Laura your teacher sounds like a wacko.... or a misandrist and that's a sad legacy of the women's movement. I taught my kids to look behind and hold the door for whoever was next. Didn't matter if it was a pregnant woman or a teenage boy. Women's equality has nothing to do with manners and I don't understand why, decades later people still use the "hold the door" example of women's rights.
Julie: A man has no more obligation to give his seat to a pregnant woman or an elderly person than a woman does. And I, as a healthy woman I have no more right to a seat than a healthy man.
Julie: As RepMan's official "decorator," I thank you.

But if he DID text and WAS NOT tough on you, you would fire him. So he is being paid to be tough. Sorry, but who pays whom DOES make a difference.

Rep: Sorry, but I think it's wrong to compare a business manager to a personal trainer who YOU ARE PAYING to get visible, tangible, physically measurable results that you have specifically requested. Mario is being paid to do what YOU want him to do. You have specifically asked him to push you- do what he has to to motivate you. If he doesn't do that, he doesn't get paid. Vastly different from your employer who is paying you to perform.

Greg, Greg, Greg. Yes we CAN fight city hall. That's exactly what the Occupy movement is all about. Even Boss Tweed was eventually ousted.

GTPE: Not sure I see the connection between an old man who tries to convince himself his girlfriend is not a hooker and a smart woman who falls for a bad boy.

I am sorry Peter but "the biggest aphrodisiac to such women is complete unreliability, mystery of a man's doings..." is crap. Well, maybe for some women, but not for any woman who has more than a modicum of self-respect.

I consider born-again Christians WORSE than bad boys.

Rep, bad boys don't change. They know their appeal is in being dangerous, and they need the constant affirmation that comes from women who say they should know better, but get involved anyway. Women don't make (or break) a bad boy.

Debbie Hayes just can't help herself. Here's her latest: "Miracor to report successful clinical study results of its PICSO® system designed to improve myocardial perfusion following primary PCI." Nicole from Chicago: RepMan will throw in an Ed Moed signed business card if she can decipher this one?
And we have a winner! Repman is pleased to announce that Nicole from Chicago came thru with the translation. Nicole sez: " Without seeing the actual release, for a lay audience, it would be something like this: “Post-surgery success with heart stents that reabsorb into the body.” Or “Mending a broken heart with a better stent that reabsorbs into the body.” Nicole: A never (or gently) worn Peppercom baseball hat is on its way to you. Wear it proudly, and congratulations on being the first winner of Repman's Headline from Hell contest. Who will win next?
Thanks, Nick. Smell is a much more powerful sense than some are aware, and I know that contributed to my getting hooked. So watch it!

Thanks for the comment, Byline. Yep-everyday with no cigarettes is a joy. And appreciate your RepWoman suggestion, but I think I'm better off as Rep's trusty sidekick "Bubbles"!

Three cheers you, Book! It's wild to think about the places you could smoke... hospitals, grocery stores MOVIES! It was so easy to smoke. I really wonder about the 20-30 somethings who smoke now, and how much WORK it is for them. Do they have a stronger addiction that we did?

Thanks, Jimbo. I'm very complimented.

SGK is a bully and I will not support anything they do, sell, sponsor or otherwise shove down American's throats.

That's correct Jimmy. But I'll send him your info with a note saying he's just the type you're looking for.
Toggle Commented Sep 29, 2011 on How NOT to secure a summer internship at RepMan
No problem, just didn't want folks to start nominating posts instead of visuals!
This is just for images- not content. And Rep didn't nominate these- readers did. His call is for others to submit their own nominations.
I go with the Goose, Rep. There is a difference between whipping people into a frenzy and reporting the top story. Weather is the one commonality we all share and right now Irene is big news. It's important that people have some understand the potential severity of damage and disaster related situations (power loss, water cut-off) that we might have to deal with. And in our case (our, being NY) we have NO hurricane experience. And I don't think that if Irene misses us that you can accuse the press of misleading reporting. Their advice to be prepared is wise, and as an experienced outdoors man you of all people understand the power of mother nature and the necessity of being prepared for the worst.

Uhhh what exactly is the problem? This isn't offensive or funny. It's stupid. And the fact that the samplings are young adults isn't germane to this. "...deaths of young adults to sell candy..." that's such a stretch the band snapped. People have recently been mauled by bears- are you offended by the toilet paper ads that feature bears? This is a non-issue/ non-story.

Ignorance is no excuse. Just because someone did know then, or is too stupid to know now, doesn't make it an invasion of privacy. The internet never was and never will be private.

OK we have established the fact that the world is riddled with publicity crazy people. Look at reality TV and the insane, dangerous and sometimes illegal stunts people post on YouTube. The point is that how we represent ourselves to the public speaks volumes about ourselves. And I think it's fair game for employers to use any tool available to learn as much as they can about a prospective employee. It's the same as buying a product because all your friends recommend it rather than because of it's self-promoting advertising. How do we advertise ourselves? By some snazzy I-saved-the-world resume, or by chugging a bucket of beer throwing up and posting the pic on Facebook?
