    We always had a buffet style breakfast on Sunday mornings where we would go down to the dining room and grab bread, lunch meat, cheese, pickles, condiments, whatever we needed to make a lunch for between meetings and field service. Those of us young single brothers who were lucky enough to have a mini fridge would grab extra and store it away for snacks.

    TheListener Did you ever befriend food service guys? They had keys to the kitchen and could sneak food. Their fridges were always stocked.
    Waiters made great roommates. They had unlimited white dress-shirts pressed, so you could always borrow. They had weird working hours, so less time for housekeepers to snoop in your stuff. They didn't have table assignments, so no table head keeping tabs on them.

    Wives doing all the cleaning, cooking and laundry? Huh? Is this 1918? or 1960? Bethel wives work at Bethel just as hard as their husbands do!

    Good Point.

    I believe TakeOffTheCrown was referring to the GB's wives, not the regular Bethelite wives. Certainly they have enough time to fry some bacon and eggs for their men, don't they? What exactly do GB wives do all day?

    Thank you Late Bloomer for the clarification. Yes, I was referring to the wives of the Governing Body.

    Oh my! What do the Bethel table heads (in the morning) now do? Back when I was at the house, that was a BIG DEAL to be a table head and direct the flow and direction of the food that the waiters brought out to each table!

    Is their main responsibility now to just make sure that you are presented and accounted for, for the morning worship program?
