Happy 15th Birthday, Portland Mercury! A Note from Editor in Chief Wm. Steven Humphrey
I am a born and raised Portlander. I love all you hipsters, punks, yuppies, scenesters, hippies, bikers, etc....I don't care what your style is or how old you are, I will treat you all with the same respect you deserve. That being said, if you work in the service industry, try for at least once not doing the passive aggressive bullshit attitude that this town is infamous for being. Not only can anyone see past it, but that cow-chewing-curd dead stare you give of either hating your job or the people that come in is tiring and juvenile. If you don't like your job quit, otherwise, try making the most of your day and you'd be surprised how much you get back out of it. Put a smile on your face, asshole.
