There are some major problems with the JWs, doctrinally, socially, and organizationally. From shunning to crazy elder bodies to guilt trips, there are many things that were really bad. This thread is devoted to the small, insignificant things that just really really IRKED you. Here's some of mine:
* Getting called on to say the prayer for Field Service. I don't know why, I was always just waking up, barely conscious on Saturday mornings and just dreaded getting called on for the prayer. Eventually I just started coming late enough to miss the whole meeting.
* The final prayer at the District Convention. Finally, it was done. But, why o why do you have to pray for 10 minutes. Just let us gooooooooo. Those were some of the longest minutes ever.
* Having the Bagel Store forget to put something on my field service egg sandwich during break, like ketchup. After hours in the cold or the hot or the rain it was finally break time! Finally can get that delicious egg sandwich. Driving off and biting in only to discover a missing ingredient was so demoralizing.
* Getting scheduled for being attendant during lunch. C'mon man. The one excuse to get up, stretch, walk around, and not have to pretend to pay attention during the sessions is the daily attending duties. Scheduling me for lunch actually makes it a chore, and I miss half of the break! Not cool.
