So why call it the "diary of a village idiot" ?

And the answer is why not.

I am hoping to throw out some unusual observations on my life, on corporate life in a struggling company (it sucks), on divorced life as a single dad, and on being english on the west coast of the US.

As to being the village idiot, if I am not that then I have a big cartoon balloon with the words "SUCKER" permanantly stuck to the middle of my forehead.

I am the guy who gets the call when women I know are moving and need someone to hump boxes (plus I have a truck). I posted my profession as a mathematician (true) and I got requests for help with math homework.

Now, I know that I am not a dog. In fact, I am pretty good looking and above average in the intelligence department. The problem is that I am just too nice.

So, ladies, answer a nice guy, is there such a thing a guy who is too nice, too kind and too respectful? I tried being an arsehole but it just isn't me. I cannot treat people the way that I have been treated.

I know personally the Hell of which you speak. The answer is, Yes there is such a thing as being too nice. Simply speak up and don't allow people to take advantage of you and you can do that without being an arse (whew, good thing I knew what that meant.)

There is such a thing about being just too nice.... and that will certainly wear you out. Speak up, demand your rights, and be heard!!! lol...

Well, maybe not that bad... but, if you don't, you may regret passing up the best relationship you could have possibly had.

The unfortunate thing is that I was raised to be "nice". What I was raised to believe is that by being kind and nice, you will receive your just rewards just seems to be the ooposite.

Nice guys finish last.
