Sep 14th 2010 6:53AM Not to repeat what may have been said at an earlier time, but I find House deliciously cringe- worthy. Who among us is not a know-it-all, in our own minds? Never wanted to rub anyones' face in your clear intellectual(physical,artistic, whatever) superiority? I sadly admit that I have(with NO basis in fact). But societal norms somewhat keep me from making a complete jerk of myself. Not House. Someone on a previous ep(Wilson?) opined that House might have been able make a diagnosis because he too had a form of autism. If so, that is at the base of his single-minded disregard for others' self-esteem. His unpleasant personality is garden variety cantankerousness.
Jul 28th 2007 4:06AM Recently a customer of mine dropped a Blackcard in my hand. My eyes opened wide, but as required, I asked if she would like to use her store card(also black, with perks). While I can not remember the conversation word for word, I do remember her as being really nice about using the other(heh) black card instead. Nice to know more about the Blackcard.
