    It's Canada day today and not just any Canada day, it's Canada's 150 birthday.

    For some strange reason I was actually able to reason with my wife day and she agreed with me. Field service on a special day wouldn't be appropriate.

    Yet I saw the ubers out in full force this morning.

    Are they really that fucking dumb that they can't figure out why maybe today isn't a good field service day?

    Typically, that wouldn't stop them!

    In all my time with that lot, never was any consideration given to whether or not it was a "good" time or day to attempt to speak to people.

    Thankfully, uber JWs are in shorter supply than usual these days.

    When I was a child, no holiday was off limits. I remember going out in 'field service' on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years day, even if it was snowing! The only holiday that I don't recall going out on was July 4th.

    As a child, my father would insist we go out on all those "special days" as it was "a good time to find people home"

    Also, I am sure that when people would get annoyed, it would play into the persecution complex that witnesses just LOVE

    He would LOVE recounting the experience of a man who on christmas day got angry with us (me a 10 year old) and snapped at us : "Go away! Imagine coming and talking about the Bible on a day like today!"

    The irony was funny I will admit!

    contributions were good though sometime, when we were mistaken by already well oiled householders as carol singers, well wishers.

    Regardless of the celebration or holiday, JW`s will knock on your door.

    Try knocking on a JW`s door, on Halloween......They Hate It!...

    New Years, Christmas, Thanksgiving. No holiday is off limits. In fact, there is generally an organized attempt to get the r&f out knocking on doors. God forbid they would be able to enjoy their day off from work.

    Yea not going out on the holidays in my area was a sure sign of spiritual weakness. So all the brothers especially those who were reaching better be out in failed misery those mornings.

    Worse was New Year's Day. People generally wouldn't wake up till slightly later in the morning and here you have two dummy's knocking on your door selling the Bible. 🙄 Christmas was bad enough having to be fast and all. For those who generally enjoyed talking to people at the doors, it took all the urgency out of the message.
