Off Topic: The Thread

Recommended Posts

I was considering going to Sweden this fall but between what happened to G-Easy a while ago and the A$AP Rocky thing now and my ummmm everything 🙄 I’m terrified of the idea of getting locked up in a foreign country.  

My cousins in the UK said recently there’s been a rash of crazy arrests there of foreigners even EU citizens in a what they say is a massive cash grab by the government.  They won’t go and are advising me not to, my brother was there in March but he doesn’t drink/party etc. But he said in a few places there was a strong anti-American sentiment and they made it known.

anyone been recently or know anything about all this?

In June my girlfriend and I went on vacation to Ireland and Portugal, we had no issues with any kind of anti-American sentiment in either country.

I travel frequently and spend time across Europe including the UK and Sweden. I don’t know what kind of places your cousins are hanging out in but unless you’re planning on starting a fight with someone or importing illegal material you’ll be as safe there as you are here.

Because @flyfishing3 (Mike) has a thing about tattoos. Did this guy steal his idea from you and then publish it on LinkedIn?

We almost fired our design guy once.  

He walked in in a short sleeve shirt and the owners saw his tats. 

He just doesnt wear shot sleeves any more. 

 

Germans, whatcha gonna do, its been the major deciding factor in me getting a tat.  Id rather keep my job lol.

I think people can do whatever they want, we all make decisions that affect our life.  But if you turn people off by having a bunch of TATS, don't be mad at  anyone else.

 

close minded, maybe. But a person doesn't have to like what you like.

 

We are a relatively small company.  Plenty of Customer service people have ink.  Only 1 outside sales person has a Tat and you would never know he has it.    He worked for the company like 13 years before the owner even knew about it.

Brother in law has chest and both arms full sleeves, his line of work though lol if you didnt have tats you'd really question him - drug/alcohol recovery coach 

He was smart though, they end a few inches above wrists so no way of knowing with long sleeves

for me, i just have an "850R" tramp stamp

Pics or GTFO 🤣

@flyfishing3 the guy on LinkedIn runs a window washing business. I mean seriously? I guess I’ve been spending so much time in Australia lately where they kind of give you a funny look if you don’t have a tattoo.
