I wasn't insulted.<quoted text>
My bad. Didn't realize its an insult.
Lots of Germans in the thread. My maternal grandmother's parents came over. Baumann. She even did the family genealogy in 1970, pretty interesting stuff and long before the Internet.
I had forgotten if you mentioned you were from Oregon. Very different lifestyle, huh? I would have loved to have stayed on Maui, probably not practical since the jobs must all be in the hospitality industry.
My cousin on my Dad's side did a search back when roots was popular. Interesting things she found, but my last name only went back to a French-Canadian trapper that didn't know how to read and write, so when he came across the border, they wrote the name with a, most likely, completely wrong spelling.
The hospitality jobs are not usually very good. Are you fishing for my occupation? LOL
Denny showed a good understanding of the job situation for locals here and hit the nail on the head in a concise way. Although, if I said that to some locals, they would probably call me a f#@*ing HAOLE!lol
