bluebrother, JW land a meritocracy? if it were true, many of us would not be here. Many of those with status in the wt do not MERIT it, if held to the teachings of the book.
What Was Your "Status" Within The Organization?
I never really thought about my "status" in the hall. I show up (usually during the song, and zone out for 2 hours, then try to leave without talking to anyone. The wife likes to talk though, i use the hungry excuse on Sundays to leave right away. Thursdays its "tired". Saturdays service is usually just a flat out no.
I am probably perceived as my wifes weak link - she answers and gives talks and all that crap, i sit there and zone out. No one has said anything about the goatee thing yet, only the wife.
