I'm seriously considering taking this up with HR.
at least your bin was where you left it. those commies ALWAYS place my bin in a new corner in the office i've yet to discover. i'm too busy and important to keep up with its new whereabouts, so i'm just gonna throw all my trash on the floor.

JUUUUUSTICCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

I am in such a rage right now, I don't even know what to say (or write for that matter).

I was just about to leave for my normal Tuesday at 2pm tee-time when my secretary comes in and says that I can't leave because I have to sign the payroll checks. FFS, now I have to miss my round because those people don't have enough in savings to wait an extra 24 hours to get paid?

That's the problem with America - no one takes responsibility anymore...

Oh sweet holy hell is this day going down hill!

Not only have I missed my tee time, the woman from HR (is being fat and boisterous part of the HR job description?) just popped her head in to suggest that we do a "surprise picnic" for the workers on Friday. Guess who 'gets' to stay on site and mingle with the workers? I was supposed to lunch at the club the guys that day as well!

Fuck! A guy gets one 'C' at Dartmuth and he pays for it the rest of his life! Piss off, Karma, piss off!

This is probably a low point for my career.

All 3 water coolers are out of water.

We're out of paper plates.

My assistant, who just started on Monday, is already a magnet for flirtatious 20-somethings. Plus, she's smarter than I am.

My boss needs a project done by the end of the day, which means less posting on here.

I can't talk about Space Moon with my coworkers.

The business journal that I ordered from Staples, in black, arrived...in fucking beige. Sorry, I don't roll beige style.

I was quoted in some article as being a "Director". I'm a "Vice-President", assclown, I left Director behind ages ago. Fool.

One of our Production Assistants looked me in the eye today. HR? Hello??? Who trains these people?


Sigh.

Looks like your place of business needs a little house cleaning. Take off your tie, roll up your sleeves, pull some files and call those assisstants out one by one and read aloud a list of their faults and make them beg for their jobs. Those that do not beg no longer work there. Those that beg must beg in a manner that pleases thee. I guarentee that by days end @ 9pm, you'll feel much better.

Fucking beige....come on.

Under those conditions I would have just walked out and left a post-it note on my bosses door saying GFY!

I admire your restraint; you are a better human being than I...

This makes a lot of sense.

Yeah, beige. I have a rep to protect. A business journal says a lot about a person. So does my stylish pen.

Dude, no tie today, want the unwashed masses to think I can relate to them, so I lose the tie.

Thanks.

I thought about contacting Amnesty International or some organization Bono likes a lot, but, I'll let it be for now. For now.

The vending machine is out of my favorite Peanut Butter Cookie.

Also, our phones will be down for maintenance for 15 minutes this afternoon.

Lastly, we've had to order bottles of water, since we're out of the big bottles that go in the dispensers. I want my water right from the dispenser, nice and cold, straight into my cup. Fuck this.

Jesus, man. I'm sorry. From now on I'm going to walk around with a copy of the Geneva Convention rules so that when the vending guy is like, "Just wait 5 minutes, I'm almost done refilling this machine," I have proof that that is fucking barbaric and illegal. If I need some Doritos, obviously I need them NOW - not in 5 minutes.

You have no idea how happy it makes me to know that I'm not the only one fighting this battle. Rage, Beav. Rage on.
