Happy Thanksgiving Regs!

We had a very excellent meal considering it was all store-bought, pre-made stuff from Publix or from a can. My mom is real good at doctoring. I barely had to do a thing; I took the kids to the pool for most of the day while she got the food prepped. Step-bro and his fam traveled a whole 3 floors up and we all squished around the table. It was surprisingly nice.

And Nunu discovered that she likes pumpkin pie.
We have a local ice cream shop that makes the best pumpkin ice cream. I wish you lived closer so we could get the kids together for dessert!

Sounds like a fun Thanksgiving that the family will look back on fondly for many years!

So, what are you doing with the boys today?
Well, they both have colds, so if the youngest is up for it, I'll take him skating at 11 (open skate 11-1) then pick up culver's (Yummy Midwestern burger place) for the three of us. The 10yo doesn't want to go.

They're blowing their noses and coughing, so unless that slows down, I won't take the 5yo skating, because he won't be able to blow his nose with all his gear on!

So for now, they're watching Phineas & Ferb. In a bit, the 10yo will play xbox and I'll play war or Sorry with the youngest.

So, doing something totally legal is reason enough for her to be fired?

Dude, you talk about wanting to bang your cousins teenage friends, what kind of employee are you?

Teachers are not allowed to have a sex life? Their teachers, not nuns. What they do in their bedroom is non of my(or my kids) business. Bet you would have a different view if the teacher was a man. Aren't atheletes role models too? How about firemen or a cop? Should all of those peeps be fired if they make a porno?

You know, for someone who is supposedly for smaller govt, you sure seem to think that govt has every right to go into peoples bedrooms and dictate what is allowable.

Yes it should. A person's personal life is a ponderous instrumentality of their character. And their character is a prominent acumen of what kind of employee they are. There's a reason some companies don't hire felons. There's a reason some companies have drug tests.
There's a story I heard a couple weeks ago about a teacher getting fired for making a porno. Was she wrong to be fired or is THAT the kind of role model you want for your children?
Is it wrong to fire your employee for screaming at and giving the finger to dead soldiers, or is THAT the woman you want propagandizing your company?

Had a good Tday. Was just myself, so had a small 10lb bird deep fried, I actually used the gibletts and stuff to make gravy even though I only had stove top stuffing. Started drinking wine way too early, and was pretty toasted by 7. I soaked the wood in the peanut oil and had a kick ass fire. I took a picture on my phone and sent it to someone I did not know. They called me back and were like WFT??? That was funny.

Are you still on Lindsay Stone, the girl at Arlington Nat'l Cemetery? No one one poked into her bedroom or private life and the government was not involved.. She posted it on You Tube and it is her private employer who is ticked.

Public conduct, Race, public conduct has consequences different that private conduct and the government is not at all involved.

If you did not intrinsically agree with that, you would be posting here using your real name

For the 1st 10 years we were in this house, our back fence neighbor lived with an adult son who did BBQ like that every weekend, all year. It was like having the Olympic torch over the back fence. When he died, his siblings had teh funeral lunch at teh house and lit the torch one last time.

Did you just pick a random number to send teh picture to? Did you just guess they could receive a photo?

And she or her coworker posted it on FB. Idiots.

My boss fired a young woman for inappropriate behavior in the building parking lot. The girl tried to argue about it. "But I wasn't on company property or on the clock!" My boss felt that it was more about poor judgment and choices being made.

(Her boyfriend met her after work and they LAID DOWN ON THE HOOD OF HIS CAR AND MADE OUT. At 5 p.m. when everyone could see as they want to work. People in the building watched from the windows, incredulous over the behavior.)

I'm not saying I agree with everything edog wrote, but the difference that I see in the Lindsey Stone situation is that she was on a business trip with her company LIFE - Living Independently Forever. It is a company that helps adults with mental disabilities live as independently as possible. In breaking the rules as the site, she was breaking the code of conduct for her company.

If a teacher had sex with someone during the schoolday, I would expect repercussions. Cops and firefighters are monitored very closely now about what they do off the clock, online, who they associate with because it is recognized that their off duty activities can affect their ability to do their jobs effectively.

There are lots of legal things that you can do, but not on your employer's clock/dime.

BTW, Lindsey Stone has now been fired.

I think at this point, the company had to fire her, because she was an embarrassment and a liability. I think it's odd that considering what her job was, she could be so blatantly disrespectful like that.

I hope this was a huge learning experience for her.

I don't think I ever made that remark, but who I want to bang has no bearing on what kind of employee I am.

I never made that claim so will not defend it.

I wouldn't want John Holmes or Ron Jeremy teaching my children either.

Ask Michael Vick. And many jurisdictions don't permit cops to be bouncers at strip clubs.

Agreed. If you're a teacher, especially, you realize your public conduct does have consequences. If you don't realize that, you're in the wrong business.

Unfortunately, people like that like to blame others for their problems, in a lot of instances.

Kind of ironic that someone who works for a company called "LIFE" would scream at people for being dead.

Sometimes when you work closely with people of disability you also encounter ones who milk the system 2hich can lead to frustartion.

If you read her excuses, she wasn't thinking about where she was, but saw the sign and was poking fun at it - not the soldiers. I'm sure many people would have been tempted to do the same, but they took the sign in context and made their decisions accordingly.

Not so ironic when you consider that death is the exact opposite of life! Life and death have been at odds, practically since the beginning of time. It's really quite a rivalry.

What are you babbling about? Did you even bother to read the post I replied to? Mutt was the one who brought the bedroom into the conversation.

How can you say that who YOU want to bang has no bearing on what kind of employee you are, but for the teacher it does? You're talking out of both sides of your mouth (again)

You have mentioned more than once your attraction to younger women. But deny it if you like.

I did not say a cop as a bouncer, stay on track and quit deflecting.

Every time you rile against gay marriage, you are inviting govt into peoples bedrooms. If you cant see that your dumber that you pretend to be.
