Guilty or Not Guilty!!

You Decide!!

Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and welcome to the First Addition of You Decide.  In this case I will be asking for a simple Guilty or Not Guilty vote in the case of Highwayman vs The blog world and FB world.  I will lay out all the facts in this case and let you decide if Highwayman is either guilty or not guilty of poor judgement.

Fact:  On the morning of 9 June 2012, I received a phone call from my mother telling me that My grandmother had died earlier in the morning. She was 93 and had been sick for quite a while.

Fact:  Growing up,  my grandmother had a big impact on myself and my brothers.  Highway is one of my older brothers. It was always fun going to Grandmothers house for Christmas and holidays.  I am willing to bet that all of my siblings have fond memories of big cereals bowls and watching pro wrestling at midnight at grandma’s house.

Fact:  Grandma immersed herself in our hobbies growing up.  I watched Yankee games with her and she was wildly interested in helping my brother (Slickman) build his baseball card collection.  Which was priced some years ago at more than 4,000 dollars.

Fact:  My brother Highwayman on the morning following my Grandmothers passing, posted comments about my Grandmother that could be described by most as insulting, inflammatory and lacked a basic decency.  All of my grandmother children are still alive and could have viewed the FB post.

Now I ask you if you were a godson or daughter or cousin or uncle how would you view behaviour like that.  Highway has had plenty of time to tell his side of the story in the past years, but only came forward with all this nastiness the day after Grandma’s passing. That to me sounds like it was done with malicious intent and its intent was to hurt those that were around grandma…You decide  GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY.

My Uncle Sam!!

One of the buildings my Uncle owns.

Well my Uncle Sam and I decided about 2 years ago that we were going to part ways here next month.  Our deal was a simple one, I told him I no longer saw things his way and I would like to resign.  He happily said “Fine young man I understand, how about you finish out your contract until the summer of 2012 and you can go”.  I said “Cool yeah I can do that.”  Somethings have happened in the last 2 yrs to really prohibit me from going beyond this summer but that is water under the bridge.  For sure, I can say my Uncle has gotten off track with his company.   I think he hires too young and puts alot on their shoulders at any one time.  Dont take me wrong, he looks after them well like he did with me.  But with the way young kids are today,  you hire young and shit is bound to happen.  So  none the less next month he going to let me say my peace and let me go about my own way.  We also agreed that he was going to compensate for any medical problems I incurred along the way, and pay me for the rest of my life because I was loyal to him and his company for such a long time.  My Uncle hired me young, taught me a trade and let me travel with him all over the world.  Yeah I  dont agree with alot of his current workcenter policies, but its his company and he runs it the way he sees fit. But hey, I know he will find someone to replace me and hopefully he treats them as well as he did me.
