Water reading witnesses

I had my quarterly water meter reading meeting and heard something noteworthy.

It turns out that there is a "signinng insentive" of $3000 if i can entice another poor soul to do the same job as me. As long as the person is competent, will work more than 2 days a week and sticks around for 6 months, i can cash in.

It's like the baby bonus of the water meter reading world!

But it made me think of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

From what i remember, only 144,000 get to enter heaven (or something along those lines).

Maybe I'm a jerk, but this WOULDN'T encourage me to evangelise at all. Instead i would try to assure that I'm in the chosen number, not someone i recruit to take my spot.

The trouble? I think that evangelistic success bumps you further up the heaven entrance list.

So... When you shut the door on a JW... are they actually that disappointed?

That'd be the Mormons. I might need that job some time soon.

Nope. Definately JW's. The internet (the source of all wisdom and truth) says so... http://adventist.org.au/about_adventists/misconceptions/heaven?SQ_DESIGN_NAME=printer_friendly and http://www.macgregorministries.org/jehovahs_witnesses/144000_anointed.html

I'd take the job and you could split the money with me 33/66. But you need a car, and I have none.
