Some folks just don't understand self reliance. too bad, cause if bad stuff happens , they can be counted on to curl up in a ball and weep.

Euc, I think it's interesting that she obviously pays considerable attention to you and she's very perceptive. Lots of dynamics going on there. Seems to me that she's given you a lot of thought. I wouldn't know what to make of it, either.
I also think, as others have posted, that if you just keep on doin' what you do there's a chance that you might make a positive impact on someone who's otherwise doomed to sheepledom.

Some people just don't get it. And it looks like she does not.

We're all missing the most important question here:
Is she hot?

+ 1 man you gotta give us the skinny on how she looks.

It doesn't matter, she's married and 15 years older than I am to boot.

hmmm...... I always have liked older women. It must be that experienced thing ...

This thread is useless without a picture.
Catch her on your cell phone or steal her ID and post it here.

I can't say much that hasn't already been said, at least 3 times, and very well said at least twice. Except this,
Good job Euc!
Off Topic, I waited a long time before I got a chance to use this little gem, but finally one day a coworker gave me the perfect opportunity. After a lengthy discussion, she told me I would see things from her perspective if I were “in touch with my feminine side”. I agreed. I then whipped out my cell phone dialed my wife, and handed her the phone... After taking the phone and giving me a very puzzled look, I told her that my feminine side” was on the other end of the line and she should explain it to her.
Which brings me to last bit of advice. Jokes are much more fun if you don't have to repeatedly explain yourself to two , by now, irritated women. It was still worth it though.

In a previous job all the really Knowledgeable people either left or were singled out and fired. It scares people that someone may in fact know what they are doing. It just highlights their own inabilities. They were scared of me because I didn't talk much and just focused on the job. That was because anything that might have been said could be used later. I did start talking more though keeping the discussions vary light. Just remember how to defend yourself in any verbal situations. I used some cheap shots when I was targeted just to make it not worth their while pursue the issue. Had to leave later anyway because they got smart and just patronized me to death over procedures that I helped develop. BTW this was at the time when I was not carrying for some years.

I have always dug women that can change a tire, cook, shoot guns and still be a lady....in other words, I like women that would frighten the crap out of Euc's colleague because she would be independent and strong.

Dejavu! This could also describe me and I too have been told I scare people. Twice in my career I have been unjustly accused of threatening a subordinate (that was about to fired) when I did not even raise my voice.

Euc, stay prepared and parents, continue to make your children and family feel safe in their homes and in your presence, it may be the greatest gift you can give the world. Imagine a generation of happy, confident indivuduals with goals and the determination to make them a reality.

On Sheep, Sheepdogs and Wolves
By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, U.S. Army (Ret.)
""Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind,
gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by
"Then there are sheepdogs," he went on, "and I'm a sheepdog. I live
to protect the flock and confront the wolf."...
We know that the sheep live in denial, which
is what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is
evil in the world.
The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like
the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence.
He is a constant reminder
that there are wolves in the land.
Until the wolf shows up! Then the entire flock tries desperately to
hide behind one lonely sheepdog.
Their only response to the wolf, though, is denial, and all too
often their response to the sheepdog is scorn and disdain.
It is denial that turns people into sheep. Sheep are psychologically
destroyed by combat because their only defense is denial, which is
counterproductive and destructive, resulting in fear, helplessness
and horror when the wolf shows up."
Well, sounds like she is a sheep and you sir remind her of the wolf she is denying exists.

Dave Grossman is quite a guy. I met him about 10 years ago, and have had the opportunity to hear him speak on several occasions. Very dynamic presentations, and he has a lot of great insights into this topic. He uses the sheep/sheepdog analogy a lot, and it makes sense to me. I've got an autographed copy of his book "On Killing," which looks at the psychological and sociological effects of combat on soldiers and society.
Euc, just keep doing what you're doing and sleep well at night knowing that you've made the choice to have some control over your own destiny.
