    When the elders ask "can we come by your place this Sunday after the meeting for a chat?"

    And you say no! :)

    Everything that is said positive about the WT, would sound too good to be true.

    Anything the WT condemns would sound silly and ridiculous.

    Field Service would seem silly and reporting that time even sillier.

    You have a title of publisher but realize that THEY are the publisher and you are their unpaid salesman.

    Weird and not fair.

    The TMS overseer hands you a talk slip and you hand it back and say "Oh, I already graduated."

    When you realise you like the religion more then the religion likes you.


  • FedUpJW

    ...When you start noticing that the answer to every f**king question or problem is "study more" or "pray more"

    Or PAY more? You are not being blessed by gawd because he needs your money and you are not giving enough!

    When you get counseled by an elder for reading the Bible cover to cover without using any WT publications.

    When you wonder why elder Jones is so high ranking when he is on his third wife, most of his kids are high school dropouts, are showing signs of drug usage, or clearly have serious behavioral problems.

    When you simply can not stay awake during Brother Fullovit's public talk no matter how hard you try.

    You are given the job of clearing out the Kingdom Hall library and are told NOT to distribute the old books to any JWs, but ordered to take them to the dump or have someone shred them.

    You realize that there is nothing "fun" about being a JW - even though everyone claims to be so happy as JWs.

    ...when you tell still in JW's that you are truly happier out than in and they seem pissed off and perplexed by your happiness.
