...the guy might start getting a complex, and think nobody likes him!

Seriously, there are some borderline nasty things that have cropped up in some threads in jest, and while there's every reason to think that he has a thick skin, why go out of our way to find new ways to beat on the fellow?

And the real reason... Is Joe is actually 6'8 and just shy of 300 lbs, and an ex golden gloves boxer... and it would scare the biggebers out of me to say any of this stuff to his face... so it's my only outlet!

And actually, he was over here today... he loves this stuff... we were reading posts together and he was cracking up... telling me this was a good one, loved that, etc. So don't worry about hurting his feelings much.

But I'll try to calm it down... or at least use smaller words so he can understand. Dohh!! There I go again! :smilie39:

Yes, I'm sure he SAYS that---but since they cut that window opening into his office from the main sales floor, I've seen him sobbing uncontrollably staring at the monitor on his desk when I walk by after entering the store, candles lit and arranged about the room with the theme from Madame Butterfly playing softly in the background to soothe his savage soul.

Of course, for all I know it may be the Jessica Alba Appreciation Society site, but still...

Well, I sent an email to Joe askin about a price on a couple of spearguns the other day and he sent me back the pricing.... I call and talk to one of the other employees who told me the actual price was a bit higher which eh, no big deal... I started thinkin aloud and said, hm wonder where Joe got that price from... and his reply started with "Well, you know Joe.. he's..."

Even his employees are doing it! ;-)

(oh, and thanks Larry for letting Joe give away your money). You're alright in my book, too.

Yea, being an original surfer dude - California guy... Joe has always been a laker fan. Complete with Laker logo tattoo on his arm. So when he built his custom Titan Motorcycle, he decided to make it a Laker bike. Complete with purple with yellow accents, Laker Logo on the back, and then he got signatures from both Shaq and Kobe on the gas tank in yellow paint pen over the purple. Then had it clear coated over the signatures to seal them in.

Can we say over-board nut? Yes... Just not to his face. :smiley18:
