    And Joe? You only wait in line if you don't know anyone. You obviously weren't connected...were you?

    Okay, that was back in the 1970's when "Minimum Wage" was actually a living wage.

    Not impressed.

    Do you have any experience from THIS CENTURY?

    I've found that employees only steal or misbehave (or tolerate those who do) when the management has done nothing to instill loyalty.

    Loyalty is a two-way street.

    Or disinterested. My tastes go more towards the neighborhood pub where you know everyone and everyone knows you.

    I ran clubs in Vegas, Aspen, Boston, Myrtle Beach and Wilmington. All this century...all of which you'd probably have had to wait in line to get into. :dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance:

    Hmmm...can't make up my mind if you're more of a Cliff Clavin type or a Norm Peterson type...

    And with THAT reply it's now obvious that you've never had employees of your own!

    Of my own, no.

    People I've supervised. Yes.

    For instance, I had the one employee I supervised I had to protect from management because she had the goods on him for sexual harrassment.

    But fuck it, she should totally put up with that kind of behavior, because... rich people.

    It's now officially a waste of time to discuss this with you. No one deserves to be stolen from Joe.
