    Well Ditto on what Xena said,,,,,,,,,,,,,Me, Woman,,,,,,,NO PRIVILEDGE!!!! Not even one.

    And dear Brothers, I think I can speak for the all of us Sista's,,,,,,,,,,,,the following areNOT "priviledges" no matter how much they tried to convince us they were:

    #1- Kingdom hall clean up duty,,,,,,,, vaccumning, toilet bowl cleaning, polishing the almighty podium , etc , etc.

    #2- Waiting for "just 10 minutes" (RRRRRRIGGGGGGGGGHTTTT) while your husband has to deal with someone's problems for the 10th time,,,,,,,,and your wait, turns out to be an hour, not a priviledge.

    #3- Pioneering

    #4- Going out of town with hubby , an extra hour early , kids and all so he can give talks eleswhere( heck we didnt want to be at our own hall, why the hell did we want to go to a strange one)

    #5- Providing the Wine and making the bread for the memorial

    #6- Giving #3 and #4 talks, no way , was that a priviledge , but just another reason to have a complete nervous breakdown!! for me anyway.

    I could go on and on ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but any other sister's can you think of one priviledge a sister could have had, but the left over crap work the brothers didnt want to do , or in all fairness didnt have time to do because there was always some elder who LOVED to have any reason to have a spur of the moment elders meeting???????????? ( I think he just wanted to get out of his house away from his bossy wife)

    cheeses - always a faithful slave.

    Lyin' Eyes,

    It's 9.12 in the UK which means it's um, about 3.12 in the US.

    Are you a night owl?

    at first I thought it was cool to hand out the mics but it got old fast and i absolutely hated when i was asked to pray for a meeting, i would always say the same dumb thing, i felt like Gaylord Focker.

  • LyinEyes

    Ah yes , Englishman you have found me out!! I am terrible about going to bed when I should,,,,,,, the house is quiet , the kids are asleep and I am surrounded by ,sssssshhhh quiet,, hehe. I have always hated to go to sleep , but when I do,,,,,,,I dont want to get up. Usally I am trying to go to sleep at this time,,,,,,but can't seem to leave the computer.

    Oh BTW,,,,,,,,,more thoughts on these priviledges,,,,,,,,,,,hehee I am on a mad roll now,,,,,,,,,it is not a freakin' "priviledge" to take enough food that will not spoil , for a family of five , in a giant ice cooler to the district conventions. I am so glad the GB , was good enough to tell us this was a priviledge, another way that Jehovah God made sure that we not only had spiritual food but also by bringing our own lunches, ( again for emphasis,,,,,,,, for a family of FIVE),,,,,,,,,would give us more time to associate with our brothers,,,,,,,,and what a priviledge that was.

    To tell the truth I got over the doing what I was told bullmess,,,,,,,, my kids were so little I had to tote the lunches, so we figured that was too much trouble. We either went to get a burger at the break , or went back to the room with our McDonalds and let the kids swim off some energy. WildTurkey the good elder , had to get back, but got to lag around the pool until I was 30 minutes late arriving for the afternoon session.

    OMG, I think I found out what we as sisters had the priviledge of , seriously,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it is that we DIDNT have ANY priviledges!!!!!!!!!hehehhe

  • obiwan

    Well I was a kid at the time so I say #12.

  • rocketman

    Actually, "Occupied". I had something to do. Otherwise, I was bored stiff at the meetings. Seriously, it was just something to do to get me through.

    Problem is, once you begin getting "privilages" it's hard not to feel privilaged.

    Other: I always felt pressured. I was the account servant and later the literature servant, and also was an assistant BS conductor. When I was deleted as servant I felt relief for awhile, but few years went by and the Cong elders started in with suggestions to reach out again for duties in the Cong. To me, it was a feeling of pressure. I finally caved in and took over the sound and also was a Mic handler for awhile just before I decided to move South. The later made me feel burdened( I guess thats similar to being pressured, huh). I was tired of having to be committed to extra work on top of a full time job. The whole scene just wore me out!
