We've got one of those JW drifters in our congregation.
He's a smart kid, and talented - can sing and act. Was a "star", at least as much as a JW can be, in high school.
He's 22 or 23 now. All his high school buddies have graduated from college, starting their lives & careers.
Him? He went to Bethel for 2 years & then left. He's "pioneering" now, working the odd job and living off his (wealthy) dad's income, driving a "pioneer" car that daddy bought him, living in his parents house, same old room, same old routine. No practical skills at much of anything, and even he he did, he's got no degree.
He's not the physical type to do construction or hard labor. No "office job" company would even glance at him with no degree.
He's stuck at home, living off daddy's money, drifting aimlessly, no real goal in life other than "full time service".
What a waste. He could have done something, even if he remained a JW, by getting some kind of education.
Dad's not far from retirement. God help him & his future spouse if he ever decides to get married. Once daddy retires and the cash flow stops, and he & the spouse find out how much "no college degree" folks earn, it will be a culture shock of epic proportions.
