It takes self control. Our potential as humans is to rise out of animalistic expressions of fighting and being on the attack. It comes from the serpent brain, which has no real purpose in a civilized world. We have the potential to reason. Many people take the low road and revert to the primitive emotion of rage and shouting rather than exercising the higher reasoning centers of the mind. Two people in the heat of an argument are actually feeding off each other's anger. They are giving each other permission to behave that way by not walking away. They have given up on communicating and reason and are settling for just expressing frustration and aggravation by yelling and being dramatic. Nobody wins, but even knowing this, they carry on. They don't really care about how it effects other people around them because they are immature and self centered.

So maybe I need to jump in and start arguing whether someone went bankrupt or not,Ya that will make me look cool I think EVERY time Rewire posts that comes up. There were some ON topic posts that got buried in that nonsense.

Frankly, I could have used many other posted thread to apply to what I was really trying to say. It's no reflection on any one person.

Is business picking up, I say yes!

If one is not in an area where the need for eletrical service is not being required, well it's just not!

A lot of reflection of ones (employment or) business can be made in many aspects of how ones employed in the trade.

Frankly, I beleive some or if not most of the Business owners (that are failing) need to redirect themselves or frankly have an out of body experience to look at what they are doing verses what's out there to help them!

Hello!

I've run a business, and I'm still foolish...

I am the first to admit that I have a lot to learn. The thing I learned that has helped the most is to keep an open mind. Business owners who have blinders on never grow their businesses like guys who do. Most of us just like to argue.......well me anyway.....

We argue over everything. The ones that protest that are the ones that look silly. I'm mean honestly, who's post is more out of place, mine or yours. Quit being such a sissy.

Are you talking loss of work due to lack of manpower?

I revisited what you said and maybe I jumped the gun with my response. Sorry. I think I may have misinterpreted your post. Maybe that is why I am not a "MOD". Again, sorry.

I was meaning that if you were primarily a one man shop, as I was, it would be a good time to hire a helper/part-timer. I would never lose work because I did not want to expand.

I am having fun and I suspect Re-wire is as well.

If someone is ******ed around here I would say it is the one who keeps reading posts that piss them off.
