When I owned my own business a few years back, one of my workers was a real problem.... He would work... but very slowly.. I put up with this for a while and , fortunately for me, found another job. He asked me for a reference. Therein lies the problem... do I say the truth, and get the labour relations board after me for denigrating a person..... or do I lie and let the next person deal with the problem. So.... my recommendation went like thus...... 'If you can get this individual to work for you, you will indeed be fortunate'

nah, I don't say them. I think them.
Like to hubby---'You did a great job on that" and not spoken---but geez if you could move your ass a bit faster it would have been done 3 months ago and too bad you couldn't figure out how to handle those holes and not mutiliate them with the drill. for heavens sake, ever hear of measure twice, drill once? ya stupid *&**((
I guess I don't say the second half because I am mellowing with age now. younger I would have said it
there is nothing worse than a compliment with the words included: BUT or However then the zinger comes LOL

Honor. Respect. Integrity. Dignity. Loyalty. Honesty. Empathy.
These are only given to those who earn it by showing the same.
All else get exactly as they give.

onfire, it's better to tell a woman trying to squeeze her feet into tiny shoes, to try the box they came in instead

Wife or girlfriend: "Do these pants make my ass look fatter?"
Husband or boyfriend: "Nope, it's not the pants!"
One must be smarter than the equipment they are working with!
