    This week The Guardian reported on the new environmental campaign to get us to recognise our ‘water footprint’ – in other words, we are now being asked to factor into everything we consume the amount of water it would have taken to produce…

    One Response to Tankosphere Today: Aug. 22, 2008

    1. Darvin Dowdy, Houst says:

      I disagree w/Stossel. Actually its the opposite thats true. The youngsters need to be protected from mature workers.

      …my company seeks out older workers because they show up on time without a hangover and they don't have to be constantly supervised. They come to work well groomed and without a bunch of piercings and tatoos.

      Older workers excel especially in situations where they have to meet and deal with customers. They work harder to keep higher levels of customer satisfaction and retention. Older workers work smarter not harder. They get more done in less time.

      Generally speaking, of course. There are some variables.

      Personally I'll compete with the young, empty-headed squirts any day and out perform them.

      There are some great young folks, though. But their numbers are few and most are in [or have been in] the military. "Most" of the rest, however, have severe attitude problems/flaws. Very self serving and self centered. Zero common sense. Believe me, they're no competition. With a few wonderful exceptions.
