So I was staying with my mother during a divorce, in Missouri. A VERY small town. Honestly, there's one fence, it doesn't even surround a yard! Occasionally you'll see a couple of women talking over the fence! Dogs bark through it instead of going around it! But that's not the story.
I went to the store/hardware/storage place to pick up a bottle of gin for my mother. (no kidding!!!) The store clerk, who I never met before in my entire life (I SWEAR!!! JUST SHUT UP!!!!) asked me how my date was with "Linda"! So I said, "Ok, I'll bite, who's Linda?" She got this conspiratorial look on her face and shot a knowing glance to a couple of other people in the store! "Right!" she said!! I told her I honestly have no idea who she's talking about!! She didn't believe me!!
The next meeting, I was invited into the back room to answer to the elders about my "date with Linda"!! I was read scriptures about adultery and scriptural grounds for ending a marriage! My denials fell on deaf ears! I yelled at them for making crap up about me again! They didn't believe that either!
So I got home and asked my mother. My sister was there. They declared that they were trying to set up a blind date with "Linda" but that Linda declined! Apparently they forgot to tell me about it before they told the rest of the world!
I never met Linda. I have no idea who that is to this day. I can guarantee that there's some file somewhere kept by an uber elder/secretary that claims I went on a date when I was not scripturally free with a worldly girl!!
I'm also sure they sent proof of that to the next congregation, where I only attended one time. Good luck with that.

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!
