Ya know, I've written 3 replies to this passive aggressive nonsense and deleted them. So let's just get this out in the open.
Last night, I was teaching a woodshop basics class to brand new members. 7 of them. And we went inside the shop and got started and when we got to the second step, to the jointer, I noticed that the dust collector wasn't working. So, in troubleshooting, we figured out that the siren system was down, and it was completely overloaded... barrel full, cyclone full, filter full, backed up into the ducting.
So, we stopped class and cleaned the whole thing up. I knew the dumpster was full, so rather than carting the barrel out there and dumping it, we put all the chips into trashbags.
And this is where I failed your high expectations.
Rather than supervising them taking the bags outside, 3 students just did it. Mind you, up until that moment they didn't even know where the dumpster was. But rather than showing them, I told them.
So, to the guys in my class last night who carried the stuff outside, you did exactly right, and you have my apologies. Please don't let this other member sour you on the space. His snide insults aside, you guys stepped up and did exactly what we ask of you, and I (and the rest of @Team_Woodshop) appreciate it.
And Stan, if you want to insult them in person instead of making oblique personal attacks on the internet, please let me know. I'll happily provide them with your contact info.
And in the future, how about you take a half a step back and think before posting?
Isn't excellent. It's rude, it's condescending, and it's totally unnecessary. And it's a terrible way to treat new members.
Many, many years ago I lived in apartments, and we had dumpsters just like the 8 yarder we have at the space. And we were told that if it was full, we were just to leave the bags next to the dumpster. The fact that our waste removal service won't do that isn't documented anywhere that a brand new member would know to look.
And this kind of post is exactly why I tell my students, almost all of whom are brand new to the space, that they should view talk as an issue reporting system and not a place to hang out.
