    I met one in a porn peep shop-big surprise and the 2 witness rule saved both us.

    That's tremendous!!

    Hans Hubler was a total narcissistic arse. I’m surprised it took Wt so long to remove him before they did. I heard Wt was eventually forced to do something, when he was transferred to the pacific islands / French Polynesia. Only DO I know where he was removed.

    Ron.W.: "That's tremendous!!"

    That's the two witnesses rule working as intended. It's not a bug, but a feature. 🙄

    In the U.S.A. a C.O. by the name of Lou Razor. Believe me...this guy lived-up to his name

    Ain't that the truth. {{{shiver}}}

    Really a jerk.

    Jaracz was a real joy at Bethel also. I never heard a single good word about him from anyone. Seriously, not a single good word.

    UK Circuit Overseers who were jackasses, hmm. I have a long list.

    ukpimo, I came here looking for one name for sure - and found it: Mike Purbrick!

    I knew someone would list him among the worst UK COs. I've never known someone so universally hated - and for good reason, he really was full of himself. Yes, a very good speaker from the platform, but in person he came across so arrogant and condescending.

    Surprised to see Anton Irons and Michael Spurr in the list though. They seemed to me to be decent enough. I also knew a few others listed there, but not well enough to make too much of an assessment of their character. Most COs were rather anonymous, bland men to me, and their wives virtually invisible.

    Upper Midwest (USA) Two I remember as being particularly loathsome were named Martin Harfman, and last name Smeltzer. Both instrumental in starting me on the path to freedom from the hamster wheel of JWism.

    Wayne Johnson was our district overlord in Ontario Canada. A true piece of work.

    Not naming any names but there was a phucking fool CO many years ago who said “people should do the housecleaning…”.

    I believe this might have been a dig at me sitting there because I had a full-time job that I wouldn’t quit to do the ‘approved’ housecleaning/pioneering that they held out to young single women.. I was gossiped about relentlessly so I wouldn’t put it past some idiot to work this into his ‘talk’.. I Thank God now I never paid any attention to these busybodies!

    Not sure if he’s still around but I would have loved to tell him off.

    LHG - I called out many CO's on nutty things they said. I simply asked for explanations and then commented on the potential results if the direction was followed. I recall a rather nutty CO who never worked a day in his life tell some sisters that they should consider pioneering instead of working. I immediately chimed in and said how excellent it was that the Branch was going to cover their financial needs! He was noticeably upset and said ThAt'S NOT WHAT I MEANT. I appeared to be crestfallen and asked how they were to pay for their needs. He was stunned - no answer.

    Most JW special full-time servants have no clue where the money comes from to fund their lifestyle. We must all be millionaires - right?
