As a witness business owner:
I have had cheaper than cheap sisters cheat me out of money, hold payments till way overdue and then trash me to their friends in the hall;
Had an elder "exchange" work with me; he wanted to charge me retail, have me do it on the weekend and he wanted the "best price" he could get from me. The work his son did was shoddy and he was livid when I wanted it replaced.
Had another elder buy from me, only to have him delay payment for 8 months and of course, can you charge your brother interest?
I try to avoid selling anything to a witness these days; it is always trouble.
Trained a brother who then moved away, then when he moved back into town interviewed with me only to go to work for my direct competitor; I found out from someone else first.
Been told by my employees that they will NOT miss their assembly; I guess it is ok for me to miss mine and make a different one, huh?
Been given ATTITUDE up the arse about working for churches, when it plainly is a conscience issue according to my local elders and that ridiculous QFR two years back. A back stabbing elder from another state called my elders about working in churches, lacking the courage to talk to me personally. My elders just shrugged and said it is really a conscience issue.
As for working with DF'd ones: NO elder or body of elders will ever tell me who can work for me. I have kept people on who were df'd, and actually hired one who was being interviewed when df'd. The elders told me to my face that anyone who hires a df'd person has NO spiritual appreciation. I said they were welcome to their opinion. (I did remind them that to fire, or refuse to hire, on religious grounds is unethical and ILLEGAL.)
Stupid cultish small minded controlling bastards.
