Maybe if they could use capital letters and punctuation they could find a job. In your case try WalMart and remember. WalMart is like Devils Island. There is no escape. Ha ha.

Well, well, should have known that this idiot would be one of the first ones to run his mouth about the subject yet again, something he knows absolutely nothing about. Time and time again, this s_hit stick has nothing good to say about the American working man because HE had NO skill and ability and found it much simpler and easier to push a pencil and become part of the problem as OVERHEAD in a company. What productive contributions did you ever make to a company, or to mankind for that matter? Slugs like you are what is wrong with the world today.........all mouth and no action. I doubt you ever amounted to much of anything, yet come on here and hide behind your little computer screen and write crap to make yourself feel like a man in a feable attempt to compensate for your complete lack of testicular fortitude!

Spoken like the true mill rat button pusher / technician you are. What did I do? I made a lot of money and that is all it takes to make a Johnie Time card hate me but I could care less because you are just a nickel dime bum and your post shows it.

No ideas needed to be exchanged. Why are there so few makers of typewriters and corsets these days? Because the jobs got shipped off to the third world after unions killed the companies? No, because advances in technology and changes in fashion have made both a lesser commodity. The market for social stationery (especially high-end, custom engraved stationery) is in decline, and will continue to decline. There is little that you or Johnnie Time Card can do about that.

deserves Not, capitalization
of his name nor his inflated ego
he is a little man
with a little organ
with fantacies of grandeur
and enjoys picking on
all others who knew
their geneology
as he was more than likely
concieved in a republican restroom
on Wall Street
by paying customers

Want a come back. You are mill rat and soon you will be a mill rat without a mill.Why do the widget makers always think they know how to run the mill when in reality the average mill rat couldn't manage a paper route ?

The above seems obcessed with his alleged importance, or maybe he shows a mental disability in attempting to demean others.

A very sick person.

Could this person explain why employees are unimportant and irrelevant in an industry ?

Does this person believe that an insulting boss can perfrm all related tasks?

A very strange philosophy.

There is no explanation for this kind of twisted thought process! This is simply a case of management mentality where they live in the illusion that everything revolves around them and exists because of them. The sad thing is, that the general concensus among these management types is that a rude, insulting, ego-maniac is the best kind of boss. As far as a boss performing all related tasks, their philosphy is that a boss does not need to know anything about the job what so ever as it is only their job to manage workers, not actually do the job. With this kind of mentality, it is no wonder the American manufacturing environment is in the condition it is in today.
