If you’re unemployed long enough and get rejected often enough, it is possible to reach your levels. I’m already learning that I have to hide my age and years of experience most of the time or else employers start thinking I’m overqualified or too old (at 46). I was told at my first interview ever that I was overqualified – when I had zero job experience at like 22. It happens.
…and if someone is bugging you daily while you hit these barriers, it can get on your nerves. The person not going through the experience may not understand the frustration.
Plus, do we know what the wife is like? She could have pushed him past his limits.
This doesn’t excuse what he did. I’m just saying we shouldn’t assume what made him snap.
Plus, it says he started repairing the damage by the time the news crew arrived. At least he’s taking responsibility for it and not asking someone else to fix it for him.

My dad can. Overly critical most of my life. Nothing is ever good enough for him. …and refuses to acknowledge he’s overcritical. Gets defensive when we try to discuss problems. Everyone else is at fault, not him. It would be nice to hear one compliment that wasn’t backhanded from a parent.
I'm sure the teenage mutant turtles t/shirt isn't helping.....
My Mother did that crap until I told her to knock it off or I would leave when she started. Each time she'd start in, I'd say 'Goodbye" and leave. If we were out at dinner and she started it, I'd pay the tab...right then and take her home.
It didn't take her long to get the picture.

Spoiled snob. Cares more about her friggin car (Mustang?) than her pet. Vet confirmed the dog was left in the car longer than 5 minutes. If she truly cared about her pet, she would’ve taken him with her or watched the time and rushed through her errands. Her dog is probably treated as a fashion accessory, to look cool. Just imagine how she’d treat kids.
The vet isn't telling the truth. Multiple people from inside the store (including the sales clerk who doesn't even know the woman) confirmed the lady was in the store less than 10 minutes. It was 80 degrees outside. I would never leave my dogs in the car, but she doesn't appear to have done anything wrong. Check WSBTV Atlanta for the interview with the clerk.
I'd be curious to know how the vet knew, assuming the dog wasn't suffering from heat stroke, that the dog was in the car for X number of minutes. Maybe the guy or gal is looking for her 15 minutes of fame on the new cycle. It's been known to happen before, even in my profession.

That’s how many people hold their phone to record video. It bugs me too, but alot of people don’t think about turning their phones to get a horizontal shot.
Yeah I get the whole morons yet to learn how to record in landscape using a cell, but surely the Ball Club had footage for the media.
They knew it was going to happen! How could they not have footage. Heck, the guy's friends had to have known, right?

I hear crickets. Still better than any teleprompter speech. Anyone know if anything was actually done?

Glenn has mentioned this on the radio show at least twice that I know of. He admitted he make a mistake, but it may take months to fix things. Some of us guessed contracts are involved. (Copied and pasted. I get tired of typing this over and over.)
I tried to save Bullwinkle, but things got a bit Rocky.

I agree she shouldn’t be looking at her phone during the National Anthem.
For those talking about lame excuse, it’s not clear if some are saying taking notes on a phone is unbelievable or if it’s for doing anything during the Anthem.
I do take notes on my phone. I’ve lost slips of paper. Typing a note on my phone is rarely lost – unless I didn’t save it properly. I also take photos of signs for events so I have a record of times and places listed on the sign or poster. I have taken photos of notes on slips of paper a few times too so I have a copy of the info. Depending on the info, I might transfer it to a calendar or phone book if it’s something important. The photos and notes are just a way to get info saved quickly.
seems pretty clear to me that commenters are put-off by her NOT behaving respectfully during The Anthem.. Taking notes on a phone instead of a steno pad isn't a big deal to anyone in this day and age. Even an old dinosaur like me understands life in the Computer Age. If this woman was taking notes at dinner (in this photo), then I'm a bomber pilot in the Tibetan Air Force. It is sad that her first response was to claim that the comments are about something other than what is, from the photographic evidence, absolutely undeniable.
You don’t take notes on a phone. Who the heck does that? Some idiot maybe. Nobody with any brains does that.

There is already a Diet Coke with Splenda. The box for the 12pack has yellow in the design and a Splenda logo. Not every store carries it. Target and Walmart don’t. The major grocery stores do. I can get it at Fry’s (Kroger), Albertsons, Bashas. Safeway isn’t convenient for me so I don’t know about them.
PepsiOne also had Splenda but I haven’t seen it in stores for awhile now. I vaguely remember seeing FantaOne someplace onetime.
I do have a reaction to aspartame if I drink too much of it plus at some point I lost all sense of feeling full. That was the first thing I noticed when I first stopped aspartame. I started feeling full while eating for the first time in years. Occasionally having aspartame doesn’t do it anymore. It must have been a build up over the years. I haven’t noticed any issues with Splenda. I usually gag on Stevia.

