OK, I work as a taxi driver, and have had a few witnesses in my car already. As there is no where to run, and being in a confined space, there is no choice other than to create small talk. After all, shunning someone who is essentially responsible for taking said witness home could lead to a rather embarrassing outcome!
These witnesses I cannot comment on. However, I did have one witness young lady wave and smile at me at the taxi rank a couple of days back. This witness is also a pioneer, so she is supposed to new uber "loyal" to the org! As I disassociated myself from the tentacles of the org, wouldn't I be worse than those who are DF'd? Wouldn't I be on first name terms with the evil one?
So my question is, are there more awake witnesses than we ever thought possible?
---edit--- something that just came to mind. I was told by another pioneer that this young pioneer didn't want to pioneer, and she felt forced into it by her friend (another story) and her mother.
