    Hey you were there then? I was at Flag in training on the tenth floor at the FH and several of the mission staff were there training - including Dean - who was the tall guy with the beard - I think he was training to be the ED? I remember them handing out maps with "Republic of Texas" on them. Dean used to shout out whenever i spoke that he "couldn't understand a damned word that guy is saying". LOL

    Vicki was - in the immortal English word - a complete tosser.

    dean was a tyrant in many ways. when i first joined staff her wasn't at the mission. maybe vicki played the good cop. i liked her. when she and rick were leaving she wanted me to come with them to open a mission in houston. i had a lot of "wog" friends in dallas that, in the back of my mind i was pretty sure i was going to be needing fairly soon, so i stayed put. sure enough i woke up one morning and all my belongings, (one steamer trunk) were out on the sidewalk.

    as is the way in $cn. all kinds of shit was going on behind the scenes that staff were ignorant of, dean eventually got a bunch of the bigger guys to be his body guards. word was someone was trying to kill him :omg:

    Thanks, smurfy. The real bitch of it is that the vast majority of Scientologists are really nice, cool people. They just operate off the wrong set of rules.

    Oh, I'd say that's relevant! Does anyone know what she's up to these days? What exactly happened with that whole thing? What did she do?

    With a little help from my friends here, I did find out that she and Rick are still together, somewhere in Texas, doing some business thingie. For all I know, Vicki simply tried to be ethical and be in scientology at the same time. That is enough to make you publick enemy number one in the cult. And Rick was awesome too. That is my story, from when I knew them, and I am sticking to it;) After all these years, I am not able to quite wrap my brain around how Dean came out to be a hero and Vicki came out to be a villain. HEY! I am still looking forward to more of your story! It sounds like you spent a good deal of your childhood, goin' on down the road. Covina for gradeschool? That was a long way to go everyday... Sheeesh. This is for you;) :hifive: "Them two dollah shoes hurt your feet." Maybe that is why they told you to bring plenty of socks;)

    What's a "tosser"?

    (Sorry. I was born in Brooklyn.)

    God, I don't remember. It was a hundred years ago. Someone told me.

    The only thing I remember, personally, is that your dad was a total hottie. :p No wonder he wound up in RTC. They always went for the good looking ones.

    Sorry. I'm sure that wasn't what you wanted to know. :eyeroll:

    Yeah, my mum hated that too! :biggrin:

    Love your posts, how it was. We are on different sides of the world, different ages and cultures and yet the stories have the same elements. It makes me angry, sad and frustrated at what happens to families ... keep talking mate.

    Vicki was a pain when she was IG in RTC - she just was an absolute little DM ass kisser and a nasty little thug. When she blew she then made an affidavit about how bad the cofs was and then when she got nailed by the cofs she recanted it and said she was lieing.

    She is a pusillanimous little git imHO - but that does not mean that you did not have a totally different experience with her.

    To most scientologists Dean was a headbanger. Vicki turned into a total plonker.

    There is also a personal reason I detest this woman so much - she did something I consider unforgiveable. as iot deals with someone else's privacy thats about as far as I will go.

    well, i understand that. i admit to be totally cluless back then. i feel like i was just almost getting on my feet like a real person, and then somehow landed in the mission, on staff... looking back, i am still am not that sure what happened. but dean was really cruel to me, for no good reason...meh. i am just glad, or at least i hope, nothing like that will ever happen to either of my daughters.

    My kids were a big part what got me out of Scn. My oldest is very brilliant, and would have had CMO recruiters salivating. When she was young, I started thinking about the kind of pressures that she would be put under to join the Sea Org, and the ethics shit that would come down on my wife and me if we said one word of discouragement about the idea.

    This lead to me thinking "Why would I want to be part of a group, from which I would have to fear this?"

    That's a Britishism too. Both have a meaning similar to "fuckhead" or "asshole" in American usage.
