I emailed them months ago highlight the spelling error of PROFESSIONAL. I got a reply saying it would be forwarded to the correct department but it's still going on.

It really irritates me.

Does anybody have an opinion of how much longer they will continue to run this advertisment.

Nothing like a little public display of humiliation to help get the editorial ball rolling!

Perhaps one of you could offer your 'opinion' on this. I just read this thread and the initial post says (paraphrasing here) does anyone have an opinion on how long they (TR) will run the ad. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to use the word 'guess' instead of 'opinion'?

Thank you for your help, it's just really irritating me...

Careful, JD, Mae has become incredibly MEAN lately

by DMambo In reply to It really doesn't...

Take a look at this post as an example of how she's been going over the top with lashing out at innocent TR newbies.

If I were you, I would not clip my nails, eat loud nor apologize within a 50-mile radius of her.

She's like a beartrap just waiting to be sprung.

send me a mug and I won't hate you anymore.. :)

Just kidding, I don't hate you, I was only, you big whiny *** t*tty baby.

As far as the beartrap goes. Yep. Our union voted to strike. We're going to be locked in 10 hours each day, it's very ugly here right now. We've been given conflicting information by the hour at this point. I'm trying to be upbeat, but I am afraid this is all going to end very badly.

Strikes are no fun

by DMambo In reply to Careful, JD, Mae has beco ...

When you say "our" union, do you mean a union of people who report directly to you, or the union of shop floor workers (or similar positions)?

Either way, it sounds like a situation that sucks. The problem I've seen is that no matter which side is right and which is wrong, the relations get beat to **** and people carry a lot of animosity when they're back to work. Not to mention that often mgt looks for production alternatives after a strike. I've seen cases, where friends were working, where mgt basically looked at a new contract as a deadline for moving production to a more stable (cheaper) environment.

Good luck with all that. I'll keep my whining down for a while so as not to irritate you further.

Chin up!! I'll be here hoping for the best. :)
