      I apologize to everyone on the board for my last post about getting my car getting broken into. I realize I shouldn't have said what I said, however I do know that it was hispanic people who did it. I had just found out about it and understandably quite pissed off at the time, which is why I said what I said. I have respect for people of every race, however when this happens for the 2nd time and i've heard it from many others, it just angers me, because I know they aren't doin anything besides this to make money. U guys can think whatever you want about me on this board. However if u were in my position I doubt u would be calm and orderly about it. Once again there is no excuse for what I said other than I was angry, So I apologize.

      I think you are cool.
      It takes maturity to publicly admit you were wrong and appolojise. More people need that level of integrity.

      I am sure we all would be rich if we had a nickle for every time we have said some thing we have regretted.

      Thanks man. Most of us know you didn't mean anything by it to those other than the thiefs. I just wanted to shut the thread up before it got out of hand.

      I'm sure many if not all of us have gotten angry at someone and accidentally said something predjudicial and derogatory. Happens to the best of us. Don't sweat it, and I hope everything gets taken care of.

      Don't be sorry.

      You have every right to be pissed. You have every right to blame somebody.

      All this political corectness makes me wanna puke. If you live in an area that has more Brown people then White People, then there is a higher percentage that they did it.

      If you where to say "Those damn Rednecks", I would not get mad. There are some bad Honkeys out there.

      Everybody has a bit of hate in them. It is impossible to like everybody.

      The way to deal with that is to hate everybody, but equally.

      That's so sweet. I didn't know you fought for the rights of handsome Portuguese guys. It's a random group to support, but at least you're supporting someone.

      :p

      Hey Slick, anyone can be a racist, but it takes a man to appologize for what he said. Good job!!:D

      You dont follow? He was making talking trash about mexicans ... it did not offend me because i am not mexican. But if he were to talk about handsome portuguese guys then i would be offended because i am a handsome portuguese guy. I dont know how much clearer i can make it.

      I paid some paint contractors in full (nice guys) before they had finished the job. When they were done I put a post-it note on all the areas I felt needed some touch up and the like. It would have taken one guy one day of labor. However, when he came back and started the work all he saw were dozens and dozens of post-it notes. I'm sure he thought "Screw this--I'm outta here!" And that's what he did.

      A few months later I saw him at Menards and he looked right at me with his buddy and turned around and left the store IMMEDIATELY. It was all the proof I needed that he was guilty. I'm sure it hurt him a lot more than it hurt me (about 8 hours of work to finish his job up).

      I know it stings to have stuff stolen (all of my tools were just ripped off, in excess of $1K), but if you believe in justice and the Almighty, they will get what they deserve at some point.
