement; as in members of the congregation have to feed this asshole when he shows up at their door.

    Excuse me, since when does the flock feed the Shephard? Shouldn't that be the other way around, doesn't the Shephard feed the flock??

    So, shouldn't the Circuit Overseer be taking the whole congregation out to a buffet or The Olive Garden after his public "talk"???????

    Just little things that make you go, Hmmmmmmmmmm.

    JeffT:

    Reminds of some scripture that says something like, "To the giving of titles and the printing of books there is no end....." or something similar, said in a negative light. Sure fits the WT Society, doesn't it????

    Our Cong. had a rule against flip flops- a CO hated the sound they make and was incensed that some sisters wore them out in service- so all the pioneers had to go out and buy regular shoes- they went overboard and would wear any sandals because they were afraid they would make that slapping sound even if they werent specifically "flip flops"

    Back in the 80's- no watching the Simpsons- there was a feeding frenzy demonizing Bart Simpson- "Don't have a cow man"
