While shopping, I ran into a JW (female). Initially, she was very excited to see me ( she lovingly embraced me with a welcoming hug). Now, here is the funny part!
JW, so where are you at (meaning which congregation I attend).
Me, I’ve decided to take break,
JW, oh ( smile instantly turned into a frown), So, when are you coming back?
Me, I’m not sure that I am! I am in a happy place in my life; not ready to give that up!
JW, while walking away from me; don’t stay away too long
Me, I’ll probably return when I’m ready to me miserable again. End of conversation. At the end, there was no such nice talking too you, hope to see you soon. Nothing, she just walked away. How rude! I guess, the love or likeness is really conditional.
This interaction became very uncomfortable for me. Any advise on the best way to handle a situation like this in the future?

I usually announce that I'm absolutely not attending meetings because they're a cult, or something shockingly similar. Then I grab their hand and make a huge public spectacle of finding out how they are and they're such a good friend...blah blah blah..! They are always caught off guard and are required to make some sort of response even when they aren't supposed to, and you can see the guilty look on their faces!!! Priceless! Sometimes I rub it in.. aren't you glad to see me? Lol.

Thehotone4u2: I did the survey! The premise was that JW's are 16 times more likely to suffer from mental illness, and this is caused by social stress at work. I opine that it's because the JW's attract mentally ill people!
