We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I used to run a small chain of ride-thru carwashes with gasoline pumps on the west coast. One of my rules was that employees jogged from one place (the gas pumps) to another (the carwash entrance). Except for those sunshiney weekend days after a few days of rain, when traffic was backed up to the street. Then everyone strolled from one work station to another. Smiles were still required, though.
Dominated the market in every town where I had a presence. I miss the carwash business.
