Have vest will bully







What is it about fluro vests & intimidation?

Over the past few years it has become painfully apparent that once someone is ensconced inside one they assume a mantle of power and then somewhat ridiculously feel emboldened to boss folk around!

First I want to know: when did we become so used to this 'high-vis-vest-bullying'?

and...

Secondly I want to know: why do we put up with it?

  4. I make a minimal wage, passed both an IQ and EQ test (by having a minimal score on both) and my mother dresses me funny; you will respect my authoritay!

    There's little that can be done about it except to convince a super majority that they just aren't going to put with this sort of shit, but the super majority seems more inclined to take the "Thank you, sir. May I have some more?" position.

    I don't get it, but there it is.

  5. You're both right - and it's depressing - what's to be done to 're-condition the 'super majority' back to a 'grown-up-in-charge-of-your-own-life' position?

    sigh
