    The more I work in financial services, the more I think, there isn't enough $ for me to be a c-suite exec. Second most regulated industry, behind nuclear. Here the man in charge being held accountable for something done by employees, which he claims he was unaware.

    Frankly, I'd like to see a hell of a lot more accountability...across all levels of Corporate America and our society in general.

    But it doesn't seem to be politically correct. Looking into my crystal ball, it will be a contributor to Joe-mala's undoing and/or their legacy.

    People who still think faxing is an acceptable way of communicating to do business. That was out-of-date when I was in college. I graduated from college almost 14 years ago.... and now I am depressed realizing I am getting old.

    Looking at all the new hunting clothes that are coming out this year... I killed the biggest buck of my life at twelve yards wearing some army surplus store purchased jacket and pants that I paid less than $50 for. $800 for a pant and jacket outfit!? I have some expensive hunting clothes, they're a great cut and fit but I've never been blown at more since "trusting" their scent "blocking" fooey. Maybe I should just start buying out Air Force high altitude gear and sewing a patch with some deer antlers on it and charging 8x the price to make it legit hunting gear...

    I remember when fax machines came out with the thermal paper, we all wonder how we ever got by without that magical technology.

    Wife just called. My son has to home school for the next two weeks due to possible exposure at school. Sounds like the whole school may be doing this. Just wonderful. Meanwhile, overhearing my coworker listening to a press conference on the news, Biden is promoting environmental agendas.

    We still have the machine. But, I unplugged it a couple of years ago for the same reason.

    This entire thing has really put me into a bad mood. I cant describe it. But something amazing happened today. The kid that died wrote his grandparents a note before he died asking his grandparents to take care of that girl bc of her life situation. His grandparents contacted her today and told her they had college money put away for the boy and now are going to use that money to pay for 4 years of college for her. My daughter said they were all in tears today. I'm here finishing up a workout and for some reason I feel a little bit better even though that poor boy lost his life.

    You know you live in North Dakota when you walk out of the house at 6 Am. It is 21 below. A tom cat is loudly, love meowing under my truck. Another much, much meaner tom cat is fornicating with mama kitty under the hood of my Ford. The mean bastard jumping out from under the hood and hissed at me. The twit actually jumped out at me to let me know to stay away from the truck and his prize. Pretty sure all of Brocket heard me holler at him, " I hope you freeze your d**k off you bastard !!!!!".

    Nobody violates my Ford !! War has been declared.

    I don't know how to create one myself, but if you can figure out how to get one going I will donate $25 to a fund for her later in life or for the Grandparents helping her out.

    Not needed by any means, but a show of appreciation and support can do wonders for the soul for all involved.

    Now you're going to miss out on all those amazing time shares and vacation package deals... we tossed ours as well but not before going full on Office Space on it in the warehouse.

    Here at work we have 1 machine that does it all. I always take the spam faxes and put them on the desk of somebody that is not in their office. You can build a pretty good pile if they are off for a week.:evilgrin:

    Yup. That was all it spit out.

    Who needs FAX in the age of email?

    Have a rep in PA that insists on sending PO's via fax.

    Nope under 60, he sends e-mails in all caps too. But they are the largest purchaser of our equipment and I don't care how PO's arrive as long as they keep coming.
