    And I just noticed that the thread has developed quite well on it's own.

    I remember when the WTS called the "meetings for field service" rendezvous.

    I remember the term "rendezvouz." My mom hated it. My dad was not a JW and a little paranoid. Imagine telling him that she was going to a rendezvous? It sounded like an assignation. That arrangement lasted barely a year.

    It is one of gnat things the WTS was fond of stressing and ignoring the camel things such as JWs "placing" magazines they hadn't read themselves.

    rendezvous [obs]
    A prearranged meeting place. The term formerly designated a place to meet for field service. The word is taken directly from the French language and is pronounced RON-day-voo. <<This week the rendezvous will be at the book study location.>>

    STORY: The reason for discontinuing the use of this term is probably because of its similarity to tryst, i.e., an agreement between lovers to meet. [164] One sister's unbelieving husband was upset whenever she told him she was headed off to a rendezvous, until he realized she didn't mean she was two-timing him.

    Yup. They do like their new terms don't they. And the ubber witnesses loved correcting you when you forgot to use the latest terms.
