One of my BIGGEST pet peeves of being a witness was when the overseer would come visit, and EVERYONE was SOOO nice, sweet to everyone, no clicks, they'd arrive early, stay after & talk, everyone would raise their hands, give "heartfelt" answers, looked nice, sang loud, just the model congregation. Yet, when the overseer WASNT there, people would come late, leave early, not be nice to everyone, blah blah. I guess to me- if they knew what they "SHOULD" be doing, why not do it all the time? I asked an elder this once- I said I almost didn't want to come during an overseers visit, cause it was so phoney- I didn't recognize anyone. He said- well, when you have company at your house- don't you set the best dishes, have excellent food, dress nice- kind of "do up" for company? Thats what we do with the CO comes.
I can handle alot- but not double standards & hypocrisy.
Anyone with similar "phoney baloney" stories?
