    It depends on the order as regards rules about vacation, travel, family leave, etc. Some are old-school strict; others are more "real world" progressive-ish.

I know quite a few country fans. Yes, a few of them may have some prejudice but most of them are anything but. Like every other music fan of any music genre some are wonderful people and others are real SOB's. Most fall somewhere in between. In fact, country music fans have only 2 things in common. 1. Their awful taste in music (our opinion) and 2. A tendency to cast a lot of votes on music competition shows.
    I know, but like I said before, the country cult have a specific definition.. not just any country fan.

    If people do not appreciate my kindness, then they do not deserve the positivity from me.

    It's day 2 of me trying to be a new person. So far I think I am handling this well.

    JohnnyK, it's hard to know what someone's really like through a message board, but it's easy to tell from your posts that your intelligent, articulate, and write well.

    From what you've said here and there about various problems with people, I've wondered if your social intelligence is low. There are a lot of kinds of intelligence. Some people are high in spatial ability - they can manipulate 3-dimensional objects in their heads. Other people are high in linquistic intelligence, etc.

    My husband was/is low on social intelligence. He used to tell me he was raised by wolves! I think some social intelligence is genetic; part is learned. My husband has gotten better at social things over the years. Part of the improvement, I think, was me pointing things out to him that made other people uncomfortable, and part of it was him finally figuring some things out on his own. People high on social intelligence either know this stuff innately, or they are quicker than most people at interpreting social cues so that they know when they are invading someone's personal space, making inappropriate eye contact, monopolizing a conversation, etc.

    From your post, it sounds like you've really thought about your problems and shortcomings. Good for you for wanting to change. Change is often not easy, but you can develop new habits, new ways of thinking about things, and new ways of responding to things.

    Has anyone else seen that Walmart commercial where they say "Over 400 people promoted every day,"? What are they up to now?

    I have not seen it, but it sounds like they want you to consider a "career" at Walmart.
    Count your blessings!

    Maybe.

    Maybe I'm overly sensitive, but there is just something hugely wrong and obnoxious about power lawn tools, for hours, being used on a Sunday afternoon. As usual, it's an idiot man.

    Just like they love overly-loud music, bumping and thumping.....they love noisy power tools.
