    But got back with same company this week! I'm BAAACK😉 Our company makes thermal print heads, the guts of the little machines you see in grocery stores giving receipts and gas station receipts and bar code readers. One of the few in the US in that manufacturing niche.

    Congratulations; cool to be back in the same business, assuming the people who laid you off are since gone themselves!

    Thanks everyone. It shows even old farts like me can find employment, even if it is only 30 bucks an hour, but not bad at age 78 I would say.
    First week was a bitch though. Two major machines down with RF problems I thought I would never solve, turned out to be a cold solder joint and I got it going putting out 1800 watts, not bad for a 1500 watt generator🙂 Both sputtering tools had to have what we call 'wet clean' and each one had to have target change, a real pissser of a job, targets weigh about 50 pounds and has water flow, RF connections and such and is what allows us to deposit a hard coating of silicon carbide onto the thermal print heads where it needs it.
    It coats about 1 micron thick coating where the paper gets scrapped across the head where the print magic happens. Anyway, that is mostly done so I can rest for a while and we are taking a trip from Pennsylvania where we live to see my wife's brother in West Palm down in Florida, he is in second stage alzheimers so it might be the last time he is lucid enough to recognize his blood sister. Sad to see, he was a colonel in the USAF, where I only got to E3 after 4 years🙂

    The WAPS was an unfair program. I made it to buck Sgt. and finished my enlistment when I found that a flunky from Base Recreation would have a higher re-enlistment bonus.

    So much for "Air Force needs".

    So you are now employed by an evil money making corporation that is oppressing you and the rest of us?

    Congrats!!

    You can't even struggle up a bit of apathy, can you? At least then, you could have ignored him completely. But no, your need to somehow "get back at him" (for what, I don't know) overrode all other considerations and you had to pull out your tired old "anti-empathy" from your narcissism bucket. Nice work for a sociopath.

    Suzie Q, you could have not said anything and avoided it all together.

    What medical papers do you have that would prove he is a sociopath....How do not know it is just his persona on here, you may meet an entirely different person out in the real world if you met him/her....one never know on here for sure!!!

    I guess the person he was replying too is part of your little group?
