  1. HE WAS ONLY ABLE TO FUNCTION AS LONG AS EVERYONE ELSE DID HIS BIDDING FOR HIM. PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TO BE WILLING TO PAY ALL HIS BILLS, CLEAN HIS HOUSE, DO ALL TYPES OF CHORES FOR HIM AND NOT HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS TEMPER TANTRUMS. HE WAS FOOLED INTO THINKING HE COULD BE THE CEO OF SOMETHING. LITTLE DID HE KNOW THAT PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF TWI DON'T PAY YOU TO TURN THEM INTO INDENTURED SERVANTS AND SLEEP WITH THEIR WIVES. HE WAS A SPOILED BRAT. EVEN TWI COULDN'T BE DUMB ENOUGH TO SET HIM UP LIKE THAT AGAIN. HE DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO BRING. NO MORE LONG LIVE KING LCM.
  2. Interesting question. It got me thinking. I have to say I have very fond memories of my first WOW year. I actually was put in a nice family with good people. (I did notice others didn't fare as well.) We had a good time for the most part and the local leadership at the time were nice to us. It was really fun. Now my second WOW year was a different story. I coord a family with a very mentally unstable man in it, and two other emotionally disturbed people. They were all three very sweet and loving, but they were an incredible amount of responsibility. I noticed that it was important to our local leadership that our "stats" looked good. Our accomplishments were exagerated. And we were put under unreasonable and unnecessary pressure. We actually did run two classes, no one we witnessed to stayed with it. But I always go back to my children when I start regretting things. I wouldn't have met my beautiful husband or have the house full of wonderful children that I do now. BTW-whatever happened to C@rmin and the R*pps*?
  3. I was thinking about the time my FC called me to find out if I was using the internet. (A long time ago when leadership first started to freak out about the internet) As we all know, the internet exposed a lot of things about twi. They did not like losing control and they really didn't like no longer being the only ones who got to have a say in matters. Can anyone think of anything else that turned their world upside down and made them tow the line? Just wondering.
  4. I almost didn't open this thread because just seeing those words "making it your own" made me want to barf. In my experience it meant mindlessly parrotting a huge ego maniac and being too afraid to express an honest opinion. It was used in the same way "you're not renewing your mind" was if you dared to disagree with said ego maniac. So if you didn't see it their way, you hadn't made it your own. If you disagreed you weren't renewing your mind. Good thread but I gotta go barf now and "renew my mind" to all those lovely memories. LOL.
  5. Yeah, I feel the same way. It's definitely not something I look back on and feel proud about. If someone were to say something like that in my presence now, I would do something about it. But then again, I no longer associate with those kind of nut jobs so things like that don't come up anymore. From Nottawayfer: (Quite honestly, I'm surprised the whack job didn't spew off about the blind girl who came to the STS faithfully with her black lab seeing eye dog.) I hope nobody ever got to her and that she is OK.
  6. OMG. I remember hearing things like that from him and other WC leaders. It makes me sick to think about it. He also hated handicapped people. He ranted and raved about being "forced" to have to comply with handicapped accessible issues. (Maybe he was raging about the Americans w/ disability act) He also flipped out when a deaf Miss America won the crown. He called her retarded. (She wasn't) He screamed about that during lunch one day, deeply resenting that a hearing impared person was being admired. I remember being really mad about it, but of course I didn't dare say anything. If people in the ministry were dying it's probably because they were so stressed out with all the death threats from leadership. OMG!
  7. I remember him starting to say it after he split with Chris Geer. If I'm remembering correctly, a lot of departing leaders at that time were given money and cars, which lcm later resented. Funds were short, people had to move in on top of each other at HQ. The t.t.t.t. (temper tantrum tithing teachings) began. Then I remember the "tithe" ten percent was not enough. If you were really committed then you would give "at least" fifteen percent. And so on and so forth......
  8. How dare he threaten the lives of people. I wonder if anyone ever told him to shut up. Those closest to him only seemed to encourage his insanity.
  9. I was embarrassed for a long time. But I agree with Waysider, it is complicated so I don't get into it. I think what really embarrasses me at times is that we rented for so long, and spent so much money on it that we didn't build any equity. We passed up some great opportunities and chose a financially unsound twi lifestyle. So it's like we are just starting out in life. I feel kind of old to just be starting out, and it all sounds so stupid now I'm embarrassed to talk about it with people who won't understand.
  10. lcm really was terrible at knowing what people needed. Terrible businessman wasn't he? Good thing he didn't go into marketing. I never pay attention to ads, but now that I think about it- they usually are about something we've recently looked at. Makes sense the ads are context sensitive. Explains all the sky diving, motor cycle, golf, horse and tennis ads our family gets.
  11. Yes, now that I remember she did play them at the family tables. She also dressed the part. It was a long time ago. I'd forgotten they were called family tables. Funny about the ads, I didn't plan it that way. :)
  12. Does anyone remember a lady who played the bag pipes at the ROA? I was wondering where she is now. She was very good at it and was very sweet.
