    3. Estimated (to the nearest 10! !)<~~~That would be me.

    #3 just estimating I would round up the 10, 15 minutes to an hour, I think there may be only two occasions where I ever made a 10 or more and that brings me to ----

    #6 some of those were made up.

    I had a chart that I kept inside my call book. It was like an expanded time slip, with the whole month on it. At the end of each day, I would enter my time, RV's, placements, BS's, etc. That was when I was pioneering.

    The last several years, I made it up.

    Marilyn I was thinking about what you wrote, how carefully you kept track. I was pretty anal about those things myself for awhile. After all Jehovah wanted me to keep careful records right? Then I started thinking that I was just an idiot, so easily brainwashed that I had to be pathetic.

    But it really isn't like that is it. I mean we really did try to do out best. I wanted to be a good example to my family and to others in the congregation. I'm sure you did too. Didn't you honestly feel like you were there to help people? I ignored lots of gossip and garbage only because I really thought this is where we are supposed to be. I'm sure you did too.

    I am very sure I was brainwashed in a very subtle way. It was effective.

    OK, enough hyjacking.

    LB, I was pretty much like you! Started out real good, but by the end, what report!!! LOL

    Hi Al. Yes, I ignored so much, until it just all collapsed. Dave helped it too.............he kept adding to it for me. I finally quit turning in time, except every 3 or 4 months. Our book study conductor was my best friend's husband and he didn't want to confront me, so didn't. I would get nervous and turn in fake time just to keep the elders away.

    When I was pioneering, I was pretty loose about my time. I rounded it off to the next hour, and never kept track of the 15 minutes or 25 minutes. An hour was fine. Didn't bother my conscience either.

    6. Made it all up!

    When I had no time to go out in the field service that is.(very rare)

    Otherwise, I was quite honest +- 5 hours...

  • shamus

    Was very honest....
    When I quit going out, quit handing in my time.......

    Didn't even feel bad.
