    I'm a little worried for Harvey the Birdman. Starting to sound like Conne circa 08-09.

    also the 'true' story of hanukkah is that a fringe ultra-religious terrorist group took over israel and forced the majority of the population to follow their insanely strict religious law through terror.

    I think that any good manager would, but a senior employee actually whining about it is pathetic (and anyone reporting directly to piob is senior). How many people here have put in serious hours (80+/wk) and never complained? The reward is the knowledge you've done a good job and the experience that you get to put on your resume, and if you're lucky, a bonus. i couldn't give a damn about a pat on the back unless it leads to a promotion. I don't understand fully grown men that need that sort of affirmation. But maybe it's a woman. :satisfied:

    here's my positive reinforcement: be thankful you have a job, be thankful I don't shortchange you in terms of pay and workload, be thankful I pay you above what the industry pays you, be thankful that even if I believe no one is indispensable you are still working here and be thankful that on a good day I am willing to entertain your complaints/rants/problems, work related or otherwise, without having that frown on my face that says "I am not interested with your problems."....... /horriblebossrant

    i dont disagree in that scenario. i was just pointing out that there are benefits to positive reinforcement in some cases. :)


    sounds less horrible than any of my bosses.

    I slept with this girl last night whose pants I've been trying to infiltrate for roughly eight years (very passively though). The key was letting her gain 10 pounds, waiting until she came off a rough holiday break up, visiting an art gallery with her, and playing along with some of her feminist bullshit.

    Love my work schedule.

    Usually 4 days a week, sometimes 5. Then 3-5 days off...the benefit of doing shift work.

    Currently on a 5 day weekend (Sunday-Thursday).
