Howdy, welcome aboard.
(Thought I saw a new face in chat, should have dropped in.....)
Anyway, loved this especially:
I found that generally the people at the hall were very shallow...there was always a flaw in personality about all of them that made it impossible for me to like them
Ain't that the truth? (Get it - 'the truth' - HA - oh, nevermind)
Back when the wife and I were trying to be good witnesses, she would criticize me for not making friends at the hall. I just COULDN'T do it, though. I'm a thinker by nature. I love knowledge, computers, science, etc. Although I've grown more sociable since I left the org, I still find it hard to talk with STUPID people. And the org sure had a lot of STUPID people in it.....not just unreasoning, either...I mean DUMB. Like 'George W'-DUMB ()
