Verizon has a "president's request order" if you are lucky enough to complain loud and long enough to get to him. Unfortunately, management (or central office) as the case may be, all too frequently, will give a technician the order AFTER the date/time it was suppose to be done, thereby ruining even further, the company's reputation.

Hated boxing, but loved the repertoire of Ali/Cosell, and do recall the Thrilla in Manila. That being said, this is one of your best posts. It never ceases to amaze me that things like this are a PR and/or marketing opportunity. Probably why I am in the law business. All cut and dried with no room for gray area. Thanks Rep.
Nothing beats Calvin & Hobbes, absolutely the best comic ever written! Great post - I didn't understand one word of it. Is resorbable even a word. Comes up on my spellcheck.
Perfect post Dandy. I too grew up in a household of smoke. Started at 13, graduated to a pack of day by high school, everyone smoked so I did too. Stopped to have children and went right back to it - and then you could have a smoking room in the maternity ward when you gave birth! When my daughter was off to high school, I had that same epiphany. Stopped cold turkey January 1 of 1998 and have never looked back. I look better, feel better and feel sorry for those that have to go find a place to hide to light up. Best decision I ever made.

Just had our harassment in the workplace mandatory seminar and it seems that "fun" of any sort will be taken out of the equation and while we are told it is great if our job is "fun," it doesn't matter in the long run. We are here to work. Ahhh, law, just a barrel of laughs. Excuse me while I go shoot my boss the "bird" while dropping "f" bombs.

Mick and I were discussing this very topic on Friday night and I have to say I was a bit disappointed with his train of thought in that he kept licking my face instead of focusing on the subject at hand (oh and trying to keep Rooney away from his gold-plated dish and very expensive looking bone).
My take on this (qualification though - I don't watch any TV except for two shows - Top Chef and The Big C), you Rep should write a pilot and submit it. I think it would be a huge hit and not the mind-addling crap that is television today.

I agree with you Rep and by spreading the word more donations will come. Perhaps it is time for you to promote this worthwhile charity. I'd support you.

When I participated in the NFL breast cancer kickoff at Giants Stadium last year, it was as a guest of American Cancer Society, not Susan G. Komen. I have also heard from a Princeton University microbiologist that said both Komen and ACS donate to the university to keep a 24 hour research team up and running because, as he said it, you have to pay people to want to go into research and you also have to keep the research going. There have been many great strides in cancer research thanks to ACS and Komen and while it doesn't detect and cure the cancer, yet, it does, however, prolong your life with better lifestyle improvements. I'll keep donating and hope that you can find a spokesperson for prostate cancer because, in the end, all cancers need funding, not just mine.

I am a Yankees fan who is neither arrogant nor patronizing. Most of us are the same - we rock!

Oops - sorry - then I will stick with Browning Nagle.
Personally, I really liked the nostalgia of September 5 and 6 about the agency for those of us not familiar with it, particularly the part about Ed and his ADD and the office switcheroo. I also enjoyed the Situation b/c I would hate to be associated with anything Jersey Shore related and last but not least the Obama piece on him be Browning Nagle. As you can tell, I am a fan of the blog anyway so these are some of my favs in additio to some of those that Rep listed himself.
That's correct as it relates to Twitter - do you really need those twits?

You know Rep, I like some of these people EXCEPT for this so what I do is I don't let them get to my newsfeed - you can block them without removing them from your list and if I want to know what they are up to, I click on their name. This way, I don't hurt their feelings and my newsfeed doesn't get clogged with religious crap. Just my two cents.

Truly disheartening to know business and sports would rather go with a proven loser then give someone else a chance to succeed.

Oh Rep, this applies to NFL coaches too.

I'm waiting for seed money to open a small independent book store (crazy yes, but life long dream).

Well if they are going to put corpses on cigarette packs, can't they put photos of hardening of the arteries on happy meals? Or morbidly obese people with the line "this will be you some day!"

You are right Goose of course, but this is why I will follow the BBC instead of American news. Rep - Happy Anniversary to Peppercom! Have a great family trip to all.

Thanks to reality TV and Americans watching them generally, these spots just prove the point that as a nation, we have been dumbed down. I mean, look at Congress. How dumb can some of them get?

Well this traveler thinks you should be thankful it is just advertising. Think what will be coming next. You check your bags (pay that $15-25 per bag fee) and THEN, wait for it, they charge you to get into the baggage claim area too! I'll take the ads.

So much for "letting down your hair" in the internet age. Girl can't even puke without someone posting it on facebook. Good employees will always find work even if there is some "questionable" social media out there. I would be suspect if the applicant worked for the social intelligence network, that's for sure.

I KNEW this post was coming and it so met my expectations, hardly like Continental meeting yours. I have had problems for years, notably the Newark to/from Fort Lauderdale route where you always hear we are waiting for a part, the plane, crew, whatever, to arrive from "fill in the blank". When you see a group of people you know won't fill the plane; however, you and the next group departing will, well what does that make you think? Just a horrible experience all around.
