Anonymity

Way back in the day some 'Old Timers' took their Anonymousness pretty damned seriously.

:mrgreen:

That might've been a UK A.A meeting. I've heard UK A.A. - in the past - was accused of being so anonymous that newcomers couldn't find where the meetings were; though I don't know how much truth is in that.

Anyway, it's not like that now; thankfully! :mrgreen:

Cute. But it would have been funnier if they had had paper bags over their heads with holes cut out for the eyes.

I do not even know if it was indeed an AA group. When I saw the photo I thought it could be posted in a recent Anonymity discussion we've had but then decided to post here instead since I already have two reprimands for bad behavior. :D

Years ago, a friend and I decided to see what an AA meeting was all about. We were there for quite a few minutes before we realized it was a meeting for agoraphobics. We were too embarrassed to walk out!!
