    Micro-management from above. Apparently a course I have proposed is "too challenging." [​IMG]

    Well, I did get my boss coffee. I think I spent at least an hour reading gossip blogs, and another hour on the politics blogs.

    Having my fantasies shit on by facts. I am a skeptical bastard that seldom allows myself the pleasure to revel in remote possibilities. Alas. Resisting the urge to shoot the messanger.

    +1. Life sucks. I notice how this forum truly does make me feel extremely lazy - looking at the high percentage of Ivy League grads and law students here, it makes my puny community college degree I am working on seem worthless. It doesn't exactly piss me off because it was my decision not to put a gigantic priority on higher education, but it is still somewhat discouraging [​IMG]

    jet,

    you're a good kid, and not lazy, but I honestly don't think that you are doing the right things to get ahead in your chosen career. with all the efforts you are putting in in life, it would be a shame for you to end up the shift head of customer service with an airport, because you don't have the right education.

    I upgraded to Firefox 3.6 and the auto scroll function doesn't work anymore. [​IMG] I wish they would just give you an option to roll everything back. FAACKKKK!!!!!

    I agree. It's short-sighted imo, but I wasted tons of time on even less productive things at his age. That said, there's nothing to stop him from going to university afterwards. It's not the quickest path, but I think committed & smart people that work hard can get there no matter what. I certainly took some unproductive detours but I'll be in six figure territory soon. If you're not really committed to school, I actually think it's better to wait. You can't really undo a bad GPA if you're not motivated at the start. I shut a bunch of doors because I wasn't motivated at school.

    friend of mine once took a shit and placed said feces on top of one of the ceiling boards inside his workplace nemesis' room. they couldn't find what was the source of the nasty smell inside his office for weeks.

    Take said sneaky co-workers out for drinks the night before the big assignment. Get his ass shitfaced and drop him off in some random place. Show up the next day, on time, and WIN.

    (If he's much more of an alcoholic than you are, and you cannot get him shitfaced, then just make sure he gets caught with hooker and blow.)


    You might have something here.

    Thanks for trying but won't work. Japanese office= open office.
