    GAL is derrogatory (BRAD)

 Gal is a derrogatory word used back in the days of slavery to address the “house gal”. That is why it is offensive to many people, especially in the south. Do not ever call a black woman “gal” expecially in corporate America. You will get a very odd look, although you probably meant nothing about it. It will be impressive if you immediately correct someone who says this. You’ve got the knowledge, now pass it on

   My dad still calls me his boy from Brad  8/6/2012 2:01:37 PM
 My gal doesn't mind being called Gal--If i ever get down south, i'll be sure to never call any other woman, gal-

Thanks for the tip~


PS, i'm just a few weeks away from firing corporate America!

   silly boy from MikeF  8/6/2012 3:24:39 PM
 you can't fire them you can only retire; you are just the little worker bee

But I guess it makes you feel important to say it that way LOL

   Oh boy from bobj #17034 #17034  8/6/2012 4:42:24 PM
 Bwads dad is still waiting for Bwad to grow up and get a brain

   Mike, let me tell you about "worker bee" from Brad  8/6/2012 8:47:09 PM
 We have had a standing rule at work forever--No radio headsets on the job-PERIOD!

I have worn my radio headset EVERY day in the open since 1985.

I'm a worker bee, that's for sure--i occupy a position at the BOTTOM of the corporate totempole..

Why do you suppose i have been able to DICTATE my acceptable parameters in the workplace for the last 32 years?

Because i have done more work that you could possibly ask one man for and if they ever did anything damper my enthuasium, such as enforce the ban on the radios, i would revert right back to average and they just can't live with that.. BWA! Through my own hard work and GREAT ATTITUDE--I OWN MY MANAGEMENT!

what's a poor workin' guy to do?


three weeks and counting~!

   Congratulations Brad... from Gridleak  8/6/2012 9:17:10 PM

I suspect the place will collapse without you there.

Gridleak (fill the job in five minutes me MikeF)

   if you only understood how lame you sound from MikeF  8/6/2012 10:38:20 PM
 It's too bad you can't step out of your stupor long enough to see how lame you sound and are.

No crap Grid, two days of intense lefty-tighty training and a going away party the day after he leaves and in one week no one will remember he was ever there. brad who?

   Thanks Grid, i think... from Brad  8/6/2012 11:56:46 PM
 don't worry mikie, if i had worked for you i would never have been so profligate as to read you the riot act unless you deserved it!

4 weeks of work left, 3 weeks vac...

FINALLY, a ratio between freedom and the guklag i can live with-!

(told my boss to let me know what days he really needs me--'ll try to work it into my schedu-


   so it's OK to endanger other workers so you can listen to liberal talk radio from MikeF  8/7/2012 8:57:55 AM
 I would be willing to bet that the no headphones is a safety issue but since you're a liberal you really only care about yourself. I would not have expected any more.
