Just got off the phone w/ the elder that was supposed to meet me in the parking lot. All I felt was pity for this poor man who couldn't come out and say what he was really feeling. Instead, just excuses...
1. Meeting in the parking lot - they just wanted to meet there for MY convienence. Told him next time we can meet in my office. The chairs probably are more comfortable. His response was he wanted to "visit" with both of us, at the hall or at our home or anywhere else we might want to meet. (I'm thinking a nice restaurant or a beach in the Bahamas, and have them pick up the bill??????)
2a. No contact for two weeks - the letter Jackie sent, letting them know I waited and her feelings about the parking lot meeting seems to have fallen behind his desk...thus the lateness of the call.
2b. The PO had to go to Colorado to attend to family matters (lever transplant for brother). We have 9 elders, you'd think they could have someone fill in for him.
I'm not even sure I want to meet with them. The verbal battle might be fun, but up to now its just, the only word I can think of now, pathetic. The letters say how we feel. And they've already told the people at the hall not to talk w/ us...as my boss is known for saying, "I don't think we have a dog in this fight." Any input would be appreciated.
Can't wait to hear what the wife says,
