I forgot to make a cover page for my TPS Reports.

That was the end of my white collar days.

I do freelance now. Maybe you've read my stuff, under the biline of "Jane Doe."

I have a powerful office, befitting someone of my powerful status here at work.

I issue commands from here. The power I feel is immense...but, fleeting....and afterwards, I need comforting, really.

But, nobody ever issues me a hug.

Just imagine that every O in your memos are hugs and every X is a kiss.

I'd do author. I think I may have the skills, but I know I don't have the discipline.

Or maybe I'd just double post for a living.
lol.

I'd be Arthur. He was awesome, just a little drunk English fella. I could fake the accent, especially after a few drinks.

If you've seen some of these FYM threads, you can interpret pretty much anything to say anything you want.

We got moved out of FYM, though, because FYM is too busy handling Placenta threads.

Apparently this topic was a little too "mind-freeing" for some...

OMG! If working about 15 - 18 hours unpaid overtime every week means anything, I feel your pain! Why can't they fucking pay salaried employees overtime?

I've been through that crap with previous jobs. It wouldn't have been so bad if I was an actual manager and made a decent salary to begin with, but I wasn't. I'm hourly now, and I'm so glad. I had to work 44 hours last week, but I got paid overtime.
