“Just remember, there is a fine line between "pawning" one's self, and "pimping" one's self.”
“Sometime your closest friends will be the ones least likely to Enable you.
You know a few months ago I went through a really serious depression period. Eventually one of my close friend more or less verbally slapped the crap out of me to get out of my pity pot.
But if someone wants to crawl into their hole and keep piling shi# on themselves, I apologize if I don't join in.”
“Good try at spin, XL. You could have accomplished your goal without being nasty. I doubt that helping Euro was high on your list of priorities.”
“Well then, let me tell you, there is a HUGE difference between what your friend did for YOU and your constant bytching at others. You are cynical at your best and insulting at your worst.
I come here because folks here regulare invite me to laugh. Tell me something good XL, and not something that is going to hurt or pull me down and then praise yourself as "not enabling someone". Your total philosopy is whacky! Enable someone to something GOOD. Don't do something that is meant NOT to enable someone. This is a totally fücked up negative pissyology that can only fail.”
“Yeah, I know Mutt. I had to look up philosophy. It's kinda difficult to spell.”
“You spell, therefore you are.”
“My Philosophy of moving ahead and staying positive is "wacky"...HMM>..LMAO is right.”
“no, your philosophy of #&%!$ting on someone who is down is whacky.”
“Despite all the stress and bs, I still like my job.”
“I have the best job on trail talk.”
“Hell I love my job. Yeah there are long hours and sometimes crappy conditions. But it beats the crap out of working in an environment that is loaded with "what you done for me lately?" crowd.
Granted I have coworkers who keep telling me they want a job where they will be happy. But Happy is an inside job.”
“Your philosophy of shytting down is whacky. If you would be shytting up I'd call you brave and think it were funny.”
“Pissyology. I like that. I think I know some people that may have majored in it. Or at least took some classes...”
“Pissyology, LMAO. I went to school with a few people that majored in that.”
“Hey, I know about that!
Oh, wait, you said pissyology...
“you know about the science of deputizing civilians to go after the bad guys?”
“Okay i will be serious...Euro what do you actually "Like" to do. This is serious, last year at this time I was asked the same thing in an interview.
I listed the things I truly enjoy doing. And you know what..it really doesn't matter how tough the work is, or the pay grade. but if you find something you LOVE to do, you will not work a day in your life.
Personally I think you should look at leading trips to the US for backpacking etc. It seems like you like that.

“hmmm, so if its not an I and its not an O, passy makes no sense, pessy could be you study pessimism. Sometimes Y but what would pyssy mean? The only vowel left is U and that would mean ....
can i borrow your homework?”
“Just got hired after being unemployed since December. VP of operations!!!! Sweet, now I can buy beer again.”
“Congrats, OPIE. Hopefully it's not as part of the mop squad for ATL...”
“Thanks XL, I appreciate the intention. I really do.
Only, what is it that you want me to say or hear from me that hasn't already been said or explained before? Past experience also tells me, when I tryed to thank you, usually you only had an contemptuous reply for it.
Okay, you can't stand me when I whine. Understood. But you also can't stand me when I laugh about it. Neither can you stand me when I say thanks for trying to help. I guess it must be so you just can't stand me at all. But hey, I never stepped into your life. You stepped into mine. Once you were in, only after a little while you started trashing around like mad. What great wrong have I done to you to make you so mad?”
“XL seems really good at poking wounds. Personally, I don't think making someone feel bad is a good way to help them up. There is a difference between a reality check and just being hateful and cruel and hurtful.
On a more positive note..
“Lots of questions answered in two or three paragraphs.”
“Congrats Opie! I've been looking for a position since last October.”
“Hey there's an opening in Kentucky for a Census taker....”
“I wasn't expecting any more out of this thread, but LMAO! again!”
“I can't believe yall are being mean to haywood”
“i didn't get the job. one of those form emails came today. i know i did my best in the interview so i believe that the job went to someone more qualified.
this is not to say that i am not crushed. i am.
i went hiking torrey pines to blacks beach on tuesday and when hiking over the top of a few rocks took a little leap that tore my calf muscle. just a slight tear, but it will take 4 to 6 weeks to heal. which sucks because i am going to Joshua Tree with my new scout troop this weekend rockclimbing. NOT. oh i'll go. i just won't do more than cook and slave belay.
life sucks and then you die.”
“Diz, the worst jobs I ever applied for I never Got!
Years ago I was odds on favorite for a Department Head position at a school. New Class the whole nine yards. I got passed over and was crushed. Ran into my friend who got the job....he is miserable. So I thank God for Unanswered Prayers.”
“They can be mean to haywood if he's mean to the cute TT'ers, they just can't be mean to him when he goes after Stovie.”
“Finally after searching for a job for nearly one year, I got two offers on the same day! What the heck?? I accepted a position at a law firm in Raleigh, NC and I start next week. So my new home will be Raleigh!! I will be living with my brother who lives there until I find a place of my own.
So for everyone who is still looking for employment, keep up the faith. I know what you are going through and I know it just sucks. Make your job finding a job, network the heck out of people you know, be open minded about what kind of job you want, and try not to let the rejections get you down too much.”
“Hey Cd, you're only a couple hours away from us now!”
“Charlotte, right? Cool! It would be great to meet you guys some day.”
“Friend of mine just moved to Raleigh. 3 hours to the beach, 3 hours to the mountains. Nice place.”
“Congrats CD! My daughter is at NCState!”
“Thanks NG! I got lost trying to get out of the city and ended up driving around NC State campus. My son happens to be there this weekend for a road bike race. He is on the Va Tech cycle team.”
“Well CD that almost makes us neighbors.”
“turned down for another job. i am sensing a pattern here. fvck them then, i won't work.”
“Must not have been the one for you Pamma. Keep your chin up.”
