BluesBrother I like your style!
The secretary at one congregation was almost always behind in his paperwork and the BOE assigned me to be his assistant (on top of the other work they gave me as an MS).
It was my job to call up people who still didn't hand in there reports by the 4-5. The secretary could generate the list but didn't have the time to make the calls. The amount of missing reports varied from about 5-15 each month. I hated that job and could only imagine how much of a pain in the @$$ the publishers must have considered me to be. I didn't want to look like I was some nosy organizational flunky and said that the secretary didn't have anything for them and to call him if they had something to report. But they almost always would just tell me the numbers and to pass it on for them. Quite a few sounded like they were pulling numbers out of thin air.
