The browns QB is doing great and his cards are in the rise. That means its time for me to move them. I have several autos, a few GU, some serial #'d rc's and parallels. Priority is to sell, but would trade for/toward something else I might like.

LMK if interested.

QUOTE(bob_TCC @ Oct 24 2007, 01:04 PM)
In this specific example, Richard is just being more direct because a number of us are simply tired of the excuses from certain members about their transactions.  Because of those excuses, many of us then spend too much of our time dealing with their transactions instead of being able to enjoy the site and our hobby.

As an example, this is the PM that was just received from Chip:
We'll give him about 2 weeks to send the cards.  Otherwise, he can have the rest of this year and every year after this year to decide whether his permanent loss of access to TCC was worth his decision.

-Bob

Bob, I am just saying that Richard often comes off as snippy, but thats just him. I dont see it as being intentional. I realize its part of his job to keep the gears greased and move things along when and where possible. Don't forget I was a recipient of some "grease" to keep my own "gears moving."

Lets not take the focus off of Bob being a bad parent and me not knowing how to do my job. I thought thats what this was all about.

ba da bum.

really, its not worth getting worked up over. if you dont know richard's way, you arent around as much as I thought. he dishes it out, but takes it too.

So you arent biased that your kid is the best there is? Hmm, that would concern me about parenting. arent parents SUPPOSED to think they have the best kid in the world? Its OK Bob, not all bias is bad.

If thats the best you've got, you're slipping. I expected so much more from you.
Obviously didn't keep you from posting it though. If you wonder what my next one will be, how about lobbing me another beach ball to hit out of the park. Its not as much fun if you make it easy though.

The point was simple...

Being married provides a unique perspective.  Being a parent provides a unique perspective.  All of the training in the world might even allow someone to understand something very well.  However, that training still doesn't replace the value of having personal experience on the subject matter.  wink.gif

Anyways, this "little pot" is going to move on to other things.

I certainly found value in trying to help a young member deal with life and understand the importance of controlling his own actions (e.g., being respectful of a parent).  I don't see the same value in further debating anyone's "credentials" on the subject, whether they be parents, non-parents or PhDs.

-Bob

Being a parent provides a biased perspective. just like you kid is better than any other, they are better looking than any other and that they are more special. thats your job as a parent. I could do more good than a parent telling most kids that same information because the kids EXPECT their parents to say that kind of thing.

I have personal experience with many more subjects. I know more about kids than their parents do because I have a greater level of trust from the kids than they have in their parents. I am unbiased and impartial. THAT is what gives me an edge over a parent. I see kids for what they are and try not to see them for what they could be.

QUOTE(bob_TCC @ Oct 24 2007, 11:53 AM)
No.  In this example, you based your thoughts and comments on a post made by a 13-year-old boy at a trading card forum.  With your extensive training, I would have hoped that you would have thought that an immediate reaction of referring to his Dad's action as "childish" and inappropriate might be a tad irresponsible - considering that you weren't able to perform your tested/proven analysis.
This sort of seems like the marriage counselor who starts with, "I've never been married, but marriage..."  Trust me...  Until you've said I do, you don't have a clue!  wink.gif

To tell me that I dont have a clue about something shows you are contradicting yourself. didnt you just tell me that I was making a decision based on something that I didnt have all the facts about? Sounds like a little pot calling the kettle black there. You obviously are unaware of what i know. you are doing what you just accused me of doing.


Man I love the fact I can post here from my PDA

Tom,

How many children do you have?  unsure.gif

-Bob
*



Again Bob, I am unbiased as I can view many different children of several different backgrounds and be impartial as none of them are mine. I base my information on documented fact and tested/proven analysis. I dont base my thoughts and actions on what 1 or 2 kids that I see every day and have obligations to.

I dont need to HAVE a child to know how to deal with one. I have more children's futures hanging in the balance of decisions that I make for them and their families in 1 week than most people will in a lifetime.

My experience in the field is where I get my information. Having personally been responsible for getting over 300 children out of bad home situations, into better ones and into High School and or College.

Asking me how many children I have, seeming to imply that I dont know what I am talking about would be like me asking you where your PhD in Psychology came from. I am sharing my experience and beliefs. I am sharing what I know and how I feel. People dont have to agree. I have a pretty extensive background in this field and in the studies associated with it.

Now that is the correct analysis in psychological terms , Tom!! laugh.gif

The little situations like cardcrazes just annoy me and require only impulse instant reaction...
THIS IS WHAT WE CALL CONTRADICTORY FIGHT OR FLIGHT RESPONSE


Now I dont classify that as immaturity or inability to control my temper...
THE IMPULSE IS BASED ON THE PUNISHMENT FITTING THE CRIME. IF ITS SEVERE, A SEVERE REACTION MIGHT BE NECESSARY. HIS DEFIANCE OVER A VIDEO GAME WAS NOT SEVERE.

but regardless I am going to get "instant gratification" for their defiance, disobeying.. whatever you wanna classify it as.
IF YOU NEED TO GET INSTANT GRATIFICATION, STOP BUYING UPPER DECK wink.gif

Your analysis is far too personally based Dr. Emerick. Can never have an accurate psychological analysis when you base it on personal experience. No matter how unbiased you think you can be, you cant. Its human nature.

So you never let something come out that shouldnt have? You think of EVERY WORD that comes out of your mouth before you say it?

Yeah, didnt think so. Must mean YOU dont have any class then. Or maybe it just came out. Sounds more plausible to me.

20.00 cash/MO/Paypal
