You're close! He wouldn't have the lollypop is his mouth. He would be telling all of those guys exactly how to get him out of there. Then, he would explain ad nauseum how it wasn't his fault he was in that situation.

I work about 2 blocks from silver03. silver, do you think maybe we can set something up on a day when XXX is heading out on his bike in all his "gear"? If we time it right I can come around the corner and take his picture. Which way does he typically go when he leaves? If he heads down Republican to Westlake I could probably snap him at that light pretty easily.

His comings and goings change a little bit. I guess it depends on if he is scootin' through the U-District to impress the chicks or if he has to get home to the wife. Next time he rides in, I'll PM you with a heads up.

He is pretty easy to spot. Because the scooter chick helmet and the ICON jacket aren't just yellow, they're YELLOW!

We have continuous roll towel dispensers in our bathrooms at work. Like most places, everybody here uses them, but only a handful of folks will bother to replace the roll when it is finished. Changing the roll is easy, there are instructions printed inside the metal hood. Changing the roll can be a noisy affair. Especially when you're pissed off at whoever couldn't be bothered to replace the roll, but had plenty of time and energy to jam the end of the roll back up inside so it looks like they didn't use the last of the roll. I guess a somewhat clear conscience is priceless. Anyway, one day I'm in the bathroom changing out the roll with the door open.
Silver, if you want to have some fun, instead of changing the towel dispenser roll, try this:
Pull enough material out of the back of the towel dispenser to loop the front of the material back to the very top front of the dispenser. Leave a big enough hanging loop of cloth so that it appears normal. Then secure the end on top of the machine with cups of water,cans of Comet cleanser, or whatever is handy. XXX will get quite a surprise when he yanks on the towel. That is, if he actually washes his hands after using the facilities.

Talking XXX FT

Silver:

I have had the unfortunate title 'boss's Son'. Yep, I got this by genetics AND the unfortunate nature of MOST MA/PA's and their unfortunate focus on 'the business' and not on the kids...

I could go on and on about the tendency of many of these great business people(I've known mabee 40-50 of these entrepreneurs) who promise a child at age 4-6 that 'someday this will all be yours'- gotta tell ya, the kids sure not motivated to goto med school!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I'm reading the thread from begining to almost the end and I'm feeling bad for you and bad for XXX Ftard (Poor pathetic dick)

THEN I GET TO THE Part about the FT's 70mph Scoot helmet ...

I ALMOST SWALLOWED MY TONGUE

I'm sure you are glad you have forgotten many of the f'tards logic responses.

BUT, those lines that you can remember, keep them coming!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, it IS quite common to pay one or many of the sibblings in a family business NOT to show up a friend of mine, his sister was soo disruptive, the DAD finally agreed to get her to 'telecommute' for a 6figure salary.
She thought this sucked until she realize she could got to the gym/lunch with girls/wax /pedicure and pick up the kids before dinner.- and get paid for it!

Sammy,

I thought about what you wrote. The issue here is that the sons are not considered employees by the dad or themselves. In fact, XXX acts as if his dad is the King and he is a Prince. As funny as that sounds, it's true. So, he and the vp wander around with this air of "might makes right". Like "what are you going to do?" It can get real tiring at times.

Meanwhile....

The first time XXX lubed his chain, he ended up with an oily mess that was on the chain, the swing arm, the rim and about 1/4 of the tire

Today I noticed a line of chain lube running down his swing arm.

Talking TripleX LUBE

Silver03:

He probably tossed an entire can of 30w oil on the chain, like his dad once told him to on his tricycle!!

Heheh

I though about my post after I posted it too. I never, ever want to sound like I am defending these dudes (true meaning of the word DUDE.)

BUT they, as you suggest, kinda get 'set up' to be the 'tard prince/princess in the family business senario.

I am out of touch (thankfully) with many of these f'tard types, so keep the updates coming and Silver, please keep that great ,dry sense of humor both in this thread and on the job, it helps believe me!

Sammy

P.S. I can see you in minds eye walking past that bike, trying hard not to spit up/ grin as you watch the lube running everywhere

Part of what makes me so merciless on XXX is that if you looked up "Mr. Know It All" in the dictionary, you would see his picture. I don't care who you are or where you've been or what you've done, he can top it. You think you know something? Ah, you don't know shit! When I was in the Air Force, we used to call guys like him the "360 year old guys". Because that's about how long they would have to have lived to do/be/see all of the things they said they had.

I try to impart some of what I know to him. Like suggesting ear protection when riding a motorcycle. Seems I got that wrong, too.

One of the guys at work, not a bullshitter, told a story about a friend of his who, back in the day, came flying around a corner on his motorcycle only to find a semi tractor/trailer across the road. He laid the bike over and slid underneath it. Could XXX top that? You betcha! In his story, the guy lays it over, slides under the trailer, comes out the other side, brings the bike back up and continues on his way. Yes, without stopping!

Monday I had the best chance at a picture but no camera in hand. I was walking back to the shop and here he comes around the corner. He was in the full yellow ICON jacket/scooter chick helmet/funky sunglasses, complete with cigarette. Dang!

Thanks for keeping this going, silver03!

Your interactions with this assclown are hilarious.

When I first started reading it... I saw the faces of all of the people I know that are like this. But somehow, your guy seems like he could trump them all.

"coming out under the trailer and snatching it back up without stopping!" PLEASE HELP ME, I CAN'T BREATHE!!!! BWWAAAAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAA-HAAAAA!

I think I wet myself.

Oh, I don't know...

usually the pictures in my head are more entertaining than the real thing.

Cheers to Silver03 for making the 'pictures' I have so funny.

Well, since the last time I set foot on an AFB was 27 years ago on the 24th of this month, it may be a little outdated.

One day, the vp starts grilling me on how to make a spread sheet in Excel. He asks me everything. I mean everything. When it is all finished, he runs next door to his dad's office and says "Look what I just did!"

Nowadays, he hands me these Excel spread sheet cryptic messes and thinks I'm some kind of idiot because I can't make sense of them.

XXX didn't ride today. It seems he pheumatically nailed his thumb the other day.

Me: Where's you motorbike (he asks me this same question everyday that I ride my bicycle instead).

XXX: It's at home. Dude, check it out. I nailed my thumb. The nail followed the grain and got me.

Me: Ouch!

XXX: Yeah, I decided not to ride the Honda because...It hurts when I push the horn button.

Me: Oh.
