Maybe you never learned to read a tape measure or a scale. Or are just too lazy to do two things at one time. Running two machines at the same time would cut into your on the job drinking time.

    And we didn't have "maintenance guys". We had millwrights, electricians, tool and diemakers, pipefitters, and other trades but no general maintenance people.

    What does our certificate from the US Department of Labor say? Oh, you don't have one of those? No surprise there.
    Tool and die maker, that term seems to be used loosely. Being proud of running a saw and calling it running a machine, and bragging about owning 5 drill presses seems to say other wise. I have been in many a toolroom where a drill press wasn't found. I have never bought precut material in my life, I can post a picture of 12 foot bars if you like, and a saw. Also believe it or not there are machines that can run 12 foot bars whole, I have two of those. What is a certificate from the department of labor? I doubt whatever it takes to get that wasn't available to me, the longest I ever stayed on a job was just short of 4 years, the shortest 4 days.

    You really need to stop with what you consider multitasking, you are making yourself look real pathetic, to say the least. Might as well brag of being able to walk and chew gum at the same time. Your upbringing seemed to limit your exposure, and you haven't any desire to expand it using something called the internet. I have been in shops where someone could run six machines spitting out parts while drinking beer, eating pizza while sitting in a lawn chair, watching a football game, they weren't controlled by a computer either.

    I would never touch a child, your insults are as pathetic as they get. I would have asked him to stop and then took it up with his parents if he didn't.

    So you have no formal training in machining, drink on the job, beat people up, have never worked at a place for over 4 years, have a girlfriend and not a wife. What a pathetic loser. No wonder you're a TRUMP CULT MEMBER. You have a lot in common with trump. How often do you trade in girlfriends?

    And what is the last grade that you completed in school? I'm guessing you dropped out in the ninth grade.

    And were those people sitting in lawn chairs drinking beer "running" machines or "operating" machines?

    You mentioned that you have "dropped" a few people and have also mentioned that you think that I'm a pussy for calling a flight attendant to deal with a little brat. I wonder if that little brat's name was kyle rittenhouse. Probably not as he's probably older than that by now. It sounds like you don't get out much but if you ever have an experience like I had I'd still recommend calling a flight attendant instead of trying to deal with it yourself. That is unless you never want to fly again.

    What purpose is posting this garbage? I cannot believe for the life of me how someone like you is tolerated, even here. You would not be tolerated anywhere else on the web I have been. Now am I now accused of beating people up? While I have been in more of my share of fights they were in a boxing ring or self defense. You have a right to self defense in this country, most of my physical confrontations were defending someone else, I did not like bullies. I would rather embarrass a person than hurt them, a little skills go a long way against the average Joe.
    Usually if a person realizes they are in over their head they will do the smart thing and give up, never had to beat anyone up. Last time I was hit was 25 years ago and I was breaking up a fight. The punch knocked my cowboy hat off but I just shoved the guy back into the long couch like seat as the bouncers were coming. Knocking a guys cowboy hat of is akin to calling a dude a she, why don't you knock the hat off the next cowboy you see and prove me wrong?

    When did you get the I am a coward tattooed on your forehead? Was the kid kicking your seat while the parents were laughing and telling him to keep it up? That would have been the only reason to tattle. Of course anyone with a brain knows not to create a commotion on a plane.

    Do you guys have a problem with short-term memory ? All of you were jumping up and down with glee, "Big B is a pussy ! He can't even stand up to a ten year old ! Ha ha ha !"

    Not that I give a shit but can you at least be a little consistent ? You twirling is making me dizzy.

    Asking a parent in a calm manner to control their child isn't creating a commotion. If the parents lose their cool and you remain calm you aren't the one who will be in trouble. What about that is hard to understand?

    You posted recently that you dropped a couple of guys when you were younger and got out of there before the law got there.

