Well then I stand corrected and applaud your folks should you be truthful. Your story is similar to my life except I'd be the parents.

Most successful people work smart, or hard. Most unsuccessful people don't. There are exceptions, but that's black and white unbiased truth.

Amazon corp employee is too hot, no AC. What can he do about it?
Teacher govt employee is too hot, no AC. What can he do about it?

"You" are one sided, the example is a crystal clear example of both sides.

According to you both can leave and go work somewhere else, though most people don't look at that as a serious option in this economy was the point. Many people need their job and have no choice so the 'option' of leaving isn't really much of one. At least the government employee has the AFT to lobby on his behalf, whether I like unions or not is a different topic and you should stop making assumptions about others personal politics just to fit your narrative.

Wrong Redmask. Go ask a public school teacher what would happen if they "Quit", I dare you to find out.

But you are correct about one thing - Obama's economy is the worst we've seen in most of our lifetimes, and yet there's still all the blowing air up our asses by the media. Cute isn't it?

I can care less anymore, I've worked my ass off and keep reaping the benefits of that hard work. All you suckers buying into the Obama bullshit will have miserable lives if you keep thinking there's some golden lunch for you at the end of Obama's rainbow. You go down that road to your own demise.

You sound like the miserable one here.

If a teacher quits mid-year they get their teaching license suspended. But if they're planning on quitting teaching altogether I don't think that would matter to them.

Correct about the teachers.

If I sound miserable to you, well I can't help you there.

I've never expected a golden lunch, and wouldn't want one if it was offered to me, I'm no ones slave and don't need others to provide for me when I'm capable. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of hard work from the piddly minimum wage years all the way up.

So many people are spoiled to death and they whine about absolutely nothing. Hard times are coming, and it's the Obama-minded needfulls who will be getting the brunt of the impact.

It just seems like you spend a lot of time in your life ruing "golden lunches" and Obama.

I wouldn't refer to welfare/food stamps/unemployment or whatever you're ranting about as a "golden lunch," it's more like a shit sandwich.

Specifically welfare/food stamps. Unemployment means you worked and want to work.

I live in the real world, apparently you have some idea of it. I lived poor, I know you never did. The abuse of the system is off the charts these days -- and a hefty majority are unwilling to give up their 'shit sandwiches' and gobble them down happily.

They keep hearing all that 'income inequality', 'baddie corporations', 'non-deserved rich guy', class envy, and all the other ridiculous "you deserve more for doing nothing" shit Obama touts daily, and they will never, I promise never get more - Democrats just wants them to believe they will - it's a load of shit to keep them voting for them. It's a sham and a pipe dream, and many of us feel helpless to help rid them of the shackles they put on themselves -- but that's what many have done, and more and more are doing. And the democrats are perfectly fine with it, there's more divisive crap invented every day to keep them busy.

But ya, keep up patting yourself on your back because you think people like me pointing out the truth are heartless, while you publicly shed a tear for all the needy -- your halo is blinding.

Obama will go down as one of the (f not THE) most inept, divisive, and untruthful president in history.

The only thing he has going for him is the constant free pass, and he's damn near worn that pass out.

No he would have to do a lot more to outdo Bush. I think he'll go down as a fairly middling president.

Still stuck on the Bush thing 6 years later? Can't face the music like always. Obama is worse in every area that counts.

Ya we really enjoy the online tennis too. Never thought my kids would like it but they LOVE the golf.

I would never buy a PS4 or a Xbone, so our family orientated backwards compatible Wii U has hit the spot regardless of how it ends up selling overall.

Yeah that's some real 'luck', what a fortunate situation he was in.

Would you have preferred he not have any options at all? What do you say to our teachers here that are in a similar situation I outlined? Hmm?

I don't know any sizable company that doesn't have desktops, and I deal with dozens each year. I have no idea where your super-d-duper-grandiose "no desktop policy" companies are, but they sure as hell aren't what most mainstream companies are doing - your assessment is complete rubbish.

So, no one ever said "I don't know any sizable company that doesn't have desktops," except for you. Two days ago. In this thread.

My current employer has an employee count in the six figures. Like I said, every employee is issued a laptop on day 1. Not a single desktop in the company.
My previous employer had 50,000 employees. They bought their last desktop in 2009.
Target, Goldman Sachs, Apple, etc., all issue laptops exclusively

Oh cmon thats so ridiculous -- One hell of a grasping at straws. You do know what "most" means correct?

I have no idea where your super-d-duper-grandiose "no desktop policy" companies are, but they sure as hell aren't what most mainstream companies are doing

Desktops are still #1 in the workforce for most companies, fact.

No one is stating companies don't use laptops. But you did say desktops are dead in the workforce and you are completely and utterly wrong, they are still the most used for the vast majority.

We ended up getting a bunch of games for it they were so ridiculously cheap, damn near paid for the system in savings compared to other systems prices.

But man Rayman Legends on the Wii U is seriously it's flag-ship game and the best version out there -- worth it in every sense our whole family plays it often.

Beamer, most large companies still use desktops, even more smaller ones do.

Admit defeat and quit trying to act like you're correct in your silly assertions. No one said anything about "oh wow never heard of a company not using desktops". Seriously think you can get away with saying shit like that when a simple read-through proves your statement a sham?

Maybe with some, not me. U r full of it. i got ur #

I worked at Amazon for about 9 months. During the summer, an ambulance sat out front just waiting for people to pass out from the heat in a certain section of the building. That was their solution, NOT installing better airflow/cooling to a small, specific area. The rest of the building was sweltering hot as well but it's unsurprising that they didnt air condition a building that's over a quarter mile long (and is still expanding).

Also, we shipped chocolate out of there, middle of summer. Don't order chocolate from Amazon.

Yeah, the building where I work just got air conditioning this summer. I have heard the horror stories. Thankfully, all the newer warehouses are air-conditioned by default. They don't keep them very cool, but it's not uncomfortable anymore either.

To be honest, your comment about chocolate is probably more accurately the reason why they installed the air conditioning, but still.

Lucky you work for a corporation where you can quit and find another job if it sucks too much for you. All our government run public schools around here do not have AC, it's a real problem and they have no choice but to suffer through it... kids and teachers both.

Just wanted to add some balance! : )
