Oh dear. I have a customer - Dave - who gives me frequent and profitable work sometimes. I'm retired but am happy to do a little bit part-time.
This morning I called to rectify some work he'd had done by a not-so expert "tradesman". On the way out he offered me a down-loaded copy of the latest Watchtower! I said no thanks, not for me. He persisted anyway, but I remained adamant and in the end told him that I wouldn't have JW material in the house. I told him that my parents had been JW's and that the religion had torn my family apart.
And then he told me that he'd been disfellowshipped back in 1980!
And then he told me that he was now going to all the meetings and had applied to be reinstated on 2 occasions and been turned down each time.
I said that the organisation was run by men wearing big Rolex's, is that where he wanted to be? He responded that he was going to try for reinstatement one more time and if it was still no he wouldn't bother with the witnesses anymore.
The guy is loaded financially. I wonder why he bothers?
