out here you only get pissed if its a long "beeeeeeeeep" - maybe 5 seconds long. if it's a short burst of "beep beep beep" that probably means the guy knows you, and if its just a short singular burst "beep" that's a passive aggressive way of saying "can you please hurry up, you asshole?"

Around six months ago I wrote in the "pissed off" thread about my company being bought out and impending layoffs and salary cuts...and working under people with less experience and more arrogance.
I am happy to report that things are much brighter now. After the acquisition a lot of our key people quit and our business turned to shit...we went into the red for the first time in a decade. I was very tempted to jump ship but decided to wait until things were more clear. Thankfully, new senior management came into place and questioned why the acquisition ever happened, restructured so that our former president is back in charge and we are taking a leadership role in our business area.
Personally, it is looking like I played this really well by being patient and waiting out the transition and I am looking good to get a more senior role. I was able to forge some good relationships with key people in the new organization who will be reporting to me....and they announced today that our salaries are not getting touched.
uhm who the hell are you?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
just kidding brah... and I'm glad you stayed.. haven't planned my trip out there yet.
