So that was a "shocker". I was not able to attend the meeting. I had a more important one with my other apostate friends in the area. When planning for that week, I told my wife that we were undecided as to get together on Tuesday (meeting day) or Wednesday. I told her I would prefer Tuesday because the flea market is open on Wednesday nights and they sell some bomb ass tacos there and my kids love to go. So she said "Then what is the big deal, go on Tuesday and I'll go to the meeting". I said "I am just really curious to know what this anus has to say. He is the biggest company man CO I've seen in years". So she laughed and said she would take notes for me.
To my surprise, when she showed me the notes there it was. He closed the talk by saying there was no growth in the circuit. He yelled up to one of the elders asking what was the attendance for the night. One hundred and thirty four said the elder. The CO said "wow... that is quite a bit above the average 118 that you normally have... that means there is quite a bit of people here today that would normally not come to the meeting... Shame, shame, shame (wife said he was poking forth with this finger at the audience while he said that.)"
