Re: Is calling a turnkey employee a "sherpa" racist?

Not racist, since the Sherpa are not a race. If you use "sherpa" to mean "schlepper," for fuck's sake, at least use lowercase. Unnecessary appropriation, for sure. Who says, "Jew someone down" or "get gypped" any more? How are those different from calling the ...

Re: PAGE TWO

It's not Sherpas, it's sherpas. "Sherpa" is an ethnic group and takes a capital S; "sherpa" is hijacked, appropriated word that means "to schlep with minimal compensation." Do you use "Sherpa" as your last name? Are you ethnically Sherpa? Do you speak Sherpa? ...

Nothing of substance to add, except deep empathy.

To those across the Internet who feel this lends itself to an easy j...

Don't know who said it, but this: "You're wrapped up in this lame Puritan view that redemption only comes from labor."

Drama versus crankiness and grumpiness

I am interested in hearing from others about drama. How do you recognize or define it? To me, crankiness and grumpiness can be worked through and solved, sometimes relatively easily (e.g., drink some water, take a break, acknowledgment of the emotion, engagement without defensiveness, etc.). Drama i...
