This will probably be a long thread.
We all remember those favors. Back then we wouldn't do a particular favor to anybody, but because the person was a Witness we did. And remember how bad they paid us back?
A brother from Texas was moving to L.A. and my mother invited him to our house to save some money since he got a new job here. His wife and 2 teenage boys came later. Now my mom really did it. To make room for him, she threw my 4 sisters out of their bedroom to the living room--with me! Appearentaly this didn't bother my parents. What bothered them was that he broke our glass kitchen table when he was getting up He left my dad alone to pick up the pieces. The good thing is that overtime he began feeling embarrased walking to the living room at early times of the morning to go to work. He moved in with a brother from another congregation.
Now, my mom claims that his wife wouldn't let her husband hang around with her because of jealousy and thats why she began to talk to her very little and then to the point where they just didn't like each other. But for the sake of the meetings, there was a simple greeting.
But apparently they didn't learn from this. Because my mom's brother-in-law was Witness she also invited him in. This time he slept in the living room. Althogh staying for several months here, he never did contribute anything to the house while he was working. He finally moved out, and then the wife appeared in the picture. Things happenned. They really argued one night and he ended up saying "We have nothing to be grateful of". And mom's sister with her mouth shut, he said, "**** and I don't want to have any type of a relationship with you" And they left!
So what are some of your experiences?
