A throw-away line in a comment I left in this thread got me to wondering if [redacted] has actually become a decent human being and I thought I'd try to find out. (Disclosure: I really doubt it, but maybe this'll be useful for the more forgiving (disclosure again: oblivious, willfully or otherwise, if you ask me) citizens of Bruins Nation.)
To that end, I'm going to use the most reliable social metric I know: how does he treat his maid (server, flight attendant, etc.)? My experience is mostly as a booze/food pusher, but I've also paid my dues behind a vacuum, shovel, pressure washer, and other implements that make better-lives-than-mine even more-better, and the dynamic is the same--most people treat you as well as their busy, probably shitty, days will allow, a few go out of their way to show you they appreciate your hard work, and a few go out of their way to prop up their fragile psyches by making sure the help knows its goddamn place (their boot-heel).
When [redacted] was in Iowa City, he and his wife spent (what seemed like) all of their free time pissing off every cup/mower/suit/hair/etc. jockey in eastern Iowa, so I'm reluctantly including his wife in this survey. Leave the kids out, please. They're only tangentially related to the question at best, and I try not to hold bad manners or general stupidity against people until they're allowed to rent a car.
So, if you've had any experience at work with [redacted] or his sidekick, please vote in the survey and drop an anecdote below. We need the HUMINT if we're to properly deploy our influence.
