      Yep, my boss was required to pay my accrued vacation time when I left, but he didn't have to pay me sick time. IIRC, the sick time was just a few days given out out at the fist of the year and it...

      Having a military background you could probably nab up an IT job with the military (or a contractor) very easily. I have a friend with no post-high school education making $80K a year, which is...

      You guys are troopers. I must be European or something, but I couldn't work more than ~45 hours on a consistent basis. Sure, if it was 55 one week, then 25 the next sure, but seems like for most...

      ^I'm not too worried about financial side of things. Of course we have a high level of debt that will grow over time, but at least we're a growing country, rather than places like Japan and Germany....

      ^Yeah, really. I don't think I'll ever understand oil/gas prices, but I'm glad for the lower prices. I typically don't pay attention to gas prices, but it's hard not to notice a $7 less at fill-up...

      I used to hang out on a golf forum and there was a thread one time about how a particular model of counterfeit golf clubs had flooded ebay, but they had come from the actual factory. I think the guy...

      I don't think the OP was being literal, but if he is, then I disagree. However, I do think the US (maybe even the West in general) is on a decline.

      Thanks guys. I feel much better this week. Production has been really good, but I've taken a lot of the grunt tickets which is fine. I'm slowly acclimating to how they do things and most everybody...

      The recall says that there is a laceration risk from the airbag deploying. I think they switch out a bracket or something. So, it's not life or death necessarily.

      As far as the MPG scandal goes,...
    12. Hyundai dealer refusing service until recall taken care of

      My Elantra is a part of that Hyundai MPG scandal. I take my car in every year to the dealer to document the mileage and then Hyundai sends me a check.

      Okay, so I go the other day and they...

      Sorry to hear about that.

      Yeah it sucks. So many people just "go with the flow" because they don't want to raise a fuss. I was in that boat a few weeks ago. My position was clearly non-exempt, but I was paid salary. I...

      I'm not sure if draining ATF on a higher mileage transmission is okay or not. I'll leave it to others to debate. I don't think I'll ever do a flush, at least not on a car that already runs well. ...
