This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

A thank you would be nice by Johnnydub
This morning I bought some gift cards from Coffee Bean for our QC team for Christmas. The young lady behind the counter said, you get 2 free coffees because of the amount you purchased. I said, oh, thanks, I don't drink coffee but can I get a receipt and give to my wife for later use. She said, I am sorry it has to be used now. So, I turn around and there is a woman, mid 30's and I said, please give them to her Merry Christmas. This dolt doesn't say thank you, smile or anything but just looks at me. The young lady behind the counter said, Miss, a thank you would be nice! I have never laughed so hard. She looked at me and said sheepishly, thanks. I said, no worries play it forward.
