                Seems the sort of down to earth guy who you would love having as a long term trusty friend. That’s probably part of the reason why he is so successful . Awesome guitarist on top 🤟🇬🇧🎸

                    I had a really similar situation when i was in college as you did at Peter Blacks. A manager at Walmart told me to dump a bucket of used motor oil from one of the delivery trucks in the creek behind the store. I said no and he went on about me disobeying a direct command. I went to the store's general manager and told him that I was quitting and why. At my exit interview the GM brought in the manager that told me to dump it and they tried to bully me into not documenting that as my reason for quitting. I think they were scared it was going to corporate. After I left I didn't bother to inquire but I think they brushed it under the rug. The Guy was still a manager several years later. People suck.

                          It was all going so well until you had to mention Brexit being a national embarassment. If you love the EU so much, why do you make your guitars in Indonesia? As for not being able to travel or work overseas, I've been lucky enough to live and work in 15 countries, only 5 of which are EU states so that argument is just a load of old ponny.

                            @davedagreat69 It's a reasonable assumption. One wouldn't be embarrassed about something one liked, so it's logical to say Rob is no fan of Brexit. It's also logical that Rob dislikes Brexit because he favours remaining in the EU. Why would Rob favour remaining in EU if he didn't love it? Not really so difficult after all, is it?

                            Why does thinking that Brexit is a national embarrassment, automatically mean that you love the EU? This is the sort of nonsense we seem to be hearing a lot of these days.

                              lol apart from you know slavery up until the 19th century, segregation up until the 90s, the murder of the vast majority of native Americans, the nuking of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the Mai Lie massacre, starting a war with Iran over things that didn't exist, but yeah big orange man who says rude words is the worst thing in american history.
