If you don't really it's an April Fools Day joke I'm not sure how you can claim to be smarter than Bushie.

... says the guy who can't string together a coherent sentence.
Touche.

But seriously, its an April Fools Day joke.
I don't think you know Bushie that well.

Seriously Bushie. Don't let the Oklahoma Wind blow you from this job to a call center or to a scam. If there is something very specific to your experience at [Redacted] that just makes it an unbearable experience at least apply to another simple retail job where your odds of lasting a full year are vaguely within the realm of possibility. I stand by my pizza delivery suggestion. You get to sit most of the time in that job. But whatever, just make sure it's an actual job. Let's not have a repeat of the On Company or Rainbow Play Systems.

1. Bushie, when you played your joke on your mother, how did you pronounce 1400? Did you say "fouteen hundred hours" or "fourteen o'clock" or what.
2. I know and frequently see people fatter than Bushie who are employed. The obesity is not the only issue, and Bushie does all the good, hardworking fat people a major disservice.
3. What are the odds that Bushie doesn't know what the job is that he applying for, only that it offers "unlimited opportunity!!!!!111"

But only someone who is a rabid secularist would deny that weddings are usually viewed as religious ceremonies.
Marriage can be a churchy thing, if that's your inclination, but that's by no means a necessary condition. As far as the government is concerned, it's simply a civil contract.
If flowers or catering were a requirement for civil marriage, you'd have a point.  My point is that there are people who view marriage as a primarily churchy thing and requiring them to participate in a marriage ceremony that their religion would not allow is an impingement upon freedom of religion.  A minor impingement to be sure, and if it were for something more vital than celebrating a wedding, say ensuring that people could travel freely or have a reasonably equal opportunity to get a job or housing, it's an impingement that would be necessary to secure the rights of others.
We needn't structure our laws around a few nutters here and there, who for whatever reason, incorrectly believe that a wedding, by definition, has to be a religious ceremony. That's just a flatly absurd suggestion.

Viewed by whom? You may want to take a look at the religious demographics of people who are of prime marrying age. About 1/3 of young adults claim no religious affiliation whatsoever. And yet, most of these folks still want to get married sooner or later should they find the right partner. Marriage can be a churchy thing, if that's your inclination, but that's by no means a necessary condition. As far as the government is concerned, it's simply a civil contract.
And Pence is now blaming "Obamacare" for his anti-gay law. If ever a suggested deserved a Roll Eyes this is it.

Google informs me that there is a [redacted] in OKC. Have they ever been to that location? Even just out of curiousity now that you work for the company?

Bushie's predictions are always sad to read. I belief he was supposed to be 150 lbs by now according to his 2013 weight projections.
[/quote]
Forget 2013. Just last week, he was predicting that he would lose several pounds per shift. He should be well on his way just by that projection.

Are you under the impression that drug abuse isn't a major problem? If you want to argue that how we address the problem isn't helping, and, instead, creates more problems, I'd agree with you, but it isn't as if chronic drug abuse is a completely harmless thing either.

It is a little bit concerning that every single thing is super peachy at Bushie's job. No job is perfect. That Bushie tries to paint such a rosy picture all the time makes me think that he's hiding something. Bushie, name something about your job that is less than perfect. Anything.

Maybe the problem isn't with Bushie, but with [redacted]. I mean, how much of a market could there really be for a grocery store like that in exurban Oklahoma? All they care about up there is getting their processed corn syrup for as cheap as possible. And they already have Walmart for that.

It'll start with them trying to reduce people's hours and then Jeff will start getting Sundays off and be happy about that. Then they'll start giving him Fridays off too and then, woohoo, three day weekend every weekend! And then one day he'll pull into the parking lot only to find that the lights are off and the place is completely shuttered and his last paycheck is mysteriously missing.

I disagree with this assessment. We don't have any [redacted]s in Jackson+suburbia, but the Fresh Market and Whole Foods are always packed. Fancy grocery stores are a gold mine in any sufficiently populated area.
Same here. There are a lot of people who fit Indy's description, and there are a lot who don't. Cities are extremely diverse. I look forward to the day that the Atlas notices.

Jesus. There is nothing more provincial and small minded than people who have to insist that their home town or state ( and their sports team) is just the best darn place in America.

Bushie not getting scheduled on Easter was just God showing off.

I like how so many of us can come together and agree that the forum is terrible at discussing religion, regardless of what sort of discussion it is that we'd prefer.
In this forum's defence, I think most places are bad at discussing religion.
This is true because there's nothing substantive to be said about it. There are no data points to consider and no evidence to weigh. Any religious discussion, by definition, is just a tedious back and forth on semantics, feelings, and navel gazing, with a heavy tribal sociological component.

Baptist church is orderly and boring. Very much for little old ladies. It's the Pentacostals that go nuts.

Lately a lot of Baptist churches have started going nuts too. A lot of them have a "traditional" service and a "contemporary" service each Sunday morning.
Nuts is a subjective thing. A "contemporary" Baptist service is more likely to feature a Christian rock band than speak in tongues.

I'm sure there somewhere nice enough in OKC to justify the massively lower cost. Cities are endlessly diverse places. The implied homogeneity in these polls is na´ve beyond words.

communion bread and grape juice.  (Baptists generally use grape juice instead of wine).

...
Baptists are strongly opposed to the beneficial cardiac effects of moderate alcohol consumption. When you eat and drink, everything must be unhealthy. Everything.

Cranberry juice is low in sugar. That's why it also tastes awful, and is never sold straight, except sometimes in the "natural" section of the grocery. All that Ocean Spray stuff is only about 20% actual cranberry.

I don't want to share a squalid place with 14 roommates, so that rules out Coastal California and Metro NYC. So, between the Central Valley and Upstate NY, I guess I'd go with Buffalo, Rochester, or Syracuse.

Depends where exactly in either one, obviously.

It's my favorite current show, but it's time. There's nothing worse than a show like the Simpsons, that just keeps on producing junk years and years (seriously, so many years) after jumping the shark.
