maybe this only happens in urban neighborhoods but when i was growing up, many dubs engaged in street work, basically offering the magazines to people on the street as they walked to a destination.. usually it was an area with a lot of foot traffic at a time when many people would travel the area.. did you or people in your congo engage in this and were there any funny stories relating to this practice?

this weekend my wife and i visited with another couple, who although they are inactive, they also invited active witinesses to the their home along with us.
we knew most of the people there and they are aware that we are inactive - no big deal.
however there was one brother who did not know that were are inactive.

i think i?ve been repressing my anger about this and now i need to vent.

in your congregation, did you ever have macho-wannabes on the microphones, strutting up and down the aisles handling the mikes as though they were aka assault rifles?.
we had a few tossers like this.
in fact, i might even have been one of them.... jonty
