No idea. I'm not making excuses for mistakes.

A message sent when a kid has been kidnapped, and is currently missing, isn't a mistake.

Yeah, don't work much. That's why I was on the road home at 4:30 am.

And parasite... that's a damn fine word for you. A despicable human being that cares not a bit for a child's life. So much trouble for you to turn off that alarm that you'll spend a day and a half complaining about it.

See ya subhuman. I have to go do some more work tonight.

Lol sounds like I was spot on with your “employment”



Get back to me about beauty sleep after you work 12-16hrs a day 7 days a week for a couple months.

So disagreement about a policy decision makes someone a subhuman.

And we sneer about the left 'eating their own'.

As far as amber alerts go, I don’t know that sending them to me on my phone helps. Seems like the electronic signs on the highway are more useful. I mean if waking me up in the middle of the night resulted in solving one I’d suspect I wouldn’t need the alert to wake me up as I’d have a bigger issue to deal with.

A better option would be more than just enable/disable. I’d be okay with the notification, as I’d see it when I picked up the phone. Bonus if car play or android auto read it to me when driving. But treating it like an emergency notification is probably overkill as most of us won’t be in a position to see the vehicle.

Main point is less obnoxious alert that doesn’t interrupt sleep, meetings, etc. where it’s most likely not to be productive.

This horse shit of using amber alerts when one parent “abducts “ their own child has to stop also. Should be reserved for actual abductions.
Words have meaning. Like calling everyone a “hero”. Destroys the word.
I've never heard so many grown men complain so much about not getting their 8 hours. Are you guys getting woken up every night from amber alerts? I can't imagine it happens frequently. Man up.

It happened the last 2 nights in a row

So yes...I'd say it happens frequently enough to piss me off

It happened TWICE?! I'm so sorry for your inconvenience. Good grief.
