I thought it was Maxwell House. MY favorite all time line in a movie was spoken by black actor Roscoe Lee Brown (Mr. Nightlinger) in John Wayne's movie "The Cowboys" when he told that old hooker Madame "I have the inclination and the where with all, but I just don't have the time" LOL... Now that is hard working.
Well, I think money wise in those days actors weren't paid well. I agree though with that line about the Madame. Seems another Ol cowboy used it before. Just can't remember who. All I know, it sure was unexpected and comical to hear the actor say those words. I thought was that rehearsed or were those his word. LOL.

I was 15 and moved to Philly from Texas. I had a pretty strong accent and had never been out of the state before so I didn't know what to expect socially. On my first day of school I had the bad judgement to wear a Dallas Cowboys jersey thinking people will just laugh. Throughout the day, I got a few dirty looks and a few "you've got balls" comments. Last period goes by and I'm waiting for my bus out front when this huge guido comes up and starts talking shit. I tell him to piss up a rope and he knocks me out in one punch. He gets suspended and I'm told not to antagonize things.

Time goes by and he's a constant pain in my life bullying me around on a weekly basis. He outweighed me by about 75 pounds thanks to his steroid use and had a temper to match. I got my ass kicked many times thanks to him and his manipulations. We graduate and I don't see him for a few years.

I had always been into cooking and decided that's what I wanted to do with my life so I went to culinary school and started working in the industry. I worked my way up the ladder quickly thanks to focus, a willingness to sacrifice a social life and hard work. A few years later I was the executive chef of a small bistro and we had a policy of taking a prisoner on work release from the county jail as part of a rehabilitation program. The owner was a great guy who grew up without guidance and made some bad decisions early in life that got him thrown in jail for a few years. He got out, got a job as a dishwasher where the owner of that place saw some promise and took him under his wing giving him the life lessons he never got from his family and so on. This was his way of paying forward what he got. We had gone through a few guys that seemed to do well and so far the program was working out well. One day we were slated to get a new guy and guess who walks in the door... He doesn't notice me at first but then is introduced to me as his direct boss. The owner starts to introduce me but I interrupt saying that we already know each other quite well and need no introductions. I told the owner about our history not leaving any details out and he asks me what I want to do. I tell him give me a few minutes in the walk in (large walk in refrigerator that is soundproof) with him and it's all good. I take him in there and ask him why he was in jail and where he was in his head. I also told him how I would treat him was up to him and that this could go well or he could turn right around and go right back to jail. He ended up breaking down and spilling his heart out. Between drugs, an abusive household and having no real friends in school due to a total lack of social skills, he had no idea how to have a real relationship. He told me that the days he would kick my ass were the days after his old man would beat him when he got drunk. His life just went downhill after school and he ended up getting busted for dealing. I told him to clean himself up and I'd do my best to show him how to get his shit together. He ended up being one of the hardest workers I have ever seen. Five years later he ended up being my sous chef. He has his own restaurant now and we guest chef at each other's place all the time. I wouldn't trade his friendship for the world.

<quoted text> The Ol bird can be nice if she wants. It's the rude behavior. I take her shopping several times a month. Yes, I've had to distance myself from her for sanity's sake. I like to stay positive and focused and her muttering sidetrack me. So, I'm taking care of myself and mine. Sounds like you have a bit of that phooey in your life also. Good luck to you as well. I'll survive. LOL.And no, it doesn't matter to tell her she's wrong. I can admit; she can't. I'm just afraid of losing her son over a future battle if one incurs. But I'll not push the ox before the cart.'fraid I'd lose the battle...Distance is best, I agree;)
Oh yeah, I have family drama too! More than my share in my opinion! lol I have been done crappy for a long time but this past year broke the camel's back if you know what I mean. Our thing is that I take care of everybody when they need it and have for years and years BUT when it comes time for me to need a little help (with something that is actually ALL our responsibility), too bad it's all still on me to take care of. I just got totally fed up and when I let it be known you would have thought I was the most evil person in the world! I sure do wish I had set some boundaries years ago. It might have saved some hard feelings that I really hate having.
Think hard about what's going on in your life (even the little things) and choose your moves wisely. I wish somebody had told me that about 30 years ago. lol

I meant modern Telly shows have become unrealistic and not in the least interesting. Well, I guess, we got our piece of raw, western cowboy right here on the forum, AW. That hat and those moccasins now that's the real deal. And Gentlemanly to boot no acting involved. Hehe.
Oh yeah, I think AW would be a real catch for somebody... but shhh don't tell him I said that. lol I know it, I don't like shows/movies that couldn't possibly ever happen in real life. I like realistic stuff, it makes me think. I guess overall, some of my favorite shows are the Madea movies. She acts like I want to. hehehe The way Uncle Joe acts kind of reminds me of my boyfriend. lol But he's not that perverted thank God.:)

Now that is a great story! You never know why some people act the way they do. Probably most of the time there is something behind it. Somebody ought to make your story into a movie.

Old women who have been wronged when their young doesn't mean they have an excuse for rude, hurtful behavior. My life hasn't been the best in world; my left when I was 15; I was abused by an ex husband. She's an ex Ol hippy that made her illicit drug choices in life that warped her brain. She'll not be unkind to my son from a previous marriage; it's not fair to him or I with all I do for her. Children are innocent. We have a choice in who and what we want to be; you don't turn around and spit on a good thing. Sorry Harry. I understand, she had a difficult life, but your friend changed his direction. Her path leads to Hell. Sorry.

Oops. Mother left when I was 15. I gave up my youth. Mother-in- law was having fun skiing and living a full. And the irony of it all, she knows exactly what she says and does. Rubs in her comments. Good day. Gotta think positive. Beautiful day and the birds are singing:)

The only thing funny about 2 clowns with big feet is that they keep tripping over their own big feet and falling into self-made post holes.

Attention ladies. Check, check, check it out:

You've likely been told you're beautiful, hot, etc. by men and boys from a young age. You've seen men and boys blatantly check out your body from a young age. Men way too old to be looking at you that way saying things they shouldn't be saying. And while the media bombards you with the message that unless you're a 5'10", 115 pound waif, you're fat; unless you wear Maybellene, you're ugly; men will tell you and show you that you are, in fact, attractive. It's been going on so long that it's just annoying now, but it happens.

Now, imagine if no man ever looked at you your whole life. No man ever told you how pretty you look today. You can count on one hand how many times a man has looked at you or complimented you in that way. But, dig this, the media's still telling you you're unattractive. The difference now is that you have constant reinforcement that they're right, they're absolutely right. No man truly finds you attractive, your boyfriends and lovers just told you you are because that's what they're supposed to do.

That's what being a man is like. Women don't tell us we're attractive out of the blue. Women don't stare at us. And the media tells us that without P90X we'll forever remain unattractive. And we don't receive any contrary experiences. Girlfriends and lovers tell us we're attractive because that's what we want to hear, not because it's true.

You did nothing but use some of the same lingo as others. Try being yourself, it can be much fun to be unique.
