    Yup, definitely qualifies for The Misfits.

    Can we have a Definition for "principled character"?
    Sure, it’s nothing to do with being superficially popular, adopting group-think attitudes or slipping snide side-of-mouth remarks when forthright honesty is required.

    How’s that?

    Not popular.
    Does not follow the group.
    I do make snide remarks though 🤔
    I'm brutally honest.

    Yea, that honesty thing they really don't like.

    I know from experience! 😉

    There’s letters sealed; and my two schoolfellows,
    Whom I will trust as I will adders fanged,
    They bear the mandate; they must sweep my way
    And marshal me to knavery. Let it work,
    For ’tis the sport to have the enginer
    Hoist with his own petard; and ’t shall go hard
    But I will delve one yard below their mines
    And blow them at the moon. O, ’tis most sweet
    When in one line two crafts directly meet.

    People hate people who claim the truth, in the midst of a lie.

    I was asked what my worst fault was.
    I replied I often started drinking on a Thursday lunch time and pretty much continued through till Sunday night.
    I didn't get the job.

    You are one that can't handle the truth!

    You got a clan that could be in the top 5 and yet there you are on 2nd page. Do you have double digits yet for points? I haven't checked in a while. 😉

    A job interview wouldn't be the place to be making drinking jokes!!!
