Re: A bad way to start.

Restaurants nationwide are starving for workers in this high employment economy. This statement is incorrect.

Restaurants willing to pay appropriate wages , or in server positions restaurants with a good business never have difficulty finding good employees.

Re: A bad way to start.

Shame about the boat.

That looked like a really rough tow off the beach. I thought you could see the rudder bounce, then dig in and drag. That can't have been good.

Neck tattoo is kinda like a boat: The entry cost pales in comparison to the long term expenses. In this case, all the jobs he's not gonna get because of his cool neck ink.

At least he does not have a nose ring. They creep me out especially on a woman. Tatoo's are hopefully just a fad too. IMO they look like dirt on peoples bodies from a distance. Personally I took a lesson from The Who regarding them .

Re: A bad way to start.

Sounds like no knowledge of sailing was the fundamental problem.

Getting blown ashore but the sail cover was still on?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Ahhhh, you’re just old fogies!

I don’t have any tattoos, I think they’re kinda dumb, but they are the norm now. Last time I dealt with a banker she had tattoos. I know a surgeon who’s totally tatted up. Last year my county changed the regulations, now deputies are allowed to have visible tattoos. I know a couple suburban soccer moms who have all their kids’ names tattooed.

They are more widely accepted than in the past but they ain't "the norm now".

They're just as trashy as they ever were it's just that society has become trashier.

Old fogie? Maybe but, it still looks like they need to wash the grime off parts of their bodies. I'll make exceptions for a gal who has the "If you can read this. Let's Party!" tattoo on her butt.

Re: A bad way to start.

Like so many behaviors, the appearance of an increase in tattoos is exaggerated to think it's the norm. Today, only about a third of kids get tattoos, which keeps them firmly in the minority. That's roughly doubled in their generation, from previous generations, but it's still the exception. Marijuana is the same. There is an increased use, but it's still the distinct minority.

Hair and piercings have been used for self expression, but more easily changed, when your desire to express changes. Removing a tattoo is doable, but it requires breaking up the heavy metals one volunteered to put under their skin, into small enough particles that the body will digest and excrete them. The reason tatoos fade is the smallest of the original injected particules were already digested. The largest can't be. Worse yet, the ingredients in tatoo ink are not regulated, nor disclosed. Some are tested to contain lead, for example.

Re: A bad way to start.

Still remember and respect the WWII vet I knew when I was a kid who had a simple faded anchor tattoo on his arm. Kids with tattoo snakes crawling up their arms not so much.
