    I should have taken this as a sign of things to come but the very first time I went to a meeting I was in my 20's and my husband was disfellowshipped. We were sitting in the back beside a sister with a little girl. The little girl was restless but not acting up too much and the mother kept taking a hair brush and hitting her with it. It upset me so much and I told my husband if I ever go back I don't want to sit near her.

    Some of these stories had me laughing out loud they were so funny. I hope more will add to this.

    Heard that during a remodel that the brother that was in quality control made the brother remove the insulation from the wall due to the printing on the vapor Barrier being "upside down". We are talking about printed words telling the name of the manufacturer being upside down! It makes absolutely no difference in how it is installed. The brother that was installing the insulation had to remove the ones that had the printing upside down and swap,it over right side up.

    The brother doing the installation told me later that he wanted to ask him " Which direction should the print go hen i install the ceiling?"

    One warm summer afternoon at the Watchtower study, my precocious 20 month old says, quite loudly "I want a beer!" I was trying to shush her, but she wasn't having it. "No really, I want a beer!". I was hoping no one understood what she was saying, but she the brother behind me leans forward and whispers "Don't feel bad, I want one too". It was embarrassing, but funny too. As far as I know she had never had beer, or or even root beer, so I never figured that one out.

    This didn't happen at the KH but instead at a convention- this guy comes in yelling and running looking for someone named Miranda. Immediately myself and the goon crew of attendants start pursuing him trying to escort him out. The whole time we're running behind this dude the attendant overseer is shouting we can't touch him, don't touch him!

    So we literally form this bubble of like 15 attendants around him to keep him from going anywhere and the dude freaks, he shoves one of my buddies straight onto his ass. I mean it was so cool I wish we had instant playback to watch him go down because this guy put all his rage into it.

    Boom he goes down to the ground and he runs off to another part of the convention center, at this point I check out of the maniac pursuit and decide it'd be great not to be stabbed today- I haven't had lunch yet.

    This occured at a CA a few years ago...had to share. The chairman introduced our new CO from the stage on Saturday and he mistakenly said: "And let me introduce our new CO, Timothy McVey (as in Oklahoma City bomber)...um that is Timothy McXXX". Poor Br. Tim just stood there in front of the whole Circuit and proceeded with saying a few words about himself. Meanwhile, the inept chairman went on as if nothing. I let out an audible gasp and looked around to see if anyone else had caught it...I guess not!

    A leg coming out of the ceiling during the public talk.

    Lol, the AC was out and a brother went into the attic to investigate and stepped in the wrong place. I was 11 at the time and thought it was amazingly hilarious!

    This isn't strange but funny. At a circuit assembly a little boy maybe 3-4 runs out the doors drops his pants and starts peeing, but what was funny is he put both hands over his eyes while doing it. I guess he figured if he could see anyone then they couldn't see him peeing.

    Lol I saw a little girl peeing on the concourse between rows of seats at the stadium in Yangon, Myanmar when I was there for the International. She stood there n peed and then stomped in it like a puddle after rain, while mortified Burmese mum comes with paper towels to clean it up.

    Once we had this bipolar bro go jabooba as the meeting started and stride up to the platform and announce to the congregation, "I'm going to take the public talk today brothers, I'll open with prayer..." Then he starts making this noise that was cross between speaking in tongues and straining on the toilet, while 4 elders ran up and corralled him away. He's known in the circuit, and at another congregation he went off and ended up knocking some brother's kneecap off. I felt really sorry for the guy with bipolar as I'd known him for years and he was often in and out of the Jabooba Home.

    The funniest thing I can remember was interviewing my best mate (who I have just got back after he finally saw the light 13 years after I told him ) on the service meeting and asking him why he had decided to regular pioneer. He said he had decided to because he wanted to serve Jehovah while he was full of youthful virility, quickly correcting this to youthful vitality! But it was too late - I was crying laughing so much that I couldn't breathe.
