You assume that all computers are at home or that this is the 1990's. The internet is everywhere. Mcdonalds, starbucks...heck even lowes
"drink girly drinks at Starbucks"
Half true. I drink coffee black. I don't go for the fat filled stuff. It's pretty damn strong. Try some sumatra.
"drive a Prious or electric car. Humor me.....am I close?"
A compact car but I get decent milage. There's no reason for me to get a hybrid since it runs and it wouldn't be cost effective.
Ft Wayne eh. Maybe Hoosers is your favorite film. Most of your economy there is governmental based. GM is government owned and nearly broke again, the university system and defense contractors.
I'd assume you work at a Do It Best or maybe a Menards now You don't see the depot type. For all I know you could be a okie from the Grapes of Wrath.
Sometimes it is funny to hear people make assumptions about different areas of the country. We make a fair amount of the guns in the country (springfield), healthcare (we have most of the specialists), train much of the military (west point) and pay much of the taxes for the country (especially NJ),
I haven't been called out too many times in my life but fair is fair. nedm - I owe you an apology. I dislike giving excuses or hearing them so I'll offer none.

It is nice to see that you have your defenders, in addition to those who pounce on you. While I disagree with many things you post, you do deserve the same respect that everyone else is entitled too.

To respond to some of the hits on me..,,Haven't been in Indiana too many years so I lay no claim to being a Hoosier. However, it was a good movie. I'm most certainly gainfully employed and have been since my early teens.

As to the PC world....I do indeed hate it but my feelings aren't related to how I manage people. There may be people I dislike or disagree with or don't share my morale values with, but in a work setting, they'll never know because I keep those things to myself. I am someone who doesn't believe that giving everyone a trophy for competing benefits that person. I believe that people need to experience failure, as well as competition. I believe that that is how people grow. and adapt to life's challenges.

Anyway ...nedm again, my apologies..

So he doesn't work at Lowe's any longer. What's the point of that criticism? Can only current Lowe's employees offer their personal reflections on what's going on in Lowe's-land or the world in general and then suddenly that make their observations credible. People in glass houses ....
"People who throw dirt loses ground quickly." Chinese Proverb

Sometimes the really insecure people attack others to keep the attention away from them. Some folks taking them to task don't sound credible either. As my High School Teacher said, "It takes all kinds to make the world go round." It would be real dull if we all looked and thought the same. Differences of opinion are really good-it challenges us to use both sides of our brain and makes us defend our position with facts etc-Opinions are like armpits-we all have two and they both smell.

Sorry, I don't sign in under different names. There's much more people that view this sight then actually write on it.Most of the time when I go here it states 25-50 people are viewing the forum. Like it or not some people defend me.
