Too Stupid To Live, Defined.

Wow. Shaking my head here...

Army veteran says job recruiter told her she enlisted 'for a paycheck,' report says
A Wisconsin Army veteran says an employment recruiter slammed her service and wrote in an e-mail that he believed she joined the military for the paycheck "not my freedom," The Stevens Point Journal reported.

Gabriella Barrett, 23, who was medically discharged from the Army in 2011, was reportedly in line for a customer service job at a Stevens Point, Wis., company. She was screened by Randstad, a recruiting company. But as she was putting the finishing touches on the hiring process she told the paper an employee at the firm, Sergio Ortiz, sent her an "infuriating" e-mail.
He put it INTO AN E-MAIL that he didn't think she deserved his thanks for her service. AN E-MAIL. I'm guessing it was a company e-mail, too. This is one of those cases where doing nothing - you know, keeping your fool piehole shut - is a million times better than saying something and proving that, yes, you are a fool.

He was fired, and I can't say I blame his company. Not only did he say something incredibly stupid and offensive, but he was idiotic enough to do it in writing, where it can haunt him - and his company - the rest of his life. This is someone guaranteed to make your company look bad. I hope he doesn't get a job in the fast food industry, because as certain as little green apples are green he's gonna spit in your food.

Ms. Barrett, thank you for your service. Sergio Ortiz, enjoy your job search. I'm doing my part to make sure your name - Sergio Ortiz - shows up in plenty of searches so that future employers can see exactly the caliber of person they are potentially hiring. Due diligence and all that. Have fun finding a job in this instant digital age, schmuck.

Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

That is all.

Makes me wonder if Mr. Sergio Ortiz is part of the Facebook generation, and hadn't yet learned that the Internet never forgets.

A Texas Christian Univ employee, Athletic Director person, went stupid on FB recently-saying some pretty callous and ugly things about the Texas A&M Bonfire collapse in 1999 (12 students died, many injured). Outrage was immediate and directed towards this guys boss all the way to the head guy. Long story short, TCU chose to accept the guy's resignation. Right or wrong, the perception was he was speaking for TCU. I'm guessing there were other things that factored into the decision-not just the content of the post. But...as Dave said..the internet doesn't forget.

And is there something wrong with joining just for the money? I mean, I'm as patriotic as the next person, and I freely admit that I joined the Army for the money. That being said, it still required sacrifices and suffering. But the bottom line is it doesn't matter WHY anyone chooses to serve but merely that they did choose to do so.

This loser was a waiter at some taco restaurant before he became a "recruiter". he's also from los angeles so he is definitely a part of the libtard generation that is too pussified to earn a paycheck by serving in the armed forces. He chose to cook tacos and roll burritos and wait on people instead of picking gun and shoot bad guys. He's an email and internet tough guy. Look for his profile on linkedin and see if he'd last a day in the service.

@Formynder: Our duties and responsibilities far outweigh the paycheck. It takes a special sort of ingrate to disparage people who go into harms way to protect democracy. I’m a retired Army Sergeant First Class. I became a better person and citizen during my 30 years of service. I had the privilege of knowing some of the finest people ever to wear the uniform, and I will never forget them. Becoming a Soldier is Ortiz could never achieve, let alone appreciate. It embodies the principles, values, and dedication of people far better than he. He's the kind of pogue who mouths off and sits on his ass, while others do what it takes to protect his freedom.
