It takes me awhile to be comfortable opening up around people. It is usually misinterpreted as me being a snob. Oh well!

We make sure all the computer systems are running properly. So we deal with a lot of software and hardware issues. I'd say most of the workers who call us because of of their systems went down in the store are so snobby they act like they have a degree in I.T. and half the time they act like we are wasting their time. We find it hilarious and laugh at them.
Its not that they are snobby, they are just frustrated that the systems are not up

Yes. Some people expect you to open up like a tap, with the turn of a knob

It actually takes me 2 to 3 meetings to open up, and then I'm the only one stealing the room. They are mostly like.... is this the same guy ~~~>

I think some people regret making me feel comfortable around them! LOL

Sorry, the accountant in me just came out...
If its not paid off, it becomes a Liability to pay off. How is this an Asset? What kind of items are we talking about here? I know the Accounting formula.

I would just think you are an introvert.

I really meant to just address the issue of buying assets vs. liabilities...it didn't make sense.
A car is a Liability.

In technical accounting terms, it's still an asset. Just because you may still owe on a car or a home, doesn't mean they aren't still assets you can sell.

I'm a little confused by this thread, honestly.

It all depends... My house for instance is a liability. If you may have to pay in order to "sell" something, it's not a darn asset, that's for sure!

No most of them are snobby..Not all but most of them.
Men seem to be nicer than women.
