Shallow, petty, appearance-driven, busy-body neighbors harass charity efforts for people with disabilities.

by Hawke — last modified Nov 27, 2017 05:04 PM

I'm going to have to temporarily cut back a number of my charity programs because of the beginning warnings of harassment from shallow neighbors. This saddens me greatly about such human beings, but we'll adapt and find a way to bounce back eventually. I always suspected how shallow some of our neighbors were. Last week this was unfortunately confirmed. I am going to try to find property away from such self-involved, shallow, selfish neighbors (though likely will take years to save up for such a move, this is when it begins). This is in the Whitworth University area, North Five mile area, Forest Hills are, of Spokane, Washington.

The TSC Fiasco

by Hawke — last modified Aug 26, 2016 06:45 PM

In 2000, I turned down IBM & Pacific Bell to accept a position as Senior Principal (Junior VP) for a publicly traded company known as "Technology Solutions Company" (TSC), but due to a single HR person with a warped view of things, it was very short lived. This posting sums up my perspective on the events around what I call "The TSC Fiasco"...
