The proper question is: did the agent get home safely at the end if shift

My boss is vastly under qualified. Like, he has zero background in what we do. It's so bad that people in other departments ask how we function.

Anyhow, because he doesn't have the background, and because we do something that requires specialized knowledge, he has a tendency to come up with process "improvements" that cannot possibly be implemented. This time around, he recommended we adjust one of our financial processes in a manner that is expressly prohibited by the laws that govern what we do. He asked one of my co-workers for their input first, and he was shot down (said co-worker was so shocked that he'd even proposed it that they gave me a heads up). Next, he came to me and asked for my input, and I said, "no. You can't do that, and here's why."

Apparently, he wasn't looking for actual input, but someone who will tell him "yes." He went to someone outside our department (who would also be impacted by this change), and tried to sell them on it. He came back, excited, and told me this person said "yes," which shocked me. He must have left something out of his sales pitch, because I happened to run into this person later in the day, and I said something along the lines of, "so you're good with xxxxx proposal," to which they responded, "oh, THAT'S what he wants to do!? We can't do that!"

I can only imagine how frustrating that might be. One of my primary jobs is to be the person who definitively says "no, we can't do that" -- which is exactly why position reports directly to a board committee and is independent of any of the revenue-generating business units. Otherwise my job would be structurally crippled.
So if you'd like me to call your boss and tell him he's a dumb-ass, I'd be happy. I have professional expertise in that role.

@MrG we must work for the same idiot. I'm convinced he has some pictures of somebody in upper mgt. stealing the virginity of livestock.

Not enough players at soccer tonight for a game so we just kicked the ball for a bit then got bored and decided to do a penalty shootout. My turn in net, I reach for a shot above my head and jam my finger on the cross bar, leaving my ring finger pointing 45 degrees backwards.

On the plus side, the decrepit Canadian healthcare system provided some solid care.

Okay I am currently watching a TV channel on which they are airing a commercial about catheters. I think they said the word "catheter" about 40 times in 15 seconds. They were talking about how the catheters they make are a new painless kind of catheter that doesn't cut you up inside like a normal catheter. Honestly I hope I never have to have to use a catheter because it sounds really painful to have a catheter shoved up inside your pee-hole.

The experience is far less painful than worrying about it

You're a corporate lawyer: you only exist to ruin ideas and say things like "that's too risky."

I imagine that once you've gotten past the initial pain of insertion, it feels pretty good. And if you use enough lube to get it in there in the first place, it's probably not even that painful.
