Me Be A Jerk

One of the cool things about working in the shop is meeting some of the folks that dealt with my uncle. Some pretty brilliant minds, there be. Inventors and entrepreneurs, and some guys that are just a blast with which to deal. Real characters.

I recently met one of the guys who had been tossing some business ideas to my uncle. Supposedly, my uncle had been seriously considering working with the guy. I don't believe that. While my uncle may have thought the ideas sound, I would bet money that he did not care for the guy. I can't stand him.

Perhaps it's just me, and maybe he's not really the way that I take him. I mean... I have discovered that I'm kind of a jerk.

There was a big party, awhile back (some of you may remember it), and my aunt took me along... a chance to meet some new folks and possibly get in line for some work with some of the business owners. Again, I had a pretty good time, with a couple of exceptions. One of them being the asshole who'd dump his beer in the pool, and the other, the guy to whom I refer above.

Now, I've got to be fair, and say right out, I've never met the guy. Not actually. See, everytime my aunt tried to introduce me, and explain that I was helping her with the business, the guy would turn his back on me. Three times he did this, like I was not even there. He wouldn't even look at me. I just laughed at him. Meantime, he's trying to convince my aunt to let him have copies of our build sheets, so he can line some assembly shop up. Thankfully, she doesn't trust him. She acted interested, and then left at the first chance she got.

Last night, at the bar with my cousin-in-law, I saw the guy. Of course, I was stupid enough to say something about "the big, fat, pile of shit who can't look anyone lower than him in the eye," and was again shushed. Apparently, that's not very nice. Maybe they're right.

I probably should have called him "Obese" instead of fat.

ummm....just so you know - it really is ok to do that. I did it this week, only to a "major american retailer". But you may be right - the Obsese might have gone over a bit better.....

He did what to my brother?

oh no he di'n't...

let me have a few words with him. I can take on nurses and generals, some punk ass won't last 2 minutes with me...

And at least you'd avoid any misdemeanor charges.

Always remember, that only in America do we have so much food that we are allergic to the crap.

I mean, whens the last time you heard of someone from Rwanda being Lactose intolerant?

And calling an ace an ace is always acceptable in my book.

What an asshole. The man obviously has no character, and there is no reason to do business with and asshole except when you need to wipe him off.

I am glad that your Aunt sees him for what he is...

The proper response would have been "You BETTER not look at me, motherfucker! Yeah that's right, just turn away mama's boy, turn away...."
