Bring proof of your swimming training/certification/etc. Judy loves paperwork/proof. Proof of the water outflow stuff, photos of the location, proof that the lifeguard wasn't at their stand, photo of any sign saying that there is a lifeguard, documents documents documents!

My understanding, and OP or others with better knowledge can correct me - is that the JWs truly believe that they're SAVING you by converting you. You will die/not be part of whatever comes next unless you're a JW. They're trying to save you, literally, and spiritually. Also, my understanding is that there is some kind of a points system in that the number of people they save/convert/brainwash, gets them an upgraded seat on the plane to foreverworld or whatever.

I'm late to the AMA, but my question is actually for Shaun. Reading these words knowing Shaun is typing them I wonder how much of your mother's story you knew before this AMA. My dad suffered from a variety of things in his life (nothing like polio) and I was alive for all of it, but it was just part of life, not something I ever sat down and interviewed him about, what it was really like to experience the pain and struggles that he did. You're a good son, Shaun, for being there and supporting your mom with this educational AMA.

I'm in Canada. I'll put an envelope in the mail for $1 going to the same community and it will take four days to get there. Using a specific example, I'll drop an envelope at the post office where the addressee is a P.O. box in that building and it still takes 4 days for them to get it.

I am quite convinced that Canada Post is a storage company and they only ever deliver mail because they've run out of storage space.

No question, just want to express to you and your co-workers appreciation from someone who lives in a remote community for the work you do to fulfill our orders. I've got limited choice locally and not only does Amazon bring a lot of products together to one website, but the shipping costs are also reasonable.

You have no idea the impact you have in your role for people like me.