    Parents had earbuds in and were doing their best to not pay attention to anything around them. I gave the kid a look a couple of times but he kept it up. That's when I decided to let the professionals handle it. That was the first time that I ever had a problem like that on a plane but I'm sure the flight attendants have seen plenty of it.

    If you should ever find yourself in a similar position do whatever you think is right. I still believe that I did the right thing and if something similar happens again I will do the same thing.

    Given the people flying these days, I'd say it would be wiser to ask the stewardess.

    But more to the point, y'all were squealing in glee that BB didnt take on a ten year old and beat him to a pulp, now it's "don't make trouble."

    Like, pick a side, if you would ? You're making my neck sore.

    Don't call them stewardesses. They are flight attendants. We have a long term friend that is also a 30 year plus flight attendant and she half jokingly told us that she has spilled coffee in peoples laps for doing that.

    Too bad. And if she spilled coffee in my lap on purpose she'd be out of a job.

    People can take their political correctness and put it where the sun doesn't shine.

    So you have taken up lying about people's posts also, please quote where I was alluding that anyone should beat up a ten year old? I called him a coward, and you very well know I expected him to use words. Now you and that other liar Big B say I am condoning hitting children. What kind of nut attacks a person for traits they made up out of nowhere that don't exist?

    Have you got a short circuit upstairs or something ? Every single one of your little group was jumping on BB and calling him a coward for asking the stewardess to take care of the kid. So what's the other option ? Get in a fight with the parents ? Are you as stupid as you write ? Or just want to play both sides of the game ?

    Well I have had that before the kid finally was settled down by his parents or zookeepers I am not sure exactly what they were. Airports and airplanes are designed to steal your soul as there are so very many annoying things which happen while traveling.

    Do want to know the one worst thing there is for me about flying?

    Me arms get too tired!

    I thought it might work is to turn around and ask the kiddo if he would please stop and if they continue. Offer the kid 5 dollars to behave. If he says nothing in return then the parent will usually make them pipe down. Don’t pay them until you find people who will match your five dollars like one of his parents. You can even ask the flight attendant to pitch in. Be ready for a sucker punch. Remain gracious and polite expect them to act reasonable. Don’t escalate but be watchful.

    Tell them that you understand the tension while flying. That sometimes when it gets rough or you feel unsafe that you will start praying openly and might even pull out a rosary or Muslim prayer beads and begin praying. Heck if B, Malice, and EG were on the plane I would use two Muslim prayer beads in one hand and two in the other hand and likely could even have one of each in each hand. I would pray in Latin.

    Tell them you do that for everyone’s safety on the plane! I bet some may even ask for parachutes so they should not hear such nonsense.

    Heck everyone has to put up with kids misbehaving. It is a touchy subject. Has anyone ever witnessed a parent go be seek and strike a child in a situation like that ? Some parents are wound pretty tight a are not very mentally stable. After all consider the fact that they have chosen to travel that day on a airplane!

    It is necessary to take a flight sure and no one likes the things which happen on a regular basis in that setting. The person praying probably feels they are doing the best thing. Be very glad passengers don’t have their pets in the seats. I do not know if service animals are allowed or not I have not seen one on a plane.

    So you can't call a female a stewardess and a male a steward anymore?
    Why is she prickly - is she halfway through an op - going for "the change"? Wants to be a steward?
    What a mad world we're heading towards.
    Political correction BS.

    When's the Whitehouse going to be renamed?
    Same as UK and Whitehall - I'm surprised no one has complained about that (to be fair half the world prolly did back in the day as that's where all the wars started from )
    Probably best to not speak to anyone as they can't be offended then....

    I dunno, looks like it could be laid on its side in your buddies shop and this is the result after you borrowed his printer.

    Anyways, just for kicks I opened up the switchgear on my Union pillar drill and found this Lambo and hot chick inside.

    She said she didn't know anything about GM wiring diagrams and its likely that any man that feels the need to brag about such likely has erectile issues. I agreed and wished her well.

    Anyone else here had a similar experience?
