They aren't the 'me' generation, nor are they the 'we' generation, they are the 'make it so' generation... ;)

Jobs aren't supposed to be easy (like they are for you),

I just realized today: When I stopped carrying, it was the same moment that I stopped caring... ;)

Strange how they can bait, prompt, and punish me, yet they'll never just tell me what it is they want of me... ;)

Question:

How many times do you have to tell a fifty year old mouthy aggressive bully to get out of your face?

Answer:

Dunno... After giving a dozen warnings, the pepper spray did the trick... I'm quite sure he'll be back... ;)

(Of course, it almost landed *ME* in jail for trespassing due to being on the wrong side of the lake! Go figure.)
