I was recently handed the "Return" pamphlet by a local elder. I read it and realized that it doesn't address my personal grievances. I was more moved by the fact that the brother remembered me and cared enough to drop by.
Then I heard that CO week was coming up and it tainted the whole thing. They love making a good report about themselves to the CO!
Curious...I received a text out of the blue from an elder after 4 years fading and not one word...he made some nice remarks then asked if I was ever coming back.
Then I heard from my still-in wife that it was CO visit time...ah that explains it...I never replied to the text until AFTER the CO visit. And the answer was NO!
I too concluded the only reason he was contacting me so was to stroke me off a "one who must be contacted to see if he will return so I can look good in front of the CO" list.
