A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

if i saw someone stealing food, I wouldn't do anything.
If I saw someone stealing something else, I'ds probably sneak up behind them and say: "Don't forget to pay for that" just to f*** with them.

Have you ever dinged someone's car door and left without leaving a note?

We saw a guy in home depot trying to steal a very expensive paint brush, he hid it under a board on the lady scanning his items. First a bit of back story, he came about 6" from hitting me with this board and then cut me off to get in line ahead of us. he kept moving the board just right so the cashier didn't see it. My husband piped up and said, of don't forget that brush there, very politely. He glared back at us like he wanted to hit my husband, who just nicely smiled at the cashier. He yelled to my husband "it's not my fault she didn't see it, it's hers!" My husband said something about how if he didn't try so hard to hide it she would have seen it and that he could have put it on top of the board to make sure she scanned it. He again yelled that it was her fault not his paid then stormed out. The lady said thank you about 10 times.

Never dinged a car, if I did and it was noticeable I'd leave a note, if no trace was left, then no. I've had this happen to me three times, 2 times with no note, once someone came into an angled parking going the wrong way and did a ton of damage, he left a note! I can't believe he did. Good thing too since the repair cost almost a grand, and this was in 1998, luckily in CA where they DON'T have no fault, which was a bonus!

Oh forgot my question!

Less personal in these ways, but still a personal choice...

coke or pepsi?

Pepsi... specifically Max or diet with wild cherry.

Have you ever left a restaurant without leaving a tip?

Nope. Not ever.

Ever lie about your age? And in what context?

Once the service was so so bad. We're talking 20-25 minutes to orders, 2 1/2 hours to eat. Couldn't find the waiter for periods of time. Order screwed up. Not good.

What is that saying. Tip. "To insure promptness."

I lie about my age all the time. Am I 28 or 34? Only my mom knows for sure.
Have you ever door dinged someone's car and took off without leaving a note (or giving a shit)?

Are you on a manhunt? You asked the same thing a while back! Adding the part about not giving a shit does not make it a new question.
Got an original question?