In TX, when I was fired from my first full-time job, I was denied unemployment. (I refused to be a yes-man. …and I had to avoid my boss to get work done. He was stalling a sales presentation project. I fully understand why I was fired. My sleep apnea also kicked in around this time. …a year before I was diagnosed with it. I was falling asleep on the job as a result, but my firing focused on me avoiding my boss.) I was going to challenge it, but at that point I already had another job. Not worth it. Not as easy to prove things back then either.
Burger King should challenge her unemployment claim, but probably won’t. People who behave like this and don’t understand respect don’t deserve unemployment.

Fortunately, I’ve only seen that a few times in my area. …and the employees I had trouble with seem to disappear after a few months.
Except for one location, Burger King has usually been a pain to go to – the most consistent with bad employees. Same general area. They could have the same owner.
My biggest problem used to be the language barrier at Burger King. BK isn’t convenient for me anymore, but the Spanish speaker had trouble understanding me. Back then, they had jalapeno poppers and the individual peppers. She got them mixed up. Order one. Get the other. For me, it made no difference. I was adding them to the burger at the time. Then there was a manager who didn’t know his own menu. It’s been ages, but they had (or have) Icee with ice cream in the same cup. It was on their menu where all could see. The cup wasn’t clear and I was in a rush. I was getting fed up and just wanted to leave. They were lost on the idea of mixing the two. The non-English speaker just hears Icee and selects that on the system. This happened at more than one location. Back in 1997, I had a BK manager get an attitude because I accidentally left a book at the pay phone outside. When I returned to get my book, I got an earful. It’s been too long to remember the words, but I remember how I was treated. I have not returned to any of these locations.

We also need to add math compasses and furniture. Years ago, I remember a Japanese student stabbed another student with his math compass. Plus, chairs, tables, vases can be used in fights too. Furniture must be nailed or glued down. Reading will no longer be allowed because books can be thrown too. Can’t throw books anymore. One reason so many criminals get off.
 April 7, 2015 at 3:08pm
That sentence got me too. I was angry from that point on.
I also don’t fully understand why this is news. This can’t be the first time it’s happened regardless of the reason. Consequences of a protest or boycott or actions – preaching to the choir here. Most of us here understand there can be consequences. It seems the Progressives and many liberals don’t understand there are consequences.
Sorry it happened. …but this happens. It seems you need to complain to corporate headquarters and write a true negative review online like on Yelp or someplace – a true review vs a protest trashing a business. Try a GoFundMe if you need financial help to rebuild what you lost.

It doesn’t destroy them. Article says it’s only for 30 minutes. The peppermill is simply a remote for other accessories.
Ok, I read there was an EMP. Hmm. But still, don't do this, simply don't allow them to bring their electronics to the dinner table. A pepper mill off switch is no substitute for parenting.

I have noticed it often. I also know I’m guilty of it on one article, but it wasn’t a “lighten up” situation. I forget which article it was, but for me to say that it had to be truly a meaningless article – not cute, not humorous. In my mind, it would be equal to an article about someone crossing a street. …and that’s all there is to it.
I agreee. It’s not heathly to be buried in negative crap 24/7. You gotta step away from it for a bit. Read a fun article. …or watch a comedy. Anything to get a mental break so you can recover a bit.
"Why did the rooster cross the road..." "To git to the cute-chick on the other-side!" Aah--Ha!! :-)

It’s probably the PC crowd complaining most. Can’t do psychological harm. (Any punishment will involve it to some degree. Just getting busted can be stressful.) Can’t spank – although I do feel causing physical harm like broken bones is too much. I have seen more disrespect from the younger generation since PC entered child discipline. Just like the Foxworthy joke about the kid just expressing himself while on a roof. Some parents are in denial about how bad their kid is. (Personal experience with that one) Others are afraid of having their kids taken away. Being PC potentially creates bad kids if the kid is a problem child.

Unfortunately the mother will probably be attacked for the psychological damage of publicly humiliating her kids. It happened to a parent within the past year. I forget the exact details. I remember getting irritated by it.
I was thinking the same thing, luckily she isn't being attacked(yet) I think it's the best way to get through to kids now though; the center of their world is social media

HuffDaddy – This last comment proves your own prejudice. I was going to explain how a cake is part of the wedding, but waste of time. You are not prepared to listen and have resorted to cheap shots. You don’t get it, and your prejudice won’t allow you to see it. It’s all hate to you because one out of many services gets refused, and a list of competitors was provided to get the service elsewhere. No one kicked them out of the store. Other items were not denied. They were harassed at home and property vandalized.
Is it acceptable to ruin a person’s life over ONE cake that could be purchased elsewhere? Financial ruin. Is it acceptable to vandalize a van in his driveway at home? All of this was done.
