So after a day of work, rather than relaxing with a drink, you go for the other optional activities. But when you're done gardening or whacking balls and would like to sit down and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine... uh oh, traumatized conscience returns, must go gardening or whacking balls again. This could become a fatal cycle.

Sure, pets take time and money. Installing and maintaining indoor plumbing takes time and money. Gardening and golf both take time and money, too. Sure, I've done plenty of gardening that returned a fair amount of produce. But I've bought plenty of seeds and tended plants that died before yielding and were a total waste of time. And isn't tending flowers and bushes a waste of time and money?
GB to children: "Your beloved pet is worldly. 'It' is a satanic waste of time and money that Jehovah will destroy at Armageddon. But cheer up, Jehovah will replace your demonic animal with a perfect panda in the new system!"*
*Footnote: Pandas will only be available where there is a suitable food supply. There won't be any zoos. So you'll only get to see a panda for a couple of days every million years, if you're approved to travel. As a perfect person by WT standards, you will not want or need any kind of pet. Even in paradise you won't have time or money for such animals because we'll have plenty of meetings and new scams to keep everyone slaving for the corporation.
