Once again I would agree on your conclusions based on the information I have posted in this thread alone.
Well yes that is all I have to go on.

With the current info I would think that your shift boss is afraid you might take his job because you are more capable.

I have a very smart fellow working for me whom I'll refer to as Eddie. The standing joke here is, "If Eddie ever got Tourette's, how would anyone know?"

He does not have to worry about that, it is an ungrateful job, more pressure for working overtime, and you have to deal with people like me. I need more time for my audio projects and my family.

Where I come from swearing and cussing is like a form of art. I can hardly use regular words here without people reacting to my dialect. Really miss the days in the fishing industry, very vibrant language. Think I would enjoy conversing with "your" Eddie.

Anyway...

Since I already got this thread here, might as well ask people to post their moral alignment (think d&d rpg or equivalent).

There is: Lawful - Chaotic - Unlawful
And: Good - Neutral - Bad

A lawyer protecting a drug syndicate would be Lawful Bad. Most proper policemen would be Lawful Good. A street thug might be either Unlawful Good, Unlawful Chaotic, or Unlawful Bad.
I would probably fall into the Chaotic Good category, giving precedence to Good above following laws or regulations.


Also:
Any good detailed electronics books to recommend? last friday I ordered: Switching Power Supplies A - Z Second Edition by Sanjaya Maniktala. 768 pages of smps goodness.
BARNES & NOBLE | Switching Power Supplies A - Z by Sanjaya Maniktala | NOOK Book (eBook), Hardcover

Could be, the auto sensor removes the word even when we go to look at it in it's original form so we wouldn't know.

That last sentence was a test to see if it does such substitution within a word.
It won't selectively remove letters, just words.

Yes, the roofing industry offers a similar amount of added colour, I've noticed. I just write it off as having to wait so long for their Ph.D's to pay off.

We have our way of talking in the lab and it would embarrass sailors.

Yeah, well I'll just keep at it. No sense changing jobs, better to just up the pace and work it out. Show him my back in the "work-race". The commute time is very short and the pay is ok. Is it just me or is society growing "colder"? I find there is less room for people these days, all about the numbers. Very certain the various "reality" shows are not helping peoples relation to gossiping and *** licking.

Thank you for that book tip, seems interesting, covers many topics.

We don't really want to be like "House", but IT people used to get away with that; almost expected to be a bit odd. A nerd is often really a high-functioning borderline aspergers misfit. We all want to be "out-standing", but management prefers "in-fitting"

Just keep your shoes and image shiny, because the manager who can't tell good work from bad has nothing else to go by.
