    These stories are allmost unbelievable,

    then I remember were talking about the JWs,

    then its all believable again.

    Guess who didn't go out in field service today?

    Guess who still has a voice mail from 9:43am, that he's yet to listen to?

    Guess who's going to be at the meeting tommorrow and hear questions like, "Where were you yesterday?"

    Bad thing is I do feel guilty. I should have went out this morning, but I just didn't feel like it. Plus its hotter than Gehenna out here. Doing door to door in this kind of weather, you're asking to ruin your shirts, both tees and Goeffrey Beenes.

    Hi FS:

    Did you ever tell this experience to this "Elder" at a later time? If so, I would be interested as to his response.

    He probably felt she will be toast at armageddon anyway, why should you miss a meeting for

    that? Truth is though not all witnesses are that heartless, at least not many of the ones I have

    known. Brainwashed and in a trance yes, but not that heartless. You helped save a life that day,

    I hope at least, or at least your workmates and you tried your very best to do so. If you did

    attend the meeting it would have been much of the same stale bread and lukewarm water.

    I never missed a meeting or field service when I was an active witness. I sometimes didn't go, but I never "missed" them.
