    Messed his knees up. He was still on disability when I left 4 months later.

    Stupid/careless/uncoordinated people and heavy equipment isn't a good mix.

    ETA: guns also fit that statement.

    Being pleasant is communication skills. Being MISINTERPRETED by others for agenda or gain is lack of communication skills or is malice of the second party.

    The danger is with the orientation bias of the one making the judgment.

    Are you suggesting that my orientation bias is off kilter? Because I'll have you know that I have a pretty clear and well defined orientation. :joker

    Have you considered that miscommunication can result from either or both parties participating in said communication? (Happens all the time, here).

    I don’t have the time and we don’t have the bandwidth, but latest example is threatening to kill the suicide prevention briefer, but maybe that doesn’t count cuz I meant it? Had never seen the fool until a joe committed suicide, then we get to sit through his diatribes for three saturdays in a row. Where was he when Joe needed to hear him?

    I believe that's can happen but generally only the Protected Class member uses it to their advantage. White straight males are required to be tolerant and understanding of others feelings. Even if their career is on the line. Each infringement has to be investigated and the offended party doesn't have to justify their hurt feelings...AS I UNDERSTAND IT. <(Did you understand that emboldened text?)

    We're just a bunch of KKK **********s. Especially white Republican NRA member conservatives. Don't believe it just ask Hillary/Warren/et al.

    But, but, but haven’t those protected ones been granted a special dispensation to be as intolerant as they want.
