    If they're that worried about how people are spending their time they should hire people with better character and work ethic, and in turn they should maybe question those that do the hiring since this seems to be such a problem. But wait, I forgot. Everything is the locator's fault.
    I hear ya about character and work ethic Boots, but we've both seen what kind of shining examples 12 bucks an hour buys you in Chicagoland. You CANNOT expect mature, responsible, and talented individuals to line up for less than a realistic living wage around these parts. Even in a recession.

I will no longer talk about any other subject as well. I will watch you guys share your thoughts and opinions but I will no longer sign on. I must put my family first. I wish all well!!!

    Well, with this economy, and the current state of mass layoffs all over the country, people are feeling the pressure. If Chicagoman feels he will be better protected by leaving the forums, then it's his choice. I wish him well, and hope that he finds himself in a position where he feels he can return.

    Remember, "Freedom of Speech" has limitations. it mainly pertains to Politics, not discussing your employer or work situations in an open forum. Also, if you are using the company laptop they are within their rights to control that usage.

    wait...are you saying the original poster of this thread is no longer employed with USIC?

    If so...how do you know? And do I detect an underlying hint of threat...?

    I do hope I'm imagining things, but profile whose profesion is "mad boss" who's interests are "firing locators" is a bit...ummmm...unsettling...

    With all due respect to the rest of you, I know I'm new here, and I DO enjoy starting shit at times, but the "Paintcan" character is a douchebag!
    I'm sure I wasn't the only one to recognize that he wasn't a real locator right away.

    I kind of wish I did work for USIC(whatever that means) so I could teach him a lesson in respect when he tried to fire me for not taking his shit. (I'm wicked at karate, kickboxing, capoeira-train 6 days a week, that;s why I took this job, I don't take ANYONE's shit!) These are the people that keep me in business and the rest of you unneccessarily fearful and your companies shi##y. He claims to have 7 yrs exp locating, but is now behind a desk. Probably some fat ass or some geek or both.
    I met many a guy like him. They were never the locators they claimed to be, nobody liked them, they never stayed in their positions very long, (but long enough to F#$K up other hard working peoples lives) and judging from his writing he's not too intelligent(unless that's all a delicious ruse). I'm sure he thought it brilliant to use that handle because the rest of us are too dumb to figure it out.

    ostracize this puke, and if you you know him give him the punch in the head he needs. (It will take me too long to get there).

    While it goes without saying there will be employers on this site, most of you seem to be hardworking locators who shouldn't have to worry about homo's like that guy when you need to vent to the only other people that can relate to you. F#%K him and his grim reaper.

    Ok, pet peeve. I gotta call you on it.

    There - a location

    Their - a term of posession

    They're - a conjunction of They and Are this is the one you wanted!

    I'm not even going to touch the punctuation issues....
