    I'm not going to knock people, because I do like people, I'm a social animal.. However, I do feel in today's sophisticated, homogenised society so much has been lost. Tossed aside. Time for others and common courtesy for starters.

    Dog eat dog rules in so many areas, but I'm afraid that those who live their lives in that vein, are not really living their lives at all. They will never experience the joy that love and sharing bring. Putting others before yourself.

    One thing I will pull Omar up on is the use of the word hate. Yes I know its become a go to figure of speech, but words are incredibly powerful, and this world we live in is overflowing with the hate stuff at the moment. It doesn't need any more.

    Its very difficult at times to keep your head up, and your spirits, when people around you are acting like complete ar$es.. especially if you're on the end of some vindictive behaviour. If I can, I always try to tell myself to take it easy.. their invective is saying more about them than you..

    ne laissez pas les bâtards vous écraser.. :thumb::D

    I didn’t mean I “hate” them, I meant that I’d rather avoid them or dealing with them.

    When I’m with someone I know very well and they bad-talk others, I simply tell them to stop it and look themselves; none of us is perfect, bad-talking others won’t make them better nor will it do you good. I work on improving myself and the ones I care for only. I can’t make the entire humanity better, but at least I start with myself and the ones around.

    Oh, reading some posts above reminds me how grateful I need to be that I've been
    my own boss for so long. It's not easy doing everything (I don't like being a boss to
    other people besides myself) but the pros far outweigh the cons. I've worked with
    some genuine schmucks; I've even been a genuine schmuck to work with. I could
    never go back to a normal job.

    I feel tour pain very well. I haven’t had luck with previous bosses. I was a supervisor ones and I can say I was a good team player and leader, because I used to work for my team not for myself, for a very simple reason, if they succeed, I succeed.

    I really hate people that confuse "rant" with "rent".

    Meanwhile, down at the cricket match, the umpires are preparing to inspect the pitch at noon...

    Holy crap, I went to sleep again and woke up in yet another universe. I need to find the passage back to the place I was before!

    If this is your effort to create a Dark Side, You have much work still to do.

    I am most displeased with your lack of progress.
