Maybe you’re right.

Hey ... thread is still open.

OK, I'll air a couple of grievances ...

The 4th hole at the course I played today was stoopid. And I'm not saying that just because I got a snowman on it. Actually, I probably am saying it because of that. Never mind.

I finished my round with my best drive of the day -- 275 yards and as close to dead center as is humanly possible. Me being me, I screwed up from there and had to settle for bogey. So I also have a grievance with my own golfing ability (or lack thereof).

Furthermore, the first beer I had after the round called itself a hazy IPA but it was much more bitter than most hazies I've had. I have a grievance with the brewmaster for not using Mosaic hops.

Finally, I have a grievance with Ron Rivera for playing Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly in a stoopid exhibition game. Both got hurt -- hopefully not seriously, given that they are the two irreplaceable Panthers.

I feel so much better having aired those grievances. Thanks, Jake, for starting this thread.

None, really.  It's just a more polite way of saying, "Holy crap...this thread is going to be a dumpster fire."

You can trade five "in before the locks" for an Arby's coupon, so there's that, which is nice.

Same thing with Arby's, tbf.

I love it when someone loudly proclaims they are tolerant to fill-in-the-blank.  And I totally believe them.

dude, my wife is bald right now just finishing chemo #6 of 12...i am obviously her biggest fan, best friend and husband of 35 years as of last week.  shaving my head was not going to make her feel any better.  even though i am naturally getting  close to being kinda challenged on top of the melon.  does shaving one's head in solidarity with another help the other OR is it a "feel good" move, directing attention to oneself?  i think the later and that is one of the reasons i was not a big fan of MY employee using her "cause" to create a potential distraction in OUR workplace

      but just to be clear, i would have gladly provided her with a wig

    and she could do whatever she wanted to do on her free time

  but as many businesses have a few codes of conduct, uniform, and dress codes-i just did not want her "selfless" and "noble

  statement" to distract from our focus on our patients

  i did not want to hear her or any of us have to explain all day long, to every patient, why my assistant is bald. oh, you must be

such a thoughtful, caring and...blah blah blah... i did NOT prevent her from shaving her head

        but as i stated above, i would have provided her with a wig just as i would have provided a

shirt for someone who wanted to go topless for their friends battle with whatever.   

 you think i'm insensitive?  'splain this one for me

https://time.com/36892/girl-who-shaved-head-to-support-friend-with-cancer-banned-from-school-for-violating-dress-code/


  personally, i don't give a fluck what people do on their time as long as they are nice people

thanks my man!! 
  i don't know who caine's employer is or what he does, but if one is fortunate enough to run a business for over 33 years(60 is i

 count my the anniversary of when my dad started the practice) we sure in the h3ll didn't do it by allowing our employees to use

it as their own little social feel good aquarium.  we've had a number of employees work for us in excess of 30-50(yes they stayed

 on and retired under me) years, all working toward the same goal-success of the practice.  so go they, go the business and it

 sure would not have gone anywhere with me succumbing to all of their own little personal social"crusades".  i don't give a chit

  what they do after they punch out as long as it is lawful and does not put the business in a bad light.  i do not think this is

  extreme. 

i'm all ears on how you run your business caine-letting everyone make up their own rules because it makes them feel good?  or does your business have rules and GASP!! guidelines to follow?

My list of grievances would be incredibly lengthy and would draw a lot of scrutiny and scorn. And thus, I will save my fellow scoopers the hassle. I guess what I'm saying is, my grievances that I really feel strongly about, are not the views most people share now days, and I have no place to share those grievances, that's my grievance.  ;D

Admittedly, I am intolerant of things, many are not now days. the problem is, if I state them publicly, I'm looked down upon by society, because apparently, THEIR viewpoints/opinions/thoughts are the only one's that matter. That's another grievance of mine, we should be able to say what we feel/think now days without being ridiculed/ostracized for thinking that way. Ain't the same world i grew up in, that's for sure.

Seems like pretty much everyone is offended by something now days...It's part of the "snowflake" society we have built. Don't like someone saying something about you?? Grow a pair.

Just to be clear, if you forced an employee to wear a wig, or fired them you wouldn't have a practice anymore.
