Getting kicked out of a Hall Cleaning...

    Hey Guys,

    An experience just came to my mind and was wondering if anyone else had experiences of bizarre restrictions...

    Anyway, I was just publicly reproved and was on restriction so I wasn't allowed to comment. OK, fine...

    Well, the congregation was having it's big Memorial cleaning day, but I decided to go out in field service. I was allowed to do that.

    So I go out in FS and decide to make a return visit to my Bible Study and his family and invite them.

    I tell them about the big cleaning and I get him and his wife and three children to all come down to the hall with me to help clean. I figure it's going to be a good witness to see all the hard working dubs.

    I get there with all these "unbelievers" and we all start cleaning.

    And then NO LIE, the elders pull me aside and tell me I have to LEAVE THE HALL CLEANING because I was under restriction.

    I was like, YOU HAVE TO BE SH*TING ME?!?

    I bring five unbelievers to the hall as a witness and you're going to kick me out??? And the family I brought were working side by side with me picking weeds and stuff at the hall.

    So I left the family there to work and told them I had to go to work or something and just left.

    At the time, I was starting to grow my hair out and it was already way past the "legal" over the ears mark. I guess they got upset at me.

    Anyone else have any bizzare restriction stories???

    Well, thats just bizarre!

    I don't have anything like that, I was never put on restrictions, they just kicked me out immediatly . But I do have to say this, while I was being DF for kissing below the waistline, there was this sister that ran off [18yrs old] went to Turkey, hooked up with this fellow, got pregnant and was merely put on restriction. This was at the same time while I was being DF, for nothing remotly as shocking as that

    Huh??? Never heard about that. But nothing I hear about the JW's surprises me anymore. What a bunch of loons, those elders!

    Is that for real? You really admitted it, and they had the bad grace to question you further???

    What morons they really.

    Totally doesn't suprise me.

    They are such doorknobs. Its okay though - it only shows how bad "the truth" really is, and how little they care.

    What a bunch of freaks!

    The beatings will continue until moral improves.
