Their CEO doesn't commute here.   He lives in Monroe Township and he and his wife are very active in the community.

Their CEO doesn't commute here.   He lives in Monroe Township and he and his wife are very active in the community.

So what do YOU call his trip from Monroe Township to the HQ?

Here is the definition of commute for you.

Quote
1.  travel some distance between one's home and place of work on a regular basis.

I am guessing it is "some distance" between his home - in Monroe Township - to work - at HQ - in the City.

I am also guessing he probably goes to work "on a regular basis."  Most CEO's I know do that.

So I would say my statement is very accurate.  I didn't say he lived out of town, or that he traveled far.

Thanks for playing.

Care to explain to me how my statement was wrong?

Any reasonable person would assume someone "commuting here" is doing more than driving across town.

But whatever.   If it makes you feel superior, by all means consider yourself right.

I think if you look in the mirror you will realize you were the one trying to feel superior?

But hey - if you want to project - go for it.  Frankly my dear, I don't give a darn.

I would call that a "Business Trip."

Now Fuzz - he commutes to Mexico.

I kind of like them though.

I have a lazy boy from 1963 that's still ok. I had to replace some of the springs. It's in my sons basement.
I have 3 others 2 of which are leather. The other cloth one is probably 25 years old that I use all the time..

I had very good luck with the older stuff that age that I bought too.  I got a complete living room set after I moved up here in '95 or so but didn't have as much luck.....had to replace 3 or so reclining mechanisms over the first 5 years or so.

I will say their fabrics hold up well......but I'm still butt sore from the new HQ ransom they held the city to.

I don't believe any company should get incentives (corporate welfare).

I don't think anyone or anything should get welfare.....

But I doubt local municipalities and states sign up together to stop offering them.

Personally I like the official yoga burn site at http://www.danielleaubert.com/yoga-burn-review-results/ but I think their chairs are over priced.


Same here, you're kind of paying for the brand.

Exactly.  Kind of like Monroe Shocks.  You'd think with the horrible roads around Tenneco's test facility, they could build shocks that would last a lifetime.  They don't.
