    Reasons why I have an android

    1. I'm stuck in my 2 year contract (I've only been in my position for about a year)
    2. No discount on phones that are "Locked" to a carrier. and I dont feel like paying $700 for an iPhone.
    3. Rooted, 'Nuff said.

    I've used Windows and Android phones from the get go. And if doing technical support for Apple has taught me anything, I will stick to what I know.

    I used to work at Chryslers warren truck plant. Like Pikey said, if you were non Chrysler, and parked in Chysler only, i had to write a ticket. After 3 tickets, car gets towed at owners expense. If they parked in handicap space with no sticker, towed its not fun dealing with someone who just worked 8-10 hours and find out their car was towed. They used to boot at this site but the union reps complained about it

    Yes that is bad, I work for GM and I buy GM products no excuses. I look at it as profit for myself, If you drive a competitors car to my plant parking lot they give you a warning. If you do it again, you get towed and then you have to pay to get it out. My mom drove her ford ranger to work, and they gave her a warning lol!

    What if you had an older classic car or truck? My dad had a 62 Dodge power Wagon that I still think fondly of. Driving that onto the lot would get a warning?

    That is pretty funny considering that at the GM tech center they do not have those rules. As far as buying GM products, My dad has worked for GM for over 30 years, he has only ever bought GM. He said that his next vehicle will not be a GM. He is going to buy a Dodge grand caravan. GM does not offer what he needs/wants, so what is he supposed to do? Pay $28,000 for a vehicle that does not fit his needs just because he works for the company? He can get a dodge van for $24,000 out the door, loaded, with a lifetime bumper to bumper warranty. I know, everyone says, "just buy an acadia." My sister has one. It was much more expensive than my wife's van (even with my father's discount), there is not nearly as much cargo room behind the 3rd row, the third row leg room is terrible compared to the dodge van.
    In my opinion, if the company you work for makes a product that is what you need, then you should buy it from them, if they don't have what you need you should not settle for what they have you must go elsewhere.

    If I worked for GM or ford and drove a 69 dodge super bee to work to find a ticket. I'd be pissed. Maybe enough so that I would look for another job. IMO a company has no business telling an employee what they can or can not purchase. I know Obama is in office now and things have changed drastically, but this is still considered a free country where we can buy/drive/work for whomever the hell we want. So as for the ko's question "is it bad?", heck no it's not bad.

    Years ago (early 70s), I worked at an AMC plant. You young guys wont even know what that is. Anyways, me and my dad always had Chevys. The war vets with handicaps got preferred parking. The next lot was for management and guys who drove AMCs...Then the 3rd lot was the rest of us riff raff who drove everything else. There was no ticketting or warnings or such.
    Funny thing was the war vets....they would hobble past the gate house of the plant. Once out past that, they would tend to stand straighter and walk much faster....Cant blame them for that, just thought it was funny
