    Placed 2 orders online on the same day, one to come from the US one to come from the UK, the one from the UK arrived today but no sign of the US one. How does something from a neighboring country take so much longer to arrive?

    I do not understand people who fail to realize 90% of any job is about making your boss look good.

    I don't get Facebook in general. I've been using it since 2009, sparingly, but I'm still not sure why. I have a policy that if more than 50% of your posts are pictures of your children, you get dropped. Therefore, I have like no friends on Facebook anymore and mostly just follow organizations. I don't have kids, so I just can't grasp the obsession of posting pictures of toddlers for the world to see. I have (nay, had) one friend that would have professional photos of her precious little snowflake taken every single damn month and then post them on Facebook.

    I use Facebook to report funny things that my cat said.

    I guess my job is different but I have no impact on my boss' job. I just have to get clients to sign on the line which is dotted and bring in the money.

    Which I do. Oh yes, I do.

    And you don't think your getting clients to pay reflects well on your boss? You don't think that if you didn't do that well, it would reflect badly on your boss?

    It gets them really high and doesn't cost a lot. I don't think most addicts concern themselves with more than the immediate present moment.
