    Hello, sowhatnow!

    i know what you mean, lol!

    There was a short few weeks when my husband and i were assigned to an afternoon meeting. It made my life easier for awhile, because I could get up and get to the store, put the supper in the crockpot, do some chores, get ready and go to the (Sunday) meeting.

    After the meeting we would walk into a clean house and eat a relaxed supper. It was nice!

    So of course a few friends griped that they hated the afternoon meeting because it ruined the whole day - by the time the meeting was over it was too late to go anywhere. I told them how we were enjoying Sundays so much more with the late meeting; they'd look at me so disgusted.

    In no time at all the meeting was changed around to where we were in the mornings again.

    Your view is interesting, to me it seemed like the early Sunday meeting was better since it was out of the way and you had all afternoon to enjoy the rest of your Sunday, instead of Sunday being cut in half, like go out and knock on doors in the morning, but when you go back home you got to get back out again for the meeting.

    When I was about eight or nine I let out a massive fart during the Meeting, a couple of my mates nearby started the mantra "Its not funny, its not funny" in case an escaping snigger got them the blame for the explosion.

    After the Meeting they told me I should have kept it in till after. How do you hold one of those really explosive ones in ?

    i guess that's what made them mad, @Shirley; we weren't going fs Sunday mornings. Instead used the time for our own convenience, to make things run more smoothly at home.

    I hated the early morning meeting. I liked the noon or 1 pm meeting . I love to sleep in and have a good breakfast, 1pm slotlet me do that.

    But yeahhhhh there was never time for anything because of the meetings. I just wanted to live and enjoy life! It wasalways the freaking meeting!!!

    Ugh I hated being a JW. What a pointless waste of [email protected]#%@!!!!
