I wouldn't have even participated in this thread, if not for the suggestion that the folks that don't play vidoe games, or at least spend a limited amount of time playing them are the folks that are the weirdos.
I was only pointing out that thise folks aren't the weirdos, they're the normal folks, who perform tough, dirty, dangerous jobs everyday, to make a living.
Most of the gamer dorks I've worked with were substandards workers, lacked maturity, motivation, common sense and social skills. They couldn't take an ass chewing; when I got in their ass about something, they wanted to throw a hissy fit and drag up. They had problems telling the difference between a discussion and a lecture; had an inability to respect authority; believed that instructions were optional.
My dad told me when I was a kid: "There are two kinds of men in the world, roughnecks and pussies." The gamer dorks usually AREN'T roughnecks.
