    Whew, I hope they don't come down to where I work here @ DHS, they might be just as horrified, HA! Look up that danish beer maker "carlsberg" (one of the best beers out there IMHO). They almost had an employee revolt on their hands a while ago, wanna know why? They took away the "benefit" of (and I'm not kidding) DRINKING ON THE JOB! They sanctioned it of course but get THIS; EVEN the DRIVERS were allowed to have one during working hours! I'll look up the article and post it. (found it) here it is, in short it says, now workers can only consume 1 beer per working day but the drivers..(YES I SAID DRIVERS) still get to consume 3 a day hahahahahahaha! SIGN ME UP! get this quote from the article

    "Some employees may think they're not affected by three beers. But if you're not affected after three drinks, then you have a serious alcohol problem."

    (I'm just gettin started at 3, maybe I need help?.... NAH!.... I call it stress relief from government work,) On a serious note a time magazine article last month mentioned that a new study shows those who drink moderately live longer than those who don't drink, and they think it is due to stress relief (in short) Look it up. (but don't say I told you to go out and start drinking!)

    Chrysler fires 13, lays off 2 in taped lunch escapade

    Alisa Priddle / The Detroit News

    Chrysler Group LLC has fired 13 workers and temporarily sidelined two more caught on tape drinking and using drugs in a park during their lunch break, before returning to build Jeep Grand Cherokees at the Jefferson North plant.

    The disciplinary actions were announced Monday following an investigation that began last week after Chrysler saw video of the actions from WJBK-TV, Channel 2. WJBK was tipped off by concerned co-workers.

    "It has been determined that 13 employees engaged in behavior that violated the company's Standards of Conduct and these 13 employees were discharged today (Monday). Two remaining employees will receive a one-month disciplinary layoff without pay," Chrysler said in a statement.

    The automaker said the swift justice makes it "clear that Chrysler Group will not tolerate such behavior and will continue to evaluate its protocols to ensure that something like this does not happen again."
    Both the automaker and the United Auto Workers have said the workers identified do not reflect the majority of the work force at the Jeep plant.

    Especially at this point in time with unemployment the way it is. If you have a job...ANY job...you need to try to keep it.

    Thanks Birch

    This one warmed my heart.

    I told my kids so many majorly insane things - to try to prepare them for the horror stories I'd heard happen to others....

    When taking 'medications' saying 'Mmmm candy ... do you want some'?

    I'm sure I would have said numerous things about drugs and alcohol as though, 'Hey it's cool'

    Gosh come to think of it - I'd make up some 'R' or 'X' rated movie and ask them 'with eager expectation' -- Hey you want to watch this one?


    That's bound to be more of a 'guy thing' and I think the bigger part of me said a bunch of things -- crazy like that -- to make life a little more fun and spontaneous.

    She's a good kid Birch - turned out top notch

    LOL. Schools and day care centers are still open.

    Once the technology to replace with machines is there, they won't need to come back to work, ever.

    Ah man I was excited thinking BirchTree was back and realized it was a post in 2010
    I trade based on volume + price action. Price action alone only tells half the story.

    Auto workers are seriously whistling past the graveyard.

    Ford said on Sunday it would shut its Spanish plant in the eastern region of Valencia for one week starting on Monday after three employees tested positive for coronavirus.
