Good job! :D

I'm at the point in my life now where I've given up giving a *censored* about how much I make, and what everyone else has that I don't. Played that game for faaaaaaaaar too long. I'm content to be my own boss, even if it means living in poverty. :)

Now if only every car was as reliable as our '86 Grand Marquis ....

That is the problem and give them more benefits and the cost of products to us goes up and there is no incentive to improve yourself. Walmarts/McDs/gas pumpers etc should be a stepping stone to night school and moving up the ladder. Everybody hates working retail as I remember, I certainly did. Stay too long and you are captured and that is not Wallys fault. When I retired I studied hard at being a nobody. I got my degree and now am top of my profession. That is supposed to be an inspirational note to you youngsters - how am I doing?


I say your doing a great job! Are you at the PHD level! :D

Step away from the keyboard Smitty! Don't let them fool you! It is the land of burning coal for 7 months for heat! You can't struggle by with an old plow truck because you use it daily! Then in the summer(all 7 days of it) you have to change your airfilter every week because of blackflies, mosquitoe's, no seeum's, and horseflies! They are like married guys to single guys, always trying to lure someone that has it made into their suffering! :shock:

Everyone says the bugs are so bad! I have seen 3, yes that is a 3, mosquitoes in 3 months. If 3 mosquitoes showed up at a firepit party in Maine no one would know. Thats because they couldn't see them through the blackflies. I ran a mosquito magnet for 3 years and when we sat out people could not believe the lack of mosquitoes. There was an occasional hatch but they would all get sucked up overnight. I would have a yard full of them if I ever move back.
