Rse I do not go around micromanaging their speech patterns or anything else. However that is not because I don't want to or because I am morally superior to that kind of behavior. Instead it is because home Depot hires convicted felons. I don't have any method of finding out which particular one has...

"Please" is not a tongue twister and not hard to pronounce, for me. "Can you" is two syllables and "please" is just one syllable. "please" is short for "if you please", which means "if you want". "Can you" sounds like just b/c you...

My guess is that he was being a tad malicious but backed off when he figured out he might get into trouble for it. Safeway's management crows about its reputation on diversity and inclusion, and wouldn't take kindly to an employee bringing them into disrepute in case they get downgraded by the Huma...

"precision of language" ("the giver") At my job at home Depot, all customers and associates phrase requests as "can you". "Can you" is not specific enough. "Can you" could mean "do you know how", "will you", "are you allowed ...

Bee

Nobody is perfect

One quality could be a good thing in one situation and a bad thing in a different situation

For example, some job descriptions specify "outgoing", but outgoing is not always a good thing

It is not possible to objectively measure the quality of a character trait

Today I had barely walked inside Safeway when some dude in a security guard uniform had the nerve to walk towards me, with an over exaggeration of my walking gait. "You got a pimp walk", he had the nerve to tell me. "The way that I walk is a function of autism", I told him. Then ...
