I have just been reminded of the sad, sad world that I feel so sorry Jehovah’s Witnesses feel they have to live in, day in, day out.
I saw an Elder where I was working and I was in rather a good mood joking and chatting with work mates and the Elder caught my eye so I smiled at him and said hello naturally as I would do anyone I used to know and hadn’t seen for a while.
His response: - Gives me a sore look and then totally ignores me.
What a sad man!
I am not DF’d or DA’d (not that this is a worthy excuse) all he knows is that I don’t choose to be apart of his religion anymore because I've let it known to extended family how I feel (not from a WTS bashing way, just from a personal -how it made me feel way).
At first I found it rather funny (like a childish slap in the face), it took me by surprise! Then it pissed me off for a very short while (because that’s just plain ignorant behaviour) and then walking home from work I was thinking about it and I just felt sad for him and the small little world he lives in.
Poor man, you could see the self-righteousness in him straight away, his whole persona and his suit.
Glad of the whole experience really. I’m never subject to the witnesses anymore other than my mum and dad. What a kindly reminder to show me what I am not missing.
