I posted a Reg story a long time ago, but it's buried in my many posts...
I was a Div 6 Public Reg and was regging I believe it was about 10pm or so on a Wed night. It was one of my own Bodyroutes (people you literally convince to come in off the street to take a free personality test, watch a free video, etc).
Anyways: I was regging her (and had been for about an hour and had a couple other tag teaming me (other Reg's helping you convince the person to sign up on a course or counselling).
The newbie said they didn't have any money. After more regging, she finally said that she didn't have money with her, but had some at home. My Senior suggested I go home with her (she said she lived within walking distance) to get the money.
So we (just me and her and her kid..about 8 yrs old) begin walking about 10:30 pm or so at night to her house. It was about 8 or so blocks away.
She walks up to her apartment (in a building with other apts) and tells me to wait that she enters her apt from the back door and she'll let me in her front door in a moment.
So I do. I wait.
And wait some more.
I do knock on the door she has me waiting in front of, but a complete stranger answers the door and doesn't know the person who I ask for.
So I knock on a couple other doors, and either no one answers or they're strangers who do not know the person I spoke of.
I finally find a kind person to let me use their phone.
I call my Org, but it's after 11:30 pm and the main switchboard's closed.
So I keep calling.
Finally my fellow Senior answers, but I'm all turned around and don't know where I'm at. lol.
Finally, I start walking in what I think is the direction back to my Org. But It seems I'm walking way too long and it doesn't come into view. I'm sure I find a street sign and impart this info, but my Senior doesn't recognize it.
I finally find a payphone and call the Org (collect, I think). Finally my Senior takes the Org's Dianetics 'book van and they drive the streets until they find me.
It was really weird.
The things we did for our Stats and crap, huh?
This made me laugh! Served you right!! When I was a newbie, the phones were shut off probably bec. they didn't pay the bill so the regges dragged me out to a phone booth to call and elderly relative and ask my grandparents for thousands of dollars. I didn't get any money. I should have led them to a fake apt. and left them waiting there!! Had I only known that trick!
Hey Stat, I'd say making Section A of a C/S 53 read on a "tour" with a reg, then making the poor person by an intensive for an "Int Handling"...is regging!
I know I did that more times than I care to remember. Oh, the crap we do to get GI!!
