ROTFLMAO. Well, with a reference to Ambrose Bierce in mind, I shall forge
ahead with an analogy anyway...(see Techwr-l Feb6, post number 80)
...and it was a great analogy. Thank you for answering my question.
To continue the analogy, my purpose in asking it is to gain insight as to
why an employer would want a peach (permanent employee) as opposed to a
contractor. For me and others, it's important to understand the language
of peaches, even if we want to remain apples.
If I may gently remind everyone: there is a difference between
understanding a point of view and agreeing with it/condoning it. It's a
hard thing to remember when you can only find peaches when you want
apples, but let's keep it in mind.
Blessed are the peach makers - for they shall see jobs (or contracts...)
PS I know what ROFTL means, but what does MAO mean?
