    Or he would have passed the truck before the axe came flying off. Moral of the story, speed up!

    Glad to see that someone else also caught the Jay Faux/Guy Fawkes mask mistake.

    I like to play a game with these high pressure sales people. Whenever they tell me something is free, my reply is “I cannot afford it”.

    great story, but I don’t think I would have described the thug as “the poor guy”

    When I was 18, my girlfriend got pregnant. We were highly encouraged by some to have an abortion, the usual “adult” advice, we were too young to have children, financially unstable, not (yet) married, blah blah blah. Fortunately, my then girlfriend (who eventually became my wife) and I were adamant about accepting responsibility. A year and a half later, she became pregnant with our second child and again the same “adult” advice ensued by the same people and we again put our foot down and did the right thing. Today we have 2 beautiful kids, one is a nurse (helping many people with medical needs) and the other is a PHD student at MIT, making the world a better place through technology. I am so glad we did not accept the “adult” advice given to us about 30 years ago. Keep up the great work Brian Fisher, I am happy to hear of your organization.

    It is definitely apparent that SWA knows how to treat employees. I fly frequently and usually with SWA and I have never had a bad experience with any of their employees. They all seem to enjoy their job and they know how to treat their passengers. Why many of the big carriers cannot grasp this simple concept is beyond me.

    Wow Jerry, and you know this how? Let me tell you and all you other naysayers about my personal experience. I was once in a very dark period in a time of my life about 10 years ago. Reading one of Joel’s uplifting books helped me realize that things were not so bleak. Subsequently, I rededicated my life to Christ, got involved in a great local church and got my life back on track. I give Joel a lot of credit for my 180-degree turn around. You still think he is a total fraud? Is it not possible that some preachers can specialize in some areas of ministry? Must all preach what YOU think should be preached in order for YOU to be accepting and not call someone a fraud?
