User Friendly

For the last few weeks, I have been making some decisions that have upset many people.

Today I was ‘interfacing’ with a group of people and was told, “You know, if you were a piece of computer software you’d have ‘Not User Friendly’ written all over your forehead”.

The statement made me laugh but it also made me realize not everything in life is a popularity contest - like the election.

If those people were sending a report card home with you, might it say, "Doesn't play well with others..."? Anyway, Ev is right. I wish I could find a copy of the old Chris LeDeaux song, "We Got a $5 Fine for Whinin'" for you.

Shine on, Ralph. Shine on.

(PS - new menu up at Nellie's)

You're right but you get better employee ratings if you try to win the popularity contest. Ask Char about student ratings.

Shampoo? I use a WalMart $2.54 equivalant to a $6.72 (at WalMart) bottle of Pantene. (paste this)

I'm not very popular at work lately. I think they didn't like the 40 minute meeting where I guess, so I heard, that I yelled at them for the whole 40 minutes. I don't think I was yelling, but I was trying to make it very clear what I won't be tolerating!!!
