I gotta say I'm loving their head-down-we-gotta-shun-you interactions.
Yesterday at the hospital I was headed out when in comes an ex-elder with his sadly ill mother in law in a wheelchair. Since he was wheeling her in, I held the door for him, and shined a big smile both to his MIL and to him. She looked at me with very open eyes, (she's never been a JW), and seemed to appreciate the friendly favor. He on the other hand bent his neck to the side and his head way down.
I fixed my gaze on him and gave him a friendly "Hey, how are ya?"
He raised his eyes just so, but his head stayed down, and he muttered a run together 'Hayadoin" as brief and barely audible as he could.
It must suck big-time to have to acknowledge a DF'ed apostate's presence in front of someone else who would be shocked at his shunning of someone who just did you a favor and greeted you warmly.
Wasn't there something about "putting coals on someone's hear"?
I looked up at the bright sunshiny sky and exclaimed "Whatta nice day!" loudly enough for them to hear me well as the door self closed slowly behind us.
What a nice day indeed. I'm loving it whenever I get to be all hyper-friendly and they quail and shade away.
