What Are Ways You Can Tell Someone is a Jehovah’s Witness?

    People walking from house to house that appear to be doing the moonwalk. Movement in the legs but taking forever to get to next house.

    (Supposedly Michael Jackson got his inspiration for doing the moonwalk when going door to door with pioneers when he was still a teenager).

    Rub a Dub

    Their was an Elder in the last KH I attended that said " you can be walking down the street and you can tell a witness by their Kingdom smile " I kid you not.

    He was a nut case through & through .

    The twisted closed lips when they hear the words, “Thank you anyway for calling but my (Church) minister takes good care of us”.

    Those unempathic lips are a dead giveaway of JW-ness, holding back barely concealed contempt for others’ religious beliefs.

    • When you see a car group of women/children all dressed in Sunday meeting clothes during the week.
    • Women who are in thrift stores with below the knee dresses/skirts on, buying more below the knee to the floor skirts/dresses.
    • Children who look bored/anxious/embarrassed as they walk behind their mother dressed up in hot weather.
    • Anyone who is trying to steer the conversation to how bad the world is. I mean grasping at anything so they can bring up the "solution"

    When you text your sister because you hear she's had a heart/angina attack and she says 'thank you for your concern'. Thank you for your concern! I hate that JW expression. How about fuck, I'm scared, I nearly died!

    A couple of years ago my church ( Anglican , in case some one at the back has managed to miss that ) had a mad rush of collective blood to the head and started taking little leaflets out to all the homes in the village . Just saying that there is a local church and explaining all the things that go on , Knit and Natter , The Ark ( a play group for preschool children ) and other bits . Two of my friends knocked on a door and jokingly said " Don't worry , we're not JWs " to which the lady replied " l know that , you aren't dressed smartly enough " So it seems that anyone can spot a JW at a hundred paces . No wonder so many doors never get opened .

    The frumpy attire on the women/girls...long skirts...."sensible"shoes....men in suits...Ill fitting typically....and many look constipated.

    The attire, book bags, and carts are significant clues...

    Really??, the moonwalk is kind of a fast move, the pioneer walk is a slow, drag your feet so we can count the ten minutes it takes us to walk from one house to another.
