This is possibly the most fun I've had reading a thread in this forum. Keep up the good work, guys.

I had big plans for me as the TD doing all sorts of stuff during the event. When my phone started ringing at 6am and didn't stop until after the 2 minute warning I quickly learned the importance of having a good and reliable team assembled to get work done. I wasn't surprised by the amount of work at the event, but was surprised by how little I could help with that work.

I just wrote a long post regarding the answers, but it's just not worth it.

I don't care anymore.

Fair enough. Hopefully you will start caring soon about truthfulness, humility, kindness, and graciousness in the way you communicate here.

And I will freely admit that my posts too often probably come across on the readers' end needing more humility and kindness. I will continue to try to improve.

How can an opinion be dishonest?

Nevermind....I'm wrong. Always wrong. I have no idea what I'm talking about. I wasn't a touring pro for years, didn't play more sanctioned rounds in a year than anyone else in the world, haven't ran over 20 events including a major and haven't marshalled multiple world championships. I always forget that....

How you appear to others:

What you think of yourself:


Get over your self accomplishment list. I think you have listed it enough times on this site now for the whole world to know. It doesn't make what you say mean anything more than anyone else's words. No one is impressed, no one cares. If you want people to take you seriously, and you obviously do, then be more tactful in your rhetoric.
With your background and knowledge you should have something more to add than "you are all idiots," "how do you question me," and "my way is the one and only way, anything else is rubbish."

I probably have as much hair as that camal, but I don't smoke. But I do own lots of purple shirts. And my gf is pretty smoking hot.

So not bad.
