Yeah, but you're a personable guy. I try to avoid human contact as much as possible, and have very little tolerance for stupidity. I would have made the worst cabbie ever.

I wish the local cab companies didn't have so much political influence. It hurts the drivers and the public. My uncle used to work in the industry (limos) and wow, talk about a high stress gig.

I hope the OP did okay. Maybe he'll come back and let us know.

Healthcare IT. I'll keep the systems up and running, but don't call me until you've rebooted.

Im in nursing! I'm into nursing this beer!


So....not only did OP stiff me on the referral bonus...he's Stiffing all of us on the follow up.

Kids these days....ask for help then bail on you!

Kinda makes you not want to help them. Let them tough it out like we had to.

And you're in IT?! What's a pretty rotten attitude.

As an "IT" person, it's insulting to the company/people you serve to feel that way.

You don't get to dictate your feelings- only your actions. I never said that I made remarks that make people feel stupid, did I?

Ignorance, I have a great tolerance for. If you don't know something, you simply don't know it, until someone shows you. That's very different from stupidity.
