    Very interesting. He may question others if they heard from Alvin then he may start wondering who he really was talking to. It was funny. We've been in large city where they had North & South Unites. He probably just made a mistake and it will hit him later & try & figure out who he was talking to.

    At least you know that people are not rampantly gossiping about you, hence the reason he was confused on your status. Pretty funny story!

    OTWO- Funny experience. If you had played along you could have REALLY freaked this guy out and told him you had a letter from the society indicating that there were to be no more meetings held ! New light. You know- persecution's starting and everything. Wouldn't THAT have started a $hit storm . Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    We are not reading the story the same way. He was sure I was someone else with the same first name. He thought I was this elder in 'South' and he couldn't understand why I wasn't more conversational with an elder he serves shoulder-to-shoulder with.

    It has nothing to do with whether they are rampantly gossiping about me. They very well might be.

    I loved it. I have had strange things happen sort of like that. The other day I was at Home Depot and this sister from a small town about an hour and half away was there with her elder husband. They apparently have not heard the gossip about me or my husband being deleted. She kept on talking about how great RBC is an how I really should sign up what a blessing from Jehovah it is to work for free for the weekend, and then her elder husband came up all smiles and he did not have a clue my husband was deleted as an elder and was talking elder talk to him. I just let it go. But I wonder what they will think when they hear the gossip on us.

    Hey LITS - when that kind of thing happens it reminds me of how free we are. It's amazing how easy it is to just sit back and let the JW just chatter away and think, "I'm so glad I made it out of there"... LOL

    Hello Lioncask, I noticed what you said about the Borg mind trick. I thought I was the only person to notice the similarity between the congregation and the collective. You will be assimilated, resistance is futile... But back to the main point, I don't think it's deliberate, if that mob are anything like they are over here in the UK, well, we have an expression. Couldn't find their ass with both hands...
