Yesterday morning while driving heading for the grocery store I saw four JW women out in "service". They were walking very slowly on a street where there were no people out and about. I observed them for several minutes. They passed several apartment complexes and for whatever reason made no attempt to enter them. They just moseyed along chit chating with each other.
About a half hour later when I was returning from the store I saw them again. They were still walking along at a snail's pace and were only about two blocks from where I first saw them. Still in an area where there was little chance of finding anyone to share their so called life saving message with.
Everytime I see JWs out in service they seem to be trying to get there hours in with as little contact with the public as possible. They certainly seem to have lost the pre 1975 sense of urgency.
